I titled this article a bit tongue-in-cheek as this is one of the aspects of working for a large corporation with many layers of management that I despise. I spend a few hours each week simply documenting what I did that week for my manager. There are times that I spend more time documenting a task that the time it actually takes to perform that task. It’s this level of micromanaging that is one of the downfalls of working for large corporations and why they are not nearly as nimble and productive as small businesses and start-ups. There is one place however, where it is important to track every detail as to gain a deeper understanding of the situation…your spending.
