Just go have your cigarette and let me get the job done.
Then your first mistake is to assume that all environments are like the technical environment you work in. I worked in claims operations years and years ago. I didn't need a manager. Just someone who was quick and responsive. But don't make the ridiculous suggestion that all environments are like this. I manage in a Fortune 100 corporation. I've managed in cutthroat environments where if your people weren't delivering business results, you got drilled and they got drilled. I know that bad managers struggle to delegate work, and employees get under-utilized. I know that good managers dictate a clear strategy to their workers in an unclear environment.

I can promise you that right now, scouts have 20 minutes of information and Pioli has time to hear 2 minutes of it. And whereas Phil Emery probably took heat if a good prospect got passed up, now scouts will get grilled and maybe even fired.

Emery's job was to organize the scouts and take hours of information and condense it in to quick reads for Pioli. Not an easy job by any stretch. And definitely an important one.
