Understand the role and responsibilities and team size and use tailored examples to speak to those. Also at the VP level, a skill that’s critical to display is an ability to translate strategy into moving the needle

Partially correct on P&L. Get a feel for number of direct reports and each team size underneath. How will you allocate and what results will you expect out of each? It's all about how you can be effective while being 2 levels removed by setting up your system for visibility and management.

Congrats in advance! What industry? Does the VP have P&L responsibilities? What’s the company size?
