My small Data Science team is hiring a new manager. I have some skill at evaluating the technical abilities of a candidate, but very little in evaluating their management abilities.
In Data Science technical interviews I don’t think one needs a picture of what domain a person works in or what the size of their team was etc. to evaluate their technical and mathematical abilities and their intelligence. Is the same true of a manager? Is so, what are the underlying dimensions of management ability that I should be trying to uncover and evaluate?
