Locating Transformational Leaders
But how do you find the right person who can implement a vision or who can bring a vision to a company before the solution is in house, a world-class talent?
By making a market mapping, a map of companies, technologies, and sub-technologies that are specialized in such products. As an example: For a mandate, we searched Amazon in Seattle, USA. But we soon realized: The real music is played in China. All startups in Silicon Valley that offer the basic technology we were looking for were of Chinese origin.
We quickly found out where the cluster, the center of these top people, was located. And we came across the National Retail Federation trade show in New York for retail technologies. I went there with a client's CEO and we visited all the companies that had something to do with retail automation. We bought the basic technology from a vendor in China. For recruitment, we talked to the exhibitors and we were asking who for their head of development and we attended the keynote speeches. The result was a shortlist of seven candidates, real talents. Not a single one of them was European.
