Manager Accountability

Enabling Managers to be accountable

DP Business Transformation enables your managers to be accountable.

In cooperation with your team, we analyse data and set relevant, understandable and attainable KPI’s so that your managers welcome and embrace continuous realistic improvement in their departments.

Why should you delegate?

A well-defined management structure ensures that accountability is clearly specified and that more time is spent on moving forwards instead of standing still.

You need to delegate to create space for yourself to develop strategic plans and to empower your Managers — letting go of the details and passing control onto your Managers will allow you to lead more effectively.

More importantly, it cements the process of change within the structure of the organisation.

In order to do this, you can help them by ensuring that they understand:

Selecting the right people

  • Are they the right person to embrace change?
  • Are they equipped to succeed?
  • Are they disciplined to carry out their objectives?
  • What is expected of them?
  • Do they know or understand what may lie next for them?
  • What are they accountable for:
    profits / costs / operational processes?

Evaluating results

  • How are these ‘Accountabilities’ measured?
  • How is the manager empowered to want to understand these metrics?
  • What can they do to improve performance against the metrics?
  • Do they know what others in their team rely on?
  • Can they actually make decisions?

Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
