Analysing individuals, cultivating teams
He was familiar with the region and aware of some key established players. Our job was to profile them, identify other potential candidates and make recommendations. We looked at various criteria, including their experience, sectoral coverage, and personal disposition.
Approach & outcome
While some individuals had excellent track records as rainmakers, they also presented two key risks: the first was their ego, inhibiting their ability to attribute success to others or nurture the growth of others. Secondly, they were primarily motivated by money. In a market that saw global players setting up shop, the likelihood of them moving to the next biggest bidder was high.
Understanding the capabilities of the other candidates, we were in a position to recommend team configurations that would build a more stable and sustainable business.
