Why don't managers delegate more effectively?

Wally Bock, Three Star Management Blog, asks the question, "Why don't managers delegate more?"  He answers this by noting that they've "diiscovered the hard way that delegating is not always the best way to assign work. Many managers don't delegate at all because they tried it and got burned." Here are some reasons why:

  • They don't know how to figure out when delegating is the best choice.
  • They don't know how to act after they delegate.
  • They don’t' understand that delegation is a goal, not a default strategy.

By taking a closer look at why delegation may not be their strong suit, managers can learn how to move beyond the fears of delegation and start doing it effectively.
