You are able to find the bottlenecks and resolve them to move toward an even stronger DC function.

Finally, you are responsible for leading your teams, giving them clear working instructions and planning their activities to attain your targets. Your management skills enable your employees to grow in their role and within Action. By providing constructive feedback you ensure your teams are enthusiastic and inspired by the work they do.
