Andeach person I hire should be chosen to make my team better in somespecific way . I am not looking for someone as talented as me. Rather , I amlooking for someone who is more talented than me, at least in onesignificant way.” ©2011 Global Groupware Solutions Limited ©2010 Global Groupware Solutions Ltd.
