The Talent Myth

Pradyot presents Prof.Moon’s notes on decision making here

The Talent Myth is one of the reasons why corporations pursue star CEOs and performers at other levels in orther organisations.. ” Deep Smarts ” as referred to in the eponymous book by Dorothy Leonard and Walter Swap…That’s what is needed..the kind of smartness that is rooted in not just the mechanics of how to apply a skill but also in the social, cultural and time context of that skill and its application…

The problem with stars is that they often negate your organisations ability to build a team..Stars get results but often at the expense of sustainable long term growth….However, the strategy of constantly identifying stars to kick off an urgent or critical short term project and then moving in someone with Deep smarts may actually be effective!
