Why Read This Report
High-performance software development organizations get that way because of their culture. One of the most important ways that frontline managers can help evolve a culture toward high performance is by hiring development professionals that are intrinsically motivated and creative by nature. It's not always easy to spot intrinsic motivation in a formal interview, but we've asked master developers and managers at a number of high-performance organizations what interview questions they ask and why. Their advice? First, determine the candidate's motivation profile regarding the desire for money, power, or recognition. After that, test the candidate's level of mastery and how well it fits the needs of the team you are assembling.
