The Managerial Skill of Delegating or "Don't Work Late, Delegate."
Emery, Rebecca A.
Delegation can be defined as the granting of authority to subordinates to operate within prescribed limits. When delegating, the manager assigns duties to, grants permission or authority to, and specifies the responsibilities of the subordinate. Successful delegation requires matching the requirements of the task with the abilities of the subordinate to whom the task is assigned. Delegated authority must be respected by the manager to be effective. Delegation gives managers time, involves subordinates in operations, provides for professional development of employees, and strengthens the administrative team. (Author/PGD)
