DELEGATING EFFECTIVELY By: Muhammad Aleem Habib
What is Delegation? Delegation means giving someone else the responsibility and authority to act on your behalf.
Delegation Delegation consists of these three factors: Assign. of work + Assign. of Responsibility + Assign. of Authority. Without the last two factors, delegation is unsuccessful because of these: 1. the delegate will do the job just for fun, without responsibility spirit; or 2. the delegate will not have authorities to carry out the job. He will meet difficulties and the job will be accomplished not as expected.
