Which Background is Preferable for a Manager?
Maryam Bidmeshgipour, Student (Other), Malaysia, Member
Selecting candidates for a job is never easy. Certainly when we're talking about managers, considering they are going to play an important role in your organization...
What is the optimal manager profile...Which one do you prefer to hire for your projects?
1. A manager with a technical background (with engineering university degree), or
2. A manager with a management background (who has studied management)?
I'm more toward the administrative managers because they can lead better and assign every one to accomplish the job.
