The way of the administrator is to set tasks and deadlines. These will be done more efficiently by computers in future, and then those administrators will withdraw and resign quietly.
Sometimes we have administrators in senior positions, who fill the air with noise and distract attention from leaders, who are leading, and who are answering the questions: why do we exist? What does success look like? How do we get there?
Why, what and how?
Too often we mistake the simplicity in these questions for unimportance.
