The purpose of management is to serve the team. You are there to ensure that your team can work at their best, and that obstacles to the best possible work are removed.
So, your main aim should be to help make the individuals that make up your team the best they can be.
Management should ensure that meta-work is reduced as much as possible, and should review processes regularly to ensure that we do not creep into a bureaucracy.
