Why is hiring for talent important?

You can teach skills and knowledge, but you can only hire for talent. You may be able to help an employee discover a hidden talent, but you generally cannot create it. Skills, knowledge, and talent within the same person create an enormously potent combination. However, it is important to keep all three distinct in your mind, particularly when thinking about what talents are needed in a job, and what talents to look for in a resume, and in an interview.

This documents guides you thorough the process, starting with your assessment of which talents are necessary for your position, and how to assess that in a candidate.
