Micromanagement is often seen as the root of all evil in the workforce. Employees who are “micromanaged” (whether they are or not) can become severely disgruntled, making for a poor work environment.

However, when used effectively, micromanagement is a highly effective tool for getting projects back on track. In a five part series on WordsCause, I am sharing a recent experience I have with a derailed ecommerce project that I was able to not only get back on track, but the team delivered more than what was promised in less time than was originally projected!
