SOLUTION
(a) A delegation of authority is a process in which the authority and powers are divided and shared amongst the subordinates. When the work of a manager gets beyond his capacity, there should be some system of sharing the work. This is how the delegation of authority becomes an important tool in organization function.
The importance of delegation can be justified by -
() The delegation, a manager is able to divide the work and allocate it to the subordinates. This helps in reducing his workload so that he can work on important areas such as - planning, business analysis etc.
With the reduction of load on superior, he can concentrate his energy on important and critical issues of concern. This way he is able to bring effectiveness in his work as well in the work unit. This efficiency helps a manager to prove his ability and skills in the best manner.
