Recruiting Is a Conversation II
(March 23, 2007)

In order to build a farm team system (that has an available player for each slot, when you need it), you need to have well defined specifications for each role in the organization. That's doable at the first level of supervision (and each level above that if the requirements are kept to direct reports). No supervisor, regardless of level, will have more than 50 or so members of his/her farm team (including the current working team).
