The One Minute Manager series is outstanding. This is the book that started it all. Back in the early 1980s, it was believed that two books would revolutionize the business world. The One Minute Manager is one of those two books; In Search of Excellence is the other one.
This is a quaint little talk that takes the reader on a visit to a highly effective manager’s office where this manager, the One Minute Manager, teaches a young man how to be an effective manager.
The book teaches common sense management techniques that weren’t so common back in the 1980s.
If you are a manager, or hope to become one, you should add this book to your reading list. Even if management is not in your plans for your future, it is a worthwhile read.
In looking at some of the comments made on amazon.com, I noticed that some people did not read the parts of the book where it is stated that it doesn’t really take only a minute. The idea is to manage effectively without spending a great deal of time doing the same things over and over again.
For those who feel that the book is simplistic, you need to realize that this is the idea of the book. It is meant to convey a basic management technique in a book that can be read in one sitting.
I feel like this book is well worth the money it costs. I have several copies in my collection.
