Thanks. Yes micro-management is one of the things which can kill Agile.
Another thing, ironically, is democracy.
Sorry to tease: I’m writing about this very topic in my real-life, not anonymous blog.
Agile is focused on the team producing a quality product.
However, whether Agile is being employed or Waterfall, the focus should be on a quality product.
I believe you can’t do that without collaboration throughout the process.
