I've listened to the casts on instilling a sense of urgency in your team.
Part of my team are drillers, who are in charge of a drill rig each, with one drillers offsider whose job it is to do anything the driller requires to get the job done(mostly manual labour stuff)
Lets say I go by the guidance of asking one of my drillers to have 10 holes drilled by COB today and report it in when done.
If you assign a deliverable with a deadline to 1 person only, if they're a leader of a person/small group.
In this example, how does that sense of urgency tranfer to his offsider/group and not just him?
