Question :: Initiative instead of experience..?

Companies are obsessed with resumes, constituents rely on credibility, and one’s past experiences are regarded as the best indication of future success. After all, what beats a great track record?

However, the creative world and especially the history of breakthrough ideas suggest that initiative, not experience, is the best indicator of future achievement. Ideas require bold initiative to gain traction. We should think differently about the criteria we look for as we hire new employees and select new leaders.
Interesting article on Behance.com that's worth checking out. I think we need to look for initiative in the church/ areas of social activism instead of experience. What do you think?
