An e-mail received that is worth sharing.


Put about 100 bricks in some particular order in a closed
room with an open window.

Then send 2 or 3 candidates in the room and close the door.

Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours and then analyze
the situation.

If they are counting the bricks.
*Put them in the accounts department.*

If they are recounting them..
*Put them in auditing.*

If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks.
*Put them in engineering.*

If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order.
*Put them in planning.*

If they are throwing the bricks at each other.
*Put them in operations.*

If they are sleeping.
*Put them in security.*

If they have broken the bricks into pieces.
*Put them in information technology.*

If they are sitting idle.
*Put them in human resources.*

If they say they have tried different combinations, yet not a brick has been moved.

*Put them in sales.*

If they have already left for the day.
*Put them in marketing.*

If they are staring out of the window.
*Put them on strategic planning.*

And then last but not least.

If they are talking to each other and not a single brick
has been moved.

***Congratulate them and put them in top management***
