Studies indicate that most people say they “mean to” delegate, and know they need to delegate but they simply don’t understand how to do so effectively. Furthermore, they do not understand the role delegation plays in effective time management. When time is not well managed, productivity drops. Regardless of your role, there will be times when you will be asked to delegate … or times when you want or need to delegate.
