I found the statement below on Thinkpurpose blog  – IMO an excellent summary of the essence of command & control management philosophy:

“That people can’t be trusted, that people higher up the chain have a wider strategic view and know more so can pass judgement on work going on below them purely by glancing at a score card and applying their superior strategic vision.”
