How To Put The Right Person In The Right Chair?
Sunny • onManagement 13 years ago • 2 min read

Does your Company have a problem in recruiting the right person for the right chair? If yes, try this simple experiment.

Put around 100 bricks in some particular order in a closed room with an open window. Then send 2-3 candidates into the room and close it from outside. Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours, and then analyze the situation:

If they are counting and recounting the number of
bricks - PUT THEM IN ACCOUNTS DEPT.

If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks
PUT THEM IN ENGINEERING.

If they are arranging the bricks in some other order -
PUT THEM IN PLANNING.

If they are throwing the bricks at each other -
PUT THEM IN OPERATIONS.

If they are sleeping -
PUT THEM IN SECURITY.

If they have broken the bricks into pieces -
PUT THEM IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY.

If they are sitting idle -
PUT THEM IN HUMAN RESOURCE DEPT.

If they have thrown the bricks out of the window -
PUT THEM IN THE MATERIALS DEPT.

If they are clinging onto the bricks -
PUT THEM IN TREASURY.

If they say they have tried different combinations,
yet not a brick has moved -
PUT THEM IN SALES.

If they have already left for the day -
PUT THEM IN MARKETING.

If they are staring out of the window -
PUT THEM IN THE EXPORT.

AND last but not least..........

If they are talking to each other and not a brick has
moved - PUT THEM IN TOP MANAGEMENT
