None of the above requires you to understand what your team is doing as well as they do or how they are doing it, technically. But having a rigorous process for understanding why they are doing it, the value, the costs, and evaluating your own confidence level will help you ensure that your team is, in fact, working on the right things.

Good article that, by the way, isn't just for non-technical managers. I've seen many technical managers get sidelined working through projects.
