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.

Format the paper according to APA guidelines. • Post as an attachment.

MGT 210 Week 3 Checkpoint - Incident 6-2 What Should I Do Next Carpenters are often told to “measure twice, and cut once.” Spending adequate time on strategy and planning is like measuring, and implementing the plan is like cutting. Extra time and effort during the planning stage are crucial if you want to avoid common problems later on. As a supervisor, you may be called upon to develop a plan without being given specific guidelines. This CheckPoint offers you an opportunity to determine what information a supervisor would need in order to create a plan for upper management and then to outline how you would prepare the plan. • Resources: Ch. 6 (pp. 89-108) in Supervision: Key Link to Productivity (8th ed.) • Due Date: Day 4 [Individual] forum • Read Incident 6-2: What Should I Do Next? • Answer, in 200-300 words, the three questions on p. 108 following this incident.

MGT 210 Week 4 Checkpoint - Work Team Concepts Because a work group can accomplish more than an individual can, many organizations create formal teams to complete designated work assignments. In order for the work groups to be as productive as possible, individual team members as well as supervisors and leaders should be aware of group norms and behaviors that can sometimes create obstacles for the teams. In this CheckPoint, you will have an opportunity to reflect on your discussion experience with assigned classmates and then to analyze that experience in terms of your reading regarding work teams.

MGT 210 Week 5 Assignment - Exercise 10-2 OJT According to Rue and Byars (2004), “orientation is concerned with introducing the new employee to the organization and the job” (p. 177). On the other hand, “training involves the acquisition of skills, concepts, rules, or attitudes by employees in order to increase their performance” (p. 178). Both orientation and training programs are essential in a well-run organization. • Resources: Ch. 10 (p. 184) in Supervision: Key Link to Productivity (8th ed.) • Due Date: Day 7 [Individual] forum • Review Exercise 10-2:OJT. • Follow the assignment instructions at the end of this exercise on p. 184. • Format the 1,400-1,750-word assignment, which will be included in your final project for the section on Determining Effective Orientation and Training Methods, following APA guidelines. • Post the assignment as an attachment.

MGT 210 Week 7 Checkpoint - Incident 14-1 No Extra Effort Not all workers are motivated by the same rewards.

This CheckPoint offers an example of a group of employees that is not motivated and asks how you—as a supervisor—might improve the situation. • Resources: Ch. 14 (p. 255) in Supervision: Key Link to Productivity (8th ed.) • Due Date: Day 4 [Individual] forum
