N Nayab writing at Bright Hub about how to stop being a micro project leader. A sample:
A micro project head is involved too deeply in the project by imposing excessive controls, or monitoring work on a constant basis. The resultant micro project management harms the organization by holding up work, fostering mismanagement, and creating discontent among the workforce. Micro management leads to mismanagement, operating inefficiencies, and a serious loss of morale among the workforce, all harming the project in a big way.
I fully agree, of course!
