The opposite of micromanagement
“Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.” ~ George S. Patton
You hired your people for a reason. They are skilled. They are smart. They have experience. They are fast learners.
Give them opportunities to impress you. Give them chances to grow their competencies and their experience. Empower them to make decisions on how to complete their parts of the project.
Check in at appropriate intervals. Give feedback. Provide templates and resources and “it needs to work when we do X” information. But don’t micromanage the process.
