Entrepreneurs need to give more attention and emphasis to establishing the organization as this will greatly support the firm's growth. This chapter points out how important it is to hire the right people for the company—people who would fully realize the goals and missions of the business and would possess the appropriate work ethics. These people should be able to learn and perform their assigned tasks well. Once these people are found, they have to be lead and managed through sharing the company's visions, allowing them to participate in the planning process, communicating, measuring, and assessing performance and other such indicators. Otherwise, the company need to learn how to distinguish those who do not meet expectations and perform the appropriate measures to deal with such people.
