If the job is on track, and on schedule, managing by exception means that the person does not have to report back to you.
If you don’t hear from him, you can assume that everything is going well. The individual only has to report back to you when an exception occurs and there is a problem with getting the job done on time, to the agreed upon level of quality.
Without the ability to delegate effectively, it is impossible for you to advance in management to higher positions of responsibility.
Learning how to delegate is not only about maximizing your own productivity and value; it is also about maximizing the productivity of your staff. Your job as a manager is to get the highest return on the company’s investment in people.
