Joe agreed to build a custom motorcycle for Diane. The agreement includes a clause that “no assignment shall be valid without the consent of the other party.” Diane asked for that clause, because she feels Joe is uniquely qualified to take care of the special type of customizing she wants.
Joe now wants to delegate or assign his obligation to build a custom made motorcycle to Bill. Joe wants to be relieved of the responsibility for the timing or the quality of the work. See the assigned text readings, index, and glossary to help you learn this terminology.

b. Is Diane’s consent likely to be needed to make a delegation valid?
