I believe that 90% of people have encountered a time when they think they have been excessively interfered by their boss. They confirmed the product plan with the boss, and then carried out market user research, demand analysis, demand review, UI design review... The boss has to ask... If This boss still knows a little about technology, so he will intervene in the technical plan...
Is it annoying?
I have also encountered such a boss who is so detailed at first. At first, I didn’t understand it. Later, it was my turn to be the head of the department, the product director, and the manager of a company. I gradually realized that the deep involvement of the boss has many reasons.
For example, the trust between the Latest Mailing Database two parties has not been established, and the boss is more responsible. This kind of trust has a process of building. You must make the boss aware of your professionalism, and you must be self-driven to consider a more comprehensive plan than him. There are at least two plans, and then you can choose which one is preferred. What's the reason?
As a boss, try not to overtake your boss. Although it is a bit difficult to let subordinates do the work from worrying to worrying about it, you must consciously let each person in each position do what he should do. Here is a recommended book "Don't Let the Monkey Jump" Back on the Back", both employees and managers are worth a look.
Therefore, employees who are interfered with too much by the boss must have their professional ability not up to the level of trust; bosses who like to interfere too much with the work of employees do not have the courage to throw their employees into the valley of despair. After all, they often lose I can't afford it, especially for small teams.
How to crack, only grow with ruthlessness, find the right person, establish a learning organization, and each is responsible for its own part.
Take a look at a specific problem encountered by a product manager below, and guess that 80% of product managers and designers have encountered it.
A friend of mine is a product manager who has been doing pretty well. But one day I saw him with a sad face, so I asked him: Did you encounter any difficulties? He said: The boss asked me to do this, I have no opinion. But it must be stipulated that my product UI must be designed in this way, I can't agree, because it completely violates my interaction design experience.
I carefully read the UI design draft of their product and fully agree with his opinion. The interaction method specified by his boss is indeed very inhumane and completely wishful thinking. But I don't have a good way to solve his dilemma: because neither I nor he can only rely on experience and intuition to judge whether the interaction is good or not, and there is no real evidence to refute it.
