There are some in the “Agile Coaching” community and beyond who feel that management is by definition bad — some might even say evil.
Sure, bad managers are bad managers, but that doesn’t mean all management/leadership is bad.
The Agilistas are throwing the baby out with the bath water here.
Poor management is bad. Micromanagement is bad.
But good management is good, and highly effective.
As I’ve pointed out in the past, moving from mediocre management to even more mediocre management, spread-out across the team, is usually a recipe for disaster.
If a business has poor management, they should seek to hire and retain, or retrain, their existing management. If you business needs help in this area feel free to get in touch.
