Talents Come In Many Different Combinations

"Talents come in many different combinations...

Organizations must be designed around the people available, not people fitted into pure-therory organizations.

...the man with strong management talent and strong technical talent is rarely found. Thinkers are rare; doers are rarer; and thinker-doers are rarest."
(emphasis mine)
