In several recent articles and Blogs, I keep see a recurring theme regarding an advantage to the Manager who delegates of saving his or her time. Is that really what effective delegation is about? I really don’t think so. Delegation is a core competency of managers and Executive who are expected to reach important business objectives by executing projected and assignments. Delegation is a primary responsibility for anyone who manages a group of people. It is not a convenience for the manager to save them a little time.
A really successful manager or executive “delegates work assignments“ because that process is the tool they must use to coordinate the efforts of a group of employees around the action steps of a project plan. The majority of a managers job functions are to plan projects or assignments, delegate specific action assignments and manage the execution of the Plan.
