I once read the following and saved it away...

"Hire and promote first on the basis of integrity; second, motivation;
third, capacity; fourth, understanding; fifth, knowledge; and last and
least, experience. Without integrity, motivation is dangerous; without
motivation, capacity is impotent; without capacity, understanding is
limited; without understanding, knowledge is meaningless; without
knowledge, experience is blind. Experience is easy to provide and
quickly put to good use by people with all the other qualities."

Have no clue who's the origin.
