- Phrase for focusing on unimportant details 15 answers
I'm looking for a term to describe someone who loses sight of the big picture because he focuses on the wrong details, for instance:
a sales manager who fires his highest performing sales rep because the sales rep was a minute late to work but doesn't fire the poorly performing sales reps because they have always been on time.
I wouldn't call this person a perfectionist because the poorly performing sales reps are still on the payroll.
I'm basically looking for a term to label someone who doesn't know how to properly assign weights to relevant information when making a decision.
