CMYA Micro or Macro Problem?
Natalia Bakilana asks: Is there a time when a project
manager should micromanage?
Jody Bitzer, PMP, says: It all depends on your definition
of micromanagement. I believe the term is taken to
mean “far more looking over one’s shoulder than is necessary or appropriate.” In which case, it is never good.
If you mean “detailed management,” I would not
consider that “micromanagement.” I’ve had situations
where I monitored a junior project manager every hour.
While that felt excessive—and actually unbearable—to
me, I felt I gave him as much freedom as he was capable
of. I would not call that micromanagement.
