Delegation

  • Delegation is an administrative process of getting things done by others by giving them responsibility.
  • All important decisions are taken at top level by Board of Directors.
  • The execution is entrusted to Chief Executive.
  • The Chief Executive assigns to the work to departmental managers who in turn delegate the authority to their subordinates.
  • Every superior delegates the authority to subordinates for getting a particular work done.
  • The process goes to the level-~here actual work is executed.
  • The person who is made responsible for a particular work is given the requisite authority for getting it done.
  • There is a limit up to which a person can supervise the subordinates. When the number of subordinates increases beyond it then he will have to delegate his powers to others who perform supervision for him. A manager is not judged by the work he actually performs on his own but the work he gets done through others.
