    Even with delegation of tasks and sometimes management by abdication there is barely enough time in the day to get work done.
    Are there not enough people in total to get everything done? It seems like if no, then hire more people or decrease the amount of work you have to do (or streamline how you are doing it). If yes, then create more organization layers to clarify task responsibility. You may want to try creating more, clearer subdivisions, and adding more managers in addition to your line manager.

    Absolutely. You give them freedom and you gain freedom.

    My questions are:

    -Ideally, what is the maximum number of people that someone should directly line manage?
    -Should I worry that things are delegated more and more?
    -Does anyone have any tips on managing a large number of people?
    Give up on efficiency that sucks on the long road

    Absolutely. You give them freedom and you gain freedom.
    Unfortunately I am not a position to hire and fire freely due to hierarchical control and budget constraints. I have been working on clearly defining sub-roles and responsibilities and trained the staff recently to do this. I am hoping that this will free me up a little.
