Recovered from Evernote, notes I made an eon ago:
1. Set the job parameters
2. Select your delegate
3. Explain the work
4. Advise the rest of the team
5. Follow up on check points/deadlines regularly
6. Assess the completed work – don’t expect it to be perfect straight off
In addition, make sure you set realistic deadlines and diarise key dates with the delegate and that they understand why certain deadlines need to be met. Finally, make yourself available to answer any questions that may arise..
