Title: Micromanagement
Composer: David Pocknee
Instrumentation: two guitarists and variable ensemble
Duration: 20 minutes
Description: Micromanagement is a management style typified by an excessive control of, and attention to, minor details. Micromanagement also frequently involves requests for unnecessary and overly detailed reports. A micromanager tends to require constant and detailed performance feedback and tends to be excessively focused on procedural trivia (often in detail greater than they can actually process) rather than on overall performance, quality and results. Some severe cases of micromanagement arise from other underlying mental-health conditions such as obsessive–compulsive personality disorder.
