Creating the right team or set of employees is like completing a puzzle. You find through the pieces, you pick one, you place it to realise it's not the right one, and then you have to look through the pile as well. The hiring process is pretty much the same. You look through a pile of résumés, pick one candidate and put him or her in the position, often to find that they're not the right fit. Sadly, life is not a puzzle.
