Hiring the right skill set for the right job at the right time is one of the most difficult tasks managers face. Trying to fit employees in a role either they are not interested in or cannot handle or even promoting someone hoping they will pick up the pace quickly with their new responsibility can lead to inefficiencies.
Why would a manager be opting for a half-suited solution to address a problem?
Many reasons could justify using an unfit or average fit resource to spearhead a project, including:
- The desire to motivate their troops and giving them a perspective of growth or learning opportunity
- Tight deadlines, context, and timing forcing them to grab the first available option
Growth and learning opportunities are a must to elevate your team, yet they require planning and preparation. Often managers don’t have the time nor luxury to train their team members to face upcoming challenges. Even parachuting the most suited resource available in a confronting and perhaps overwhelming situation might result in low performance and efficiency.
The underlying question is, why are we giving up on efficiency so easily? Is it too complicated to contract the right person for the right job until your core resources are ready for it?
Most companies have a thorough supplier selection process to source, select, negotiate and award work to a vendor. All that makes sense; you want top performers, the best price, and quality. So, when it comes to sitting the right person in the right chair, why would we compromise?
