Donna Gennett, Ph.D., helped security industry professionals learn how to effectively delegate tasks at a seminar hosted by Women in Security Electronics (WISE) at ASIS International 2005â€™s 51st Annual Seminar and Exhibits in Orlando in September. WISE is a non-profit professional networking organization focused on promoting women in the security industry through education, mentoring, networking and industry exposure. Gennettâ€™s presentation was based on her published book, If You Want It Done Right, You Donâ€™t Have to Do It Yourself, in which she examines six steps involved in the power of effective delegation. Those include: preparing beforehand; clearly defining the task to be completed; clearly outlining the time frame within which the task must be completed; defining the level of authority to use in accomplishing the task; identifying checkpoints for reviewing the progress; and holding a debriefing session afterwards.
