Skills Required for Supervisory Management

1. Technical Skills (100%): Technical skills are crucial in supervisory management, representing 60% of the skill set. Supervisory managers must have a strong understanding of technical competencies to effectively oversee tasks, manage operations, and ensure the smooth functioning of day-to-day activities within their departments.

2. Human Skills (100%): Human skills are of significant importance, constituting 30% of the skill set. Supervisory managers need to excel in human skills to communicate effectively, motivate their teams, and create a collaborative work environment that enhances team performance and success.

3. Conceptual Skills (50%): While less emphasized, conceptual skills make up 10% of the skill set. Supervisory managers benefit from a basic understanding of organizational goals and strategies to align their team's efforts with the organization's objectives and contribute to the department's overall success.
