The challenge for management is to enable their managers to make day-to-day decisions without consulting upper management.  If you trust them to manage your people and process, then enable them to make  choices that will benefit their department.

“When managers in the middle are taking ownership of issues, making decisions, and becoming accountable for results, then senior managers have the freedom to think and act strategically without getting bogged down in tactical matters.”

From Lead Your Boss, The Subtle Art of Managing Up by John Baldoni
