My manager holds a one hour stand up with the team every day, and has one-on-ones with everyone weekly. This is beneficial for some things, but my concern is that the manager asks many technical questions, with very little technical input and contribution. Documentation and reports already exist, but she doesn’t take the time to read them. As the title says, I feel she “wants to know everything”.
The issue I take with this is: While some of us enjoy teaching others (manager included), it takes up my and other team members’ time, without much benefit to the product - time which could be otherwise spent in development.
I have never been a manager, so does she have good rationales for this aspect of her behavior? Are we misguided in thinking negatively of her questions?
If not, how should we handle this, in the interest of our product, client and team?
