"The people decision is a big gamble - by basing it on what a person can do, it at least becomes a rational gamble. Effective executives make strength productive. They fill positions and promote based upon what a person can do - not to minimize weakness but to maximize strength. Strong people always have strong weaknesses. Where there are peaks there are valleys...When making people decisions, make sure you know the assignment. Then choose a candidate who has proven strength in skill-areas required by the new assignment." Peter Drucker

Today's photo (Wisconsin's capitol in hometown Madison) comes via the Isthmus Pool at Flickr, thanks to WisDoc for his cool spring pic.

Working on an update of our Great General Manager course work (workbook, ppt deck, et al), lots to blog about later today.
