Readers will learn how to: • determine which task to delegate • identify the right person for the job • assign the task • monitor progress and provide feedback • and evaluate performance  The book shows readers how to set the stage for excellent results, what to do if things go wrong, and how to ensure that all their people benefit from the experience. This is a quick, comprehensive course on an essential—and sometimes overlooked—management competency.
