Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Delegation refers to the assignment of responsibility as well as authority to a delegate in most cases a subordinate by a manager to carry out given activities. As a manager goes on his daily activities, his scope of work expands and he is forced with more obligations that require his attention and time is well. Struggling to do everything by himself is impossible and taking such action leads to failure of the manager. Thus, managers are forced to delegate because they cannot do everything by themselves and meet all their targets without overlooking one responsibility. A manager cannot delegate all responsibilities presented to him and in most cases he chooses to complete the tricky activities that lacks the competent manpower in subordinate ranks to get the job done.
