Assignment: Exercise 7-2: “In-Basket”
Delegating is an important aspect of supervisory effectiveness. Still, according to Rue and
Byars (2004) in Ch. 7 in Supervision: Key Link to Productivity (8th ed.), “failure to delegate is
probably the most frequent reason that supervisors fail in their jobs” (p. 117). Some
supervisors are reluctant to delegate at all; others do not quite know how to delegate, or they
are unsure regarding which tasks should be delegated. Recall the basic steps in the
delegation process from Ch. 7 in your text as you formulate your answers to this assignment.
• Resources: Ch. 7 (p. 126) in Supervision: Key Link to Productivity (8th ed.)
• Due Date: Day 7 [Individual] forum
• Follow the steps listed below to complete this 700-1,050-word assignment:
1. Read Exercise 7-2: “In Basket.”
2. Join the discussion thread to which your instructor has assigned you.
3. Discuss, with your assigned classmates, which items in this exercise should be
delegated and which should be acted upon.
4. Choose one of the items on which you and your assigned classmates agreed and one

5. Explain the rationale for the issue that was agreed upon by all classmates present.
6. Examine the issue on which you and your assigned classmates disagreed. Was your
attitude on this issue affected by your own unwillingness to delegate authority? Was
your attitude affected by your assessment that the task could not be delegated? Or was
your attitude affected by your inclination to delegate but impacted by the difficulty you
encountered in determining how the task could be delegated effectively? Explain your
answers.
7. Format the paper according to APA guidelines.
