Challenge:

 

Planning, Delegation and Control are important core competencies of a manager.

Planning, Delegation and Control are important core competencies of a manager.

With planning and delegation, everything seems to be clear: plan, delegate and start waiting for news about achieved results! However, experienced managers will see at least irony in the previous sentence, if not outright sarcasm. Why is it?

First of all, getting detailed clarity about the plans is not easy even for yourself.

Secondly, once the plan is formulated, it is much more difficult to convey all the nuances to colleagues.

However, the driver's challenges do not end there. Which doer lacks resources? Scheduled jobs overlap? Is there a wrong sequence of jobs scheduled somewhere? Managers most often find out about it when the implementation of plans has started. And how to control the work progress?

The solution to these challenges can be sought through more nuanced questions. How does a person think? How to communicate works and plans according to the thinking mechanisms of the doers? How to delegate more effectively? How to define measurable goals? How to define goals in conditions of gradual development, but how - in conditions of rapid development? How to control the execution of plans? How to implement these steps also in remote work conditions?

Answers to these and other questions - in the Kārlis Apkalns seminar "Effective leader #2. Visual Planning, Delegation, Control”.
