How To Put The Right Person In The Right Job

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 the door 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 QUALITY CONTROL

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 STRATEGIC PLANNING

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