Management By Delegation
Michael D. Moore , Entrepreneur, United States

The process of managing people to get things done, executing, is based on the skill and techniques of delegating work and managing for results.

Most managers over-look the importance of basis skills for planning projects and assignments, delegating the work effectively and managing the activities to a successful conclusion. Many times the focus of attention is on the wrong things.

Effective delegation requires careful planning, crystal clear communication of the "What, How & When" of assignments and tracking activities. The manager must create an urgency I call the "Velocity of Execution." Careful attention to the details and processes here will pay big dividends. Very little training surrounding the skills for effective delegation take place. The lack of quality experience in managing for results is a factor in lower productivity.

My experience indicates that business units that are high-performance and high-productivity are characterized my several key elements:

1. A manager who is an effective communicator of the vision, mission and responsibilities of the team and each member. Someone who sets high-standards and holds people accountable.

2. A business unit made up of people who are well trained, skilled at their jobs and capable of effective teamwork.

3. A business unit culture of performance and formal and informal mentoring.

Put these together and you have a top performing team
