Assign one person to one task


One task, one employee

If you assign two or more people to do one task it means that this task is not correctly set. There may be exceptions but in most cases the "finite task" can be done by one executor at a time. When you delegate a task "Make product presentation" and assign John, Paul and Bill to organize everything, this task has much more chances not to be done the way you want it to.

Delegation hint

Each time you think of delegating a task to more than one employee, it is a hint for you that this task should be broken down to several subtasks. So the task "Make product presentation" becomes a 'task group' and contains the tasks "Write product description, main features and benefits" assigned to John, "Take pictures of the product" assigned to Bill and "Create presentation document in PDF format" assigned to Paul. It will take you a couple of minutes more, but will save your team from possible procrastination.

Action plan

  1. Start your team management software
  2. Create a task group
  3. Create tasks within this task group
  4. Assign each task to only one employee
