In a fast-paced corporate environment, it can be tempting for a manager to try to micromanage all the moving parts. But as the number of teams and complexity of the company grows, this course of action is likely to overwhelm an individual. To this end, a manager must realize when he or she should trust their subordinates to deliver and when it’s appropriate to take an active part in a project.

Most of the time, micromanaging comes from not understanding activities taking place. Employees are working but don't often communicate all the tasks. On the offset, tools like One2Team, Asana, Trello or Monday are all designed to give everyone insight into what is happening and when. A simple tool can help set and manage expectations and make meetings productive because of transparency.
