A while ago I was challenged to form a team from scratch. My position at that time was that of Director of technological development, in a small company. As I progressed in my role and already with the armed team, I had problems with the burden that responsibilities and tasks that I had to carry, I understood that I had to start delegating some tasks with my team, I commented them and after investigating how we could Do we arrive at Delegation Poker. This work was done in support of a team.
How I did it
List all the responsibilities or decisions you were deciding alone, such as Holidays, Selection of technological tools, team building activities, selection of new team members, lunch time, telecommuting.
We review the seven levels of delegation of M3.0, distinguishing each of them.
We carry out the votes together with the team, topic by topic.
We visualize the results.
What went well
Make clear the restrictions of each topic, for example on vacation, there should be at least three team members so that our continuity would not be affected.
What didn't go so well
We did the exercise and did not share the results with the rest of the company.
There was a topic that after I was already voting I realized that I didn't want to delegate it and I had to take it out.
As a manager, be very sure that topics can be delegated, since it can be painful to delegate a topic and be completely returned. Also be patient with the team, since for everyone it means sharing responsibilities
Give us feedback on how we believe each issue was progressing with the current delegation level and adjust if necessary.
Holidays and other activities went well. The arrival and departure times had to be agreed again later. The team told me that he liked to be able to decide on these issues and little by little we tried to change it in the rest of the company.
