As managers we are required to make improvements all the time. It all starts with understanding your processes or getting clear about how the work gets done.

This is something you can’t delegate. It’s your job to understand the processes, although it isn’t your job to actually do the work itself. For example, if you run a call centre, you must know how the work is done: how calls are routed, how your people answer the telephone, the systems they use to service the customer, which other teams are involved later in the process, etc. However, your knowledge isn’t so that you can do the job when the phones are busy, it’s so that you can review the process and make it better (i.e. faster, cheaper and higher quality).
