In management there are many different factors that can make you a good manager; planning, staffing, direction, controlling and organizing are key aspects that anyone should follow. Organizations run well with these aspects and without managers who know how to work with all of these aspects will do their job well, while those who are not as fluent and skilled as their fellow co-workers may not see success as quickly or ever like their counterparts.

In HSO there are always going to be many different departments that have functional leaders to look over and as that area gets larger you need more competent managers to handle the overflow of work.
