Posts filed under ‘Delagating’
In an earlier posting I touched on this topic but it’s worthwhile returning to it in some detail, because I believe it’s one of the primary causes of Delegation failure… (but maybe I’m just lying to you. How would you know?)
Consider this: If our ability to estimate how long a particular delegated task should take, with the resources on hand, was as good as it could be; and if we had all the project management tools we could afford and were perfectly competent in their usage; but… if the data relating to our progress towards completion was inaccurate – then we’re driving blind. In spite of our accurate estimation skills, and the best tools on the market, without accurate data – we’re going to fail.
Our ability to manage a project is directly proportional to the accuracy of the data we have at our disposal.
