Do your business needs Micro Management?MAY 05, 2021 | BY KAVI CHOPRA | MANAGEMENT
Lets Go with a scenario:
There was an organisation which has 10 employees. The owner in that organisation doesn't trust the employees on the works. So what he does is, he always be near them and he was tracking each and every work they did. Eventually he can't able to focus on clients, marketing, statergies and improvement. He was convinced that he was good at managing the employees. One fine day, the owner got sick for a week, On those days of owner's absence, the employees doesn't know what works have to be done. As because, they got tamed only to work on the alloted tasks with the owner's presence. At the End their output is zero.
Do you need this situation? If no, we can see in detail about micro-management.
What is Micro Management?
If a person constantly watches their employee while completing the task, we call them as micro managers and the management is called micro management. This management has lots of dis-advantages but for few employees it has to be done. Before that, lets see more about micro-management.
Why do we do micro management?
Normally people worry about the work and the output of it. Each people has the tendency to complete the alotted work in their style. But because of micro managing the employee lacks in confidence and they loose their confidency in doing the work.

Is it necessary to do micro-management?
According to my prespective it depends on the employee's performance. There are two kinds of employee. One they will do their work on their own efficiently and the other we need to always watch them and boost so they will complete the work.
When to do micro-management? We always hire for the best employee. So for the first two months, we have to analyse their working method and then depending on their performance, we can prefer micro-management. But don't do micro-managing for all the employees. Then we will be lacking at creative ideas.
