Identifying and acquiring the best executive talent is critical to the success of an emerging technology or services venture. Startups, midcap and even divisions of Fortune 500 companies can quickly collapse under the direction of an ineffective mid-level executive. Executing a disciplined executive recruitment process requires more than a rolodex or industry experience and to do it right, it’s harder than you think.
§ Effective executive recruitment requires extensive and disciplined due diligence that is consistent with your goals.
§ A successful process means accelerating the right activities at the right time and discontinuing time wasting activities in order to focus on more important stages of the search process.
§ Reducing the risk of mis-hires necessitates in-depth matching the executive candidate’s experience and skills to a broader range of attributes related to the business drivers, team and culture.
