This paper considered micromanagement and Job Performance of Employees in the manufacturing industry in Ogun State, Nigeria. Micromanagement was considered on three dimensions of job performance (that is, altruism, conscientiousness and task performance). The study employed a descriptive research design. The population consists of all employees present in the services of Dangote Cement Ibesse in Ogun State, Nigeria. A sample of one hundred and ninety-eight (198) employees were randomly selected from the three divisions of Dangote Cement (i.e., thirty-three (33) each from Agrosack, Cement and Transport division), Ibesse. The main instrument adapted for data collection was a validated questionnaire for micromanagement tagged Construct and Validation of Micromanagement Questionnaire and Assessing Reliability and Validity of Job Performance Scale for job performance. Product moment correlation and multiple regression analyses were used in analyzing the data collected. The research result shows that there exists a positive relationship between Micromanagement and Job Performance (that is, Altruism, Conscientiousness and Task Performance). It was found that Micromanagement being a negatively loaded concept in management is not all bad if the concept is applied under certain conditions and circumstances. It was therefore recommended that the concept be fully understood by both managers and subordinates to ease the flow of operation in organizations
