Today I found some nice resources on the Internet which might be useful for you with regards to micromanagement. Reading this article is more like freshening my mind how we should manage people in our subordination and also get the feelings when you are in their position. And, in other side, in order to avoid your manager treats you like that again and again, perhaps this article could guide you to that direction.

However nobody likes to be micromanaged though, but sometimes micromanagement is needed in positive and limited way. This article helps us to resonate that. Of course, there are plenty of articles, essays or even books talk about this. They all have the same reason why we should avoid micromanaging and suggest to rely relationship on trust and delegation.

I paste here a quotation cited by Scott Berkun on his book, The Art of Project Management as a reminder.

“Trust is at the core of all meaningful relationships. Without trust there can be no giving, no bonding, no risk-taking.”

Terry Mizrahi, Director of Ecco (Education Center for Community Organizations)

So, what do you think of micromanagement based on your own experience?
