Management by exception is a technique that involves automating core processes and empowering teams to handle expected business conditions. Managers step in to handle exceptions such as errors, performance issues and unusual circumstances. Management by exception is based on the observation that most core businesses processes can be automated or handled by well trained employees. It's also founded on the experience that it isn't economical or advisable to automate every possible business scenario, that human intervention by someone with authority to solve problems is often the best solution in exceptional circumstances.
