Title: Candidate Q&A - Director of Programming 2016
Post by: kjayers on September 10, 2015, 09:55:27 pm
This thread is for questions and answers for the candidates for the 2016 Director of Programming of Altonimbus Entertainment.

Please remember the following when participating in the Q&A threads. The normal forum code of conduct (https://www.kumoricon.org/forums/index.php?topic=11025.0) applies, except:

There is a partial exemption to the rule that forum discussion cannot be about a person. You may incorporate personal comments, including praise or criticism, into your election questions and answers, and ensuing discussion, but only regarding candidates who are running for a position, or about another person if it is directly entangled with an issue germane to the outcome of the election. In so doing, you must still exercise standard courtesy, and refrain from profanity, disruption of the discussion, excessive vitriol, and irrelevant comments. Please keep in mind that there will be an opportunity for spoken comments at the elections meeting.

In most departments, the director does not need to be a subject matter expert; instead, the department needs to be led by a people-manager who hires subject matter experts.


What resources have you used to develop your managerial style?  What should your direct reports expect from you as a supervisor?

What are your plans for dealing with panelists who no-show or cancel last minute?
