hiring methods... joking !
Semi-seriously, as a Systems Engineer, the idea of the `hiring process` is to have 100% of folks be out of the top 5%, which isn't sustainable across the industry.

You get ~50% of folks out of the top ~40% (with the difference being those who don't get the employment Wink | ;-) . Performance is generally determined by the system that the component is in. It's only when the system has few components that it can be the other way around.
