6 levels of task delegation by Harvey Sherman
Some time ago, the topic of effective task delegation appeared on our blog. We wrote why delegating tasks and responsibilities to other people is important, what are its benefits and how to do it effectively. The purpose of cooperation with a business coach may be precisely to develop the delegation competences of managers, leaders or managers in the company. Today we write about various variants of delegating tasks in the company. Harvey Sherman has developed a system of 6 levels of task delegation. Depending on how you want to have control over the delegated task, you can choose one of the six developed levels to control the result. Each of them affects control and execution time differently and may be appropriate for a specific task or employee. Over time, you can gradually increase the level of delegation of tasks in your organization, which translates into increasing team efficiency and saving time. Please note that the following levels of delegation apply to the majority of standardly managed organizations and work organization methods. With turquoise organizations, this model looks completely different and the most common level of delegation in turquoise organizations is level six.
