Work Principle

Don't assume that a person who has been successful elsewhere will be successful in the job you're giving them.

No matter how good you are at hiring, some of your hires won't work out. Know how the people you're considering operate and visualize how that will produce successful results. Knowing what they did is valuable only insofar as it helps you figure out what they are like.
