The most crucial thing in delegation is to give the right work to the right people. You should also provide the necessary resources for them to carry out the work.

The most crucial thing in delegation is to give the right work to the right people. You should also provide the necessary resources for them to carry out the work. This book will be an excellent choice to refresh your concepts if you are a company's manager or CEO or anyone who manages a group of people. "Despite the benefits to all involved, many managers still feel uneasy about delegating. For instance, you might fear that by assigning your work to others, you abdicate responsibility and lose control because you relinquished day to day over site or pressed for time; you might like to do the job yourself rather than teach someone else how to do it. If this is your first leadership role, you might be reluctant to delegate the types of tasks that gave you your star power, such as mentoring junior employees."

    Clear and concise. No bullshitting around.. like narrating some stories, anecdotes, setting premises defining the problem and presenting a solution. Someone in a managerial role knows the works needs to be done, given limited time it cant be done buy him alone.. the Solution ? Delegate the work. This book provides sort of manual how you 1. Delegate 2. Choose who to delegate 3. What to delegate 4. How to track progress/follow up 5. and much more.

    This felt more like an article than a book, and I didn't think it was practical enough. This felt more like an article than a book, and I didn't think it was practical enough.

    A concise break down of delegation and a good thing to listen to for those who have direct reports but can't seem to get caught up. A concise break down of delegation and a good thing to listen to for those who have direct reports but can't seem to get caught up.

    Delegation of work from Harvard Business Review is not very lucid and practical, but we can utilize this short work for academic purposes.
