5 levels of delegation - Deepstash

5 levels of delegation

  • Level 1: Do as I say - At this level, you give instructions. You already know exactly what you want and require the other person to stick to your specifications.
  • Level 2: Research and report back - When you need information to make a decision, you don't need to gather the information yourself. You can delegate the Research and ask for a Report.
  • Level 3: Research and make a recommendation - You are not looking for a regular report but actionable recommendations. This means researching, outlining options, and making the best recommendations possible with pros and cons.
  • Level 4: Decide and inform - At this level, the employee makes the decision by himself and then informs you.
  • Level 5: Act independently - At this level, there is total freedom. There's no need to report back. This is best for responsibilities that are not very important or that you are not best suited for.
