"Handing off projects is essential in today's fast-paced work world. But, it an be a nerve-wracking task.


Does the new person understand what needs to get done? Will she follow through on what she's promised to do? Whether you are asking a peer or a subordinate to take over for you, use a checklist to be sure you are both on the same page.


Include questions such as, "What do you understand the priorities to be?" and "What do you need from me to be successful?"
