This VRIO Matrix Model is an abbreviation for a four-question framework focusing on value, rarity, imitability, and organization, which are the criteria used to assess an organization's resources and capabilities. You can use a decision tree to help map the outcomes of your probe based on whether or not a resource meets the criteria. With a VRIO framework in place, Google could take a completely new approach to human capital management, making decisions based on massive amounts of objective data. For example, Google's People Operations team determined what qualities make a good manager. This was determined using data from surveys, performance evaluations, and great-manager nominations.
