Reference #194: The First 90 Days
Delegation is important at all level of leadership. The keys to effective leadership remains much the same: building a team you can trust, setting goals and metrics to measure progress, connecting high-level goal is to an individual's responsibilities, and reinforcing those through process.
However, what you delegate — the level of delegation — depends on the size of organisation you lead.
For a team of five, delegating specific tasks is appropriate.
When leading fifty, you may delegate projects and processes.
At five hundred, you may need to delegate responsibility for specific products or platforms.
When leading five thousand people, you may need to delegate to your direct reports entire businesses.
