Delegate responsibilities and accountability.
Steve Jobs created a system that allowed everyone to do their best work. In meetings, he would make an action list, and for each action, he defined a Directly Responsible Individual (DRI). They had full responsibility for accomplishing the task.
How to delegate effectively:
- Delegate to the right person.
Make sure he or she has the skills to accomplish the task.
- Provide clear instructions.
Make your instructions as specific as possible.
- Define outcomes.
Provide clear information on the desired task results.
- Ask if any clarification is needed.
