How's the view up there?

Manager-types like to look at things from a "high level." Instead of worrying about the crucial details of a project, they prefer to be a bit further off, so they can see issues from multiple angles, and how those issues relate to each other.

I don’t have anything against this. But some managers can be very literal about how "high up" they are when looking at the problem.
