For an effective delegation...

  1. Match the Person to the Job: never delegate an important task to a person who has not performed that task satisfactorily in the past.
  2. Agree on what is to be Done.
  3. Explain How the Job Should Be Done: Explain your preferred approach or method of working.
  4. Have Him Feed It Back: the only way that you can be sure that the other person actually understands the job or assignment
  5. Set a Deadline.
  6. Manage By Exception.

  • Who can do this job better than me?
  • Who can do this job at a lower cost than me?
  • Can this activity be eliminated altogether?

  • For staff that has experience in the job (they know what they are doing) - use the effective, management by objectives delegation met...
