    "Uber's redesign contained an unprecedented level of micromanagement of the design team by Kalanick".

    It looks & feels very much this way.

      Logo's always seem to go this route. It is such an important part of the company that leadership, especially founders, can't help but be heavily hands on.

      I wonder what the proper level of involvement should be. Micromanagement is definitely a hinderance but if you involve them too late they reject interesting ideas.

        I think a high level of involvement is great, but it needs an equal level of respect. Respect for the opinion of experts and respect for the process.
