What are the ingredients of success and why is this important? Recently Sam Ovens from Consulting Accelerator has done a lot of job interviews. He is looking for talented and hardworking people, to solve the challenging tasks they have at consulting.com. Sam Ovens is trying to determine if they are hard working or not on a phone call that takes 30 minutes. This is hard. So what he is trying to figure out is about their input and output.

This is what most people ask about when they are interviewing for future employees. They are very caught up with the outcome only. The filter that match the output. The problem about only focusing on output is that it is very easy to lie about. Sam Ovens started with asking only about output and then he watched a documentary about the best chefs in the world.

He found out that the thing that created the best chefs in the world, was the ones who could acquire the best ingredients. So, the ingredients are the input and the output are the food. Sam was thinking about the software engineering world saying, “garbage in, garbage out”. No matter what you have to have a nice input, others it is impossible to get a good output.


Social Networks of Famous Geniuses by Dean Keith Simonton

A big research shows that geniuses is mad through inputs. So as an example, is Newton: he found out that Newton had 14 main inputs. One important thing was that “he was on the shoulders of geniuses” – and Einstein’s biggest influence was Newton.

After all this Sam Ovens started to ask about inputs instead of outputs. So, for example mentors, books, courses, friends, network, the 5 people you spend the most time with. This is what shapes the person intelligence. Now Sam Ovens from Consulting Accelerator started asking people “who is you biggest idol”, “who has influenced you”, etc. Because this would show him who has a very good input. “what books has taught you the most about X”. Sam’s output is not the function off how he was born, but it is actually because of his input. Books, influences, etc. It could also be bloggers, youtubers, articles, academics papers. It is very hard to interview about outputs, because it is very easy to lie about. Inputs on the other hand is hard. It is hard to make a lie up about some person who influenced you and how.

Now if you are hiring people you should think about starting to ask input questions. If you input is social media, you have very big problems. Social media is one of the worst inputs you can get. If your input is shit, then your output will be the same.


So the question is:

· Who are your mentors?

· What book have you read?

· Who is the 5 people that you spend most time with?

· What is your favorite course?
