Here are a couple of interesting articles I read on the management of employees and the use of the Bell curve. They challenged the theories that results are distributed in a normal way.

The key in business, and indeed, in life, is to find people who will enhance your strengths and help you through your weaknesses to make you, and your business achieve your full potential.
