The Vice-President of the Services division stresses to you that "This department hasn't had a good manager in years.

    * A description of the types of characteristics and experience that you will look for in the candidate. Be specific, include the various management functions and roles that this individual must have experience with as well as the skills they must possess to be effective.

    Remember to use the Library or other Web resources to support your argument. Be sure to cite your sources using the correct standard of APA.
