Talent Acquisition and Management:

Marc Andreessen post on hiring and management of executives is worth the read.

“Being a startup executive is not an easy job. The rewards are substantial -- the ability to contribute directly to the startups's success; the latitude to build and run an organization according to her own theories and principles; and a meaningful equity stake that can lead to personal financial independence if the startup succeeds -- but the responsibilities are demanding and intense.”

I have written before on the need to let go and bring in people whose behavior patterns fit well into your organization. Marc’s post is very clear about the steps required to evaluate the process of Talent Acquisition and Management!
