This verification process will make sure that the person knows exactly what needs to be done and will reduce the likelihood of the wrong thing being done. You must make sure that someone understands what needs to be done. The second step in effective delegation is that you must teach the why and how a task must be completed. Without your team members understanding how and why something in your business must be done, it runs the risk of the team member doing it the wrong way and potentially taking longer than necessary to do it.
