    Book details

One simple idea can set you free: Don't take on a problem if it isn't yours! One of the most liberating books in the extraordinary One Minute Manager Library teaches managers an unforgettable lesson: how to have time to do what they want and need to do. The authors tell why managers who accept every problem given them by their staffs become hopeless bottlenecks. With a vivid, humorous, and too-familar scenario they show a manager loaded down by all the monkeys that have jumped from their rightful owners onto his back. Then step by step they show how managers can free themselves from doing everyone else's job and ensure that every problem is handled by the proper staff person. By using Oncken's Four Rules of Monkey Management managers will learn to become effective supervisors of time, energy, and talent -- especially their own.

If you have ever wondered why you are in the office on the weekends and your staff is on the golf course, The One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey is for youit's priceless!

    Ken Blanchard, William Oncken Jr, Hal burrows what a piece of experience you have shared I am sure it has/had helped a lot of managers to learn from your experience and have thought them what is actually management all about

    Excellent in its simplicity.

  • By Kevin Roberts on 7 March 2005

    thought this was an excellent book. As with the others in this series it's a bit American but despite that contains some good stuff.The main thing I got from the book is a sight of how things should be in terms of an effectively delegated workload. Then that is sufficiently motivating that you can pick up some of the techniques and systems that are suggested to start working towards that. I don't think there is any overnight fix to this kind of thing, which is why the mix of pragmatic stuff to do today and the vision of how things should be is a powerful mix.Any book you can read in a quick burst and contains one or two thought provoking and applicable ideas has got to be good value.
