THE TECHNIQUES OF DELEGATING by Donald A. & Eleanor C. Laird


Email this review


A comprehensive and well-annotated book for managers of all kinds, major and minor, from salesmen and housewives to high powered company executives, tells when, where, how and why to delegate both work and authority. Even if many of its statements are fairly obvious the suggestions do not lose their basic values. It includes guides, tests and lists together with examples of the achievements of great and successful men who reached fame and fortune because of their ability to make -- and let -- others work for them. Andrew Carnegie said ""The secret of success is not in doing your own work but in picking the right man to do it."" For business libraries, for young business men, for those seasoned and sensible of lessening the pressure, for management executives who have already learned some of this art of ""delegating"".
