Management by Exception: Authority Without Accountability

Delegating authority without accountability leads to authoritarianism.
Accountability is to be able to answer for a performance to the source that delegated the vested authority. Accountability is a metric that embodies values, ethics, trust, and results for effective governance.
Authority and accountability fuel agilities to anticipate, decide, and execute within contexts.
Authority without accountability is undemocratic and inefficient. Excepting accountability is not a feature of MBE.

Don't Abdictae your Accountability..

Theoretically mbe advocates empowerment to your team members.
However, in reality as a manager you should also keep your eyes on other variables and associated risks. I would narrow down mbe to the amount of time a manager spends on guiding and coaching his followers rather then taking his eyes off the entire process of management.
Remember, a manager's wisdom is required in every aspect of management, including raising potential associated risks and managing politics.
Mbe should not be equated with abdicating your accountability to those who you think are already good at their tasks.
