Перечитал главу о делегировании и отметил две вещи:
Always allow a sufficient buffer to give you time to chase the work if it is late without throwing you into an emergency situation. You need also to make sure that you have left yourself adequate time to process your share of the work when it is returned to you.
Always be quite clear about what you want done and by when. Make it clear that you expect the deadline to be met.
