Effective Delegation

I realise that one thing I need to learn, and learn fast is how to effectively delegate responsibilities to others. It is truly an art. How to pick someone for a task such that the probability of it's successful completion are upped significantly. Firstly, I think I need to be confident that I can trust someone with a certain task, and once that is done, how to choose that someone such that there is enough internal motivation for that person to run that task to completion.

Delegation solves a lot of problems if done well.

Some questions:
[1] What to delegate.
[2] When to delegate.
[3] Whom to delegate to.
[4] How much to delegate.
[5] How to create/detect internal motivation for effective delegation.
