For delegation to be effective, it is essential that responsibility be accompanied with necessary ______.


ANSWER

Authority


SOLUTION
The delegation of authority allows for concentration of time on more important activities in an organisation. Further, it provides a sense of responsibility, a chance to grow and exercise initiatives to whom the authority is delegated.

Interestingly, the accountability for the tasks still resides with the superiors. Effectively, delegation involves the distribution of authority for less important jobs to subordinates accompanied by no transfer of accountability.
