If you have a Micromanager, and they are micromanaging every piece of information that there is, then holding back information until such time as it is relavant is a plausable way to manage the micro-manager.
The worker can better determine what their needs are at the grunt level than the micromanager does at the 10,000 foot level. We have had three micromanagers and all of them were fired because they took too long to do a project.
Rather than bringing knowledgable people in, and let them do their job, the micro-manager was doing everyone's job. It got to the point where people did not do anything.
Our last manager hired the right people, let them do their job, and when something arose, we called the manager and let him know what the deal was and that the customer is going to call.
He never got called.
The micromanager? Never was off the phone.
