Don't Abdictae your Accountability..
Ahmad Sultan Abdulla, Consultant, Malaysia, Member
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.
