 THE GROUNDWORK OF
DELEGATION: Potential
benefits of delegation
 Can articulate the benefits of delegationI knew I had to delegate some simple tasks because it was impossible for me to perform them all. I also had to delegate who would present what, because I could not present each one as effectively as they could.By delegating the tasks, everything was completed for the event. The presenters appeared very knowledgeable about their presentation and topic because they attended workshop(s) about them in Austin.
 THE GROUNDWORK OF
DELEGATION: Potential
risks of delegation
 Can identify the potential risks and articulate how to navigate themThere are always risks in delegation, but I trusted the people I asked to get their work done eventually.I knew that all the deadlines may not be met, due to the nature of some of the individuals, but it would eventually be completed.
 THE GROUNDWORK OF
DELEGATION: How to
delegate
 Has a clear process for delegation I delegated the different topics and presentations based on who attended those workshops at the convention.
This was very logical and simple.
 THE PROCESS OF
DELEGATION: Explain
the need for delegation
 Clearly explains reason for delegating tasks, remains positive and makes others aware of how they will benefit from facilitating
and implementing the task
 Without delegating tasks, I would not have had enough time to complete everything. The people I asked for help understood the reasons for being selected for their particular tasks.
Even with the simplest of tasks like  getting food, we all understood that I could not do everything, so they were very willing to help.
 THE PROCESS OF
DELEGATION: Set
objectives that define
responsibility, level of
authority, and deadlines
 Assigns task with objectives that clearly state the end result the designee is responsible for achieving by a specific due date; level
of authority for each
task is also clearly defined
It was stated before and after convention that we had the goal of holding workshops about the convention, and that I would be in charge of the majority of the planning. The level of authority generally followed the QC hierarchy. Deadlines were established after returning back to school. Emails were also sent with clear instructions.This objective was performed successfully.
 THE PROCESS OF
DELEGATION: Develop a
plan
 Assigns tasks and identifies resources needed to achieve objectives and informs others of designee’s new responsibilitiesBy planning with Nessa, I noted the resources I needed. I only needed to delegate in order to get food for the events. They all knew their topics and were free to talk about anything relating to their topic.The plan was very simple, and no problems occurred. 
 THE PROCESS OF
DELEGATION: Establish
timelines with checkpoints
and accountability
 Assigns tasks with clearly written timeline set in place, identifies process of check points and follows up periodically on progress
made
I clearly stated when the presentations and notes were due in an email and in person. The presenters understood that it was up to them to perform their task.It would have been much more effective if I had established a punishment system for missing a deadline.
 AFTER DELEGATION:
Review the project
 Looks at the project in a timely manner, provides clear feedback to the designee, and rewards the designee.I received some feedback from the presenters and attendants. They were all positive.Delegation worked decently because two presenters did not present and others had to cover for them. Without that problem, delegation helped lead to the success of the event.
