Value Fit over capabilities

Most firms hire based on a job candidate’s resume—assessing how well his or her skills fit the demands of a specific job.

Cutting-edge firms, in contrast, place equal if not greater emphasis on a person’s fit to their culture.

Cultural fit is important in three areas: each person must embrace the group’s higher purpose, the value it places on results, and the value it places on relationships.

The best firms and teams develop robust processes to screen for these traits in the hiring and promotion of their people.
