“Aces in Their Places” – a memorable phrase for talent assignment and development

On a panel last week I heard and relished the phrase “Aces in their Places.” Jeff Firestone, a Vice President in the UPS Law Department, invoked it while he described UPS’s continuing efforts to put the best lawyer for the job in the right location and set of responsibilities.

A memorable phrase for a vital and ongoing effort, I thought I would pass it along (See my post of Sept. 9, 2009: IBM’s GC — “Legal is nothing if not a talent business.”.).
