    I have just read the book again. I read it when I became Manager and started managing people. I decided to read this again after 3 years to know if I am missing on anything. Book helped me highlight multiple areas of improvement for me which i am going to focus on going forward while I go ahead and delegate work more effectively. The books goes on to suggest why one should delegate, what (& what not) to delegate, how to delegate and other Do's and Don'ts. It's a must read book for every manager.

    Another good book on the series. Step by step tips and hints, backed by some good if somewhat simplistic examples. Concise but informative.

You should make others work and contribute to the over all growth then only you can set yourself as an example to your peers and direct reports.

    The book quickly walks you through the fundamentals of establishing a productive environment, assigning the right work to the right people, conducting an effective hand-off meeting and monitoring without micromanaging. However I expected more from Harvard Business school press on such an important management topic. It is concise, practical, but not particularly imaginative.

    This helped me build on a leadership training I am working to develop. The content is very easy to read but at times a bit too simplistic.

    Delegating is charging somebody with a specific task to do at a specified time and according to required specifications; and investing them with full authority to see the task through.

Delegation is therefore, an indispensable managerial skill-though often neglected or overlooked- that every top executive should have. This book claims to give you the right access to delegating tasks, and how to lay the necessary groundwork for a successful delegation. It will ultimately assist you in determining the tasks that can be delegated, and to ovesee their implementation. Though the process of delegating work may require some practice or training, the rewards or the dividends are worth every minute expended in trying to master this valuable skill. In order to prompt the reader to acquire and hone the basics of delegation, the writer expounds the objectives of delegation in his typically readable and clear style. Then, he enumerates the benefits executives can reap from it. All of which is unfolded with the experience, persuasiveness, and in a style worthy of Thomas L. Brown who published hundreds of articles and several groundbreaking books on this subject.

    This is a short and very informative book about delegation. As anyone who is working in any type of organization knows, he/she cannot do all the things that call for successful execution. It really takes a team. However, for the team members to get the necessary skills they need to be successful and grow in their respective organization they must learn and experience more than what their job entails. This book by Harvard Business Press teaches readers on how to properly delegate tasks. There are t This is a short and very informative book about delegation.

However, for the team members to get the necessary skills they need to be successful and grow in their respective organization they must learn and experience more than what their job entails. This book by Harvard Business Press teaches readers on how to properly delegate tasks. There are things a team leader or manager must consider before he/she can assign tasks to his subordinate. I would recommend this book to any managers who want to get tips and advices quickly. Even if you are not a manager in a traditional sense of the word, you can benefit from this book if you are a parent. Parents will easily find the tips here very helpful especially when they are asking their kids to do something.

    THIS EBOOK IS A PRE-PUBLISH DATE VERSION, PROVIDED FOC FOR A CANDID REVIEW This is like other Harvard Business Review Press 20 minute books; No Nonsense, common sense and practical. The guidance is told in straight forward language and enables a new manager to develop strategies of their own. It's a starting place, or a reminder, but not very pragmatic. I would have liked to see more on the subject of delegating to the right people, matching the task to the expected growth of the individual.

    كتاب جيد ومختصر تحدث فيه الكاتب عن التفويض بخطواته منذ اللحظة التي تبدأ بها بالتفكير بتفويض الأعمال الى أخر مرحلة وهي الرقابة والتغذية الراجعة.. الكتاب جيد، لم يعجبني فيه أخر موضوع وهو المراقبة حيث أثر الكاتب الحديث على نقاط جانبية كحل المشكلات والتفويض العكسي وغيرها من المواضيع واغفل خطوات المراقبة ومتابعة العمل ومعرفة تقدمه خصوصا مع الأعمال التي تمتد لما يزيد عن الشهر. ففي هذه المشاريع يجب أن تكون هناك معايير لمراقبة تقدم العمل بشكل أوضح.

    It was okay, but a bit light for HBR. Seems like this was originally a blog post turned into a book for monetization purposes and it wasn't work the money. It was okay, but a bit light for HBR.

    Nothing groundbreaking. That is to be expected as most business activitiy is not "rocket surgery". A solid overview that offers helpful reminders. Nothing groundbreaking. That is to be expected as most business activitiy is not "rocket surgery". A solid overview that offers helpful reminders.
