Micromanagement: n. controlling a subset(s) to the smallest degree and/or level

Micromanaging is frequently undesirable because it consumes too much supervisory time and feels like the boss is overly commanding you to do things in your job which you probably feel that you can do without supervision.

Micromanaging may be useful in training a new employee with little prior knowledge of what the job consists of but once the routine is learned there should be no need for further micromanagement.

Computer software by nature is micromanagement or a program thought out in the most minute of details which the job consists of. Computer software does the micromanagement and permits its user to input relevant data or instructions which are vital to the task but the main processing of the data is done automatically by the computer.

We have micromanagers which are computers but it should be minimally done by human managers or supervisory personnel.
