Delegating Resources & Tools

Effective delegation involves achieving the correct balance between effective control of work and letting people get on with jobs in their own way.  Use this as a guide to help you determine where and how you can delegate some of your tasks and projects to keep your time focused, build staff capacity, and otherwise strengthen the management of your organization. This article examines the benefits of delegation, common reasons why delegation is avoided, and what should not be delegated.

Additional TREC Tools to Assist in Delegation
TREC Delegation Worksheet  provides guidance on how to successfully delegate a particular task, walking you through a series of steps to thoughtfully set up a successful delegation.

TREC Task Analysis Chart assists in assessing which tasks you can delegate.
