Read the Chapter 8 Practical Action article “When Should You Delegate and When Not? How Managers Get More Done” on p. 262.
Then write an essay addressing all six of the Delegate… and Don’t delegate… guidelines in the article. Give examples of each type of task you should or should not delegate, and why. Also comment on the last paragraph, Your Call. What are some of the reasons you might not be good at delegating, and what can you do to improve your delegation skills? Your assignment should be 2-3 pages long (excluding cover page, attachments, etc.), double-spaced, using 12-point font and 1-inch margins.
Keep in mind that, while there are no “absolutely correct” answers for these questions, this is not an opportunity for opinion alone. Grading will reflect your reasoning and critical thinking skills, your ability to integrate what you have assimilated from material presented in the textbook and other learning materials, the clarity of your response and its appearance.
Please remember that, if your paper integrates information from published sources and/or you build on the work of others, you must be careful not to plagiarize.
