"When applying for a position as a director, be prepared to have your leadership skills and judgement tested by many case studies. These scenarios help employers understand what kind of leader you will be for a team or department at their company, so confidence, quick thinking, and examples of how you have fixed similar problems in the past will be highly advantageous towards receiving an offer."
What would you do if a CIO told you not to call him again and not to waste the time of anyone in the company.
This is a tough one as it is a realistic CA situation. What they want to hear is that you would do your research, approach the right mid-managers with strong value propositions then recruit these people as your coaches to take you back to the CIO with a compelling proposition. Truth is this is all hot air :-)
