If you work on your own, there's only a limited amount that you can do, however hard you work.

One of the most common ways of overcoming this limitation is to learn how to delegate your work to other people. If you do this well, you can quickly build a strong and successful team of people, well able to meet the demands that others place.

...to determine when delegation is appropriate:

  • Is there someone else who has (or can be given) the necessary information/ expertise to complete the task? 
  • Does the task provide an opportunity to grow and develop another person's skills?
  • Is this a task that will recur, in a similar form, in the future?
  • Do you have enough time to delegate the job effectively? 
  • Is this a task that I should delegate?
