If at first you succeed, don't try again

OK, so the title of this post is an exaggeration, but Guy Kawasaki makes a good point about why we shouldn't use a person's past success as an entrepreneur to predict his/her future success. I've often wondered whether the same could be said for CEOs or other high-paid executives. I wish someone would do (or, if it's already been done, point me to the results of) a study comparing the success of companies that hire a star CEO versus those that hire an untested CEO.
