When asking job candidates interview questions about how they might handle certain situations or operating conditions, do you get a tactical response or a strategic answer? Perhaps if the candidate focuses mostly on tactics, you would consider them for different roles than if they provide more strategic responses.
Your organization has acquired multiple facilities over the course of recent years and the question of centralized AR processing hits the table. Are you thinking about development of a strategic plan or are you speculating about how billing data will be transferred (and the multitude of other tactical challenges inherent in this initiative)? Unfortunately, businesses often “skip” strategic thinking and planning when addressing key opportunities. This often leads to the conclusion that the original idea was a bad one or that people have underperformed when the reality was simply that an absence of strategy caused a great idea to fail implementation.
