History[ edit ] Ancient understandings of authority trace back to Rome and draw later from Catholic Thomistic thought and other traditional understandings. In more modern terms, forms of authority include transitional authority exhibited in for example Cambodia public authority in the form of popular powerand, in more administrative terms, bureaucratic or managerial techniques. In terms of bureaucratic governance, one limitation of the governmental agents of the executive branch, as outlined by George A. Krause, is that they are not as close to the popular will as elected representatives are.
Goals Goals are specific accomplishments that must be accomplished in total, or in some combination, in order to achieve some larger, overall result preferred from the system, for example, the mission of an organization.
Going back to our reference to systems, goals are outputs from the system. Strategies or Activities These are the methods or processes required in total, or in some combination, to achieve the goals.
Going back to our reference to systems, strategies are processes in the system. Objectives Objectives are specific accomplishments that must be accomplished in total, or in some combination, to achieve the goals in the plan. Objectives are usually "milestones" along the way when implementing the strategies.

Tasks Particularly in small organizations, people are assigned various tasks required to implement the plan. If the scope of the plan is very small, tasks and activities are often essentially the same.
Resources and Budgets Resources include the people, materials, technologies, money, etc. The costs of these resources are often depicted in the form of a budget. Going back to our reference to systems, resources are input to the system.
Basic Overview of Typical Phases in Planning Whether the system is an organization, department, business, project, etc. The phases are carried out carefully or -- in some cases -- intuitively, for example, when planning a very small, straightforward effort. The complexity of the various phases and their duplication throughout the system depend on the scope of the system.
For example, in a large corporation, the following phases would be carried out in the corporate offices, in each division, in each department, in each group, etc. Different groups of planners might have different names for the following activities and groups them differently.
However, the nature of the activities and their general sequence remains the same. The following are typical phases in planning. They do not comprise the complete, ideal planning process.
Reference Overall Singular Purpose "Mission" or Desired Result from System During planning, planners have in mind consciously or unconsciously some overall purpose or result that the plan is to achieve.
Take Stock Outside and Inside the System This "taking stock" is always done to some extent, whether consciously or unconsciously. This scan usually involves considering various driving forces, or major influences, that might effect the organization.
During this analysis, planners also can use a variety of assessments, or methods to "measure" the health of systems.
Establish Goals Based on the analysis and alignment to the overall mission of the system, planners establish a set of goals that build on strengths to take advantage of opportunities, while building up weaknesses and warding off threats.
Establish Strategies to Reach Goals The particular strategies or methods to reach the goals chosen depend on matters of affordability, practicality and efficiency. Establish Objectives Along the Way to Achieving Goals Objectives are selected to be timely and indicative of progress toward goals.
Associate Responsibilities and Time Lines With Each Objective Responsibilities are assigned, including for implementation of the plan, and for achieving various goals and objectives.
Ideally, deadlines are set for meeting each responsibility. Write and Communicate a Plan Document The above information is organized and written in a document which is distributed around the system.
Acknowledge and Celebrate Accomplishment of the Plan This step is frequently forgotten, which can lead to increasing frustration and skepticism on the part of those people who are responsible to carry out the plan.
Guidelines to Ensure Successful Planning and Implementation A common failure in many kinds of planning is that the plan is never really implemented. Instead, all focus is on writing a plan document.
Too often, the plan sits collecting dust on a shelf. Therefore, most of the following guidelines help to ensure that the planning process is carried out completely and is implemented completely -- or, deviations from the intended plan are recognized and managed accordingly.
This is true no matter what type of system. When planning, get input from everyone who will responsible to carry out parts of the plan, along with representative from groups who will be effected by the plan.
Of course, people also should be involved if they will be responsible to review and authorize the plan. Key stakeholders employees, management, board members, funders, investor, customers, clients, etc.The 7 Levels of Delegation is a symmetrical model.
It works in both directions. Level 2 is similar to level 6, when viewed from the opposite perspective.
Effective Delegation. The hallmark of good supervision is effective delegation. Delegation is when supervisors give responsibility and authority to subordinates to complete a task, and let the subordinates figure out how the task can be accomplished. “Delegation of authority is the key to organization” Yes, Delegation of authority is a key to any organization.
A manager alone cannot perform all the tasks assigned to him. In order to meet the targets, the manager should delegate authority%(1).

The Google . Benefits of Delegation. In this post, the second in the series of four discussing delegation, I thought I’d encourage (maybe even convince) managers to consider the value of delegation by highlighting some of its advantages..
Let’s break it down a bit, there are advantages at the organisational level, the team level and for the individual manager!
