Which of the following is not an element of delegation?


ANSWER

Informal organisation


SOLUTION

Delegation involves following three elements:

1. Assignment of Responsibility:

The first step in delegation is the assignment of work or duty to the subordinate i.e. delegation of authority. The superior asks his subordinate to perform a particular task in a given period of time. It is the description of the role assigned to the subordinate. Duties in terms of functions or tasks to be performed constitute the basis of delegation process.

2. Grant of Authority:

The grant of authority is the second element of delegation. The delegator grants authority to the subordinates so that the assigned task is accomplished. The delegation of responsibility with authority is meaningless. The subordinate can only accomplish the work when he has the authority required for completing that task.

3. Creation of Accountability:

Accountability is the obligation of a subordinate to perform the duties assigned to him. The delegation creates an obligation on the subordinate to accomplish the task assigned to him by the superior. When a work is assigned and authority is delegated then the accountability is the by-product of this process.
