    I would like to know how to delegate better and asisgning new supervisor to teams.

    How many employees can I oversee?
    When do I need to divide a team and assign a supervisor?

    There are different techniques which also depend on the organizational structure as a whole.

    For instance, a team may have a “senior” expert in their field, a team leader, a supervisor, a department leader, a branch manager…

    I’ve also worked with organizations that allocate a single expert to a project. Think of consultancies or social media agencies.

    Then I’ve worked with factories or engineering companies, where a project is comprised of experts across a large set of skills, with niche professionals jumping between multiple teams.

    Jeff Bezos has shared his “Two-Pizza rule”, stating that a team is too large if they can feed themselves at the room with two large pizzas. Depending on how you look at this, I’d venture 7 to 10 people should suffice.

    In project management, 6 to 8 subordinates is optimal for less experienced managers. Professional ones, especially having worked with this particular team for at least a year, can handle 10 to 12 subordinates effectively.

    Your mileage may vary, but this should be a good starting point.

    A decent supervisor shares her intelligence, information and involvement with the employees. This likewise reinforces the bond and the trust between them. The workers ought not delay in moving toward the chief with their concerns. online dissertation editing service
