The third unit is the Administrative Department, in chair Apple of all administrative functions, from contracting and procurement, to inventory management Apple t and control, to human resources, strategic planning, accounting and finance, marketing, technology, transportation, and others. In addition to these units that are required to be in the APPLE offices at Kava, the company will also need a legal office to help negotiate the myriad new requirements for establishing businesses, business relationships, real estate law, production law, and employment law for doing business on Kava.
APPLE will need to establish a number of Standard Operating Procedures for its operations on Kava.

The overarching goal, however, will be to assure that upward mobility opportunities are provided to the local Kava staff to advance through the company as they demonstrate their abilities, skills, and commitment to the ethical and operational standard established by APPLE .
In addition, the staff temporarily assigned from APPLE operations stateside will work to Apple their with the Human Resources Division to develop recruiting plans to work for the talent required of the company for its efforts on Kava. In establishing the plans, the team will "pinpoint what needs to decided, identify all possible courses of action, list the pros and cons, make our choice and take action, and then evaluate the outcome (WSJ,...
