At first, the notion might seem absurd or a stretch, but the book is not a gimmick. The authors are a P. After all these years, the advice of Kenneth Blanchard and Spencer Johnson rings true as does the endorsement of C-level persons from firms like Chevron and Jack In The Box. Perhaps like the reader, the book's narrator is a somewhat incredulous and curious person who is justly sceptical about the concept.

The One Minute Manager is a short book by Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson. The brief volume tells a story, recounting three techniques and of an effective manager: one-minute goals, one-minute praisings and one-minute reprimands. Each of these takes only a minute but is purportedly of lasting benefit.

One minute on the clock and go! This book had interesting points as well as surprisingly brash and blunt points (e.g. the "One Minute Manager" getting upset and warning the man who came to question him not to make him repeat himself). The "One Minute Manager" claims to like people and results. The latter part is understood. However, does he really like people? It seems his personality is similar to most other managers (i.e. condescending, haughty, curt, speciously polite, etc.). Although the "One Minute Manager" needs to work on his people skills, if you peel back his (onion) layers, he seems to authentically want both his business and his people to succeed. Oh no, my minute's up. There's the door. Take care now. ;-)
My prof for Video Game Production had this short book as required reading for the class. I really enjoyed reading this and will encourage anyone that ever has to lead a group of people to read it too. The book is told as a simple story and as you progress you are taught the principles of the One Minute Manager. As I'm reading this I'm thinking "Wow, that seems like it should just be common knowledge", but it isn't.

While you or I may have thought of it, or part of it at some point, it's nice to have a quick book lay it all out for you to digest and internalize as a whole philosophy for managing any group of people.

Unfortunately the majority of people that move up to the title of manager have little to no training ... managing people. My personal experience is that anyone without management training decides that managing = "cracking the whip" and then doesn't understand when he not only doesn't get the results he expected but that his entire team wishes he would die in a fire.

This book should be required reading for anyone promoted to manager.
This is a simple, though not simplistic, management book which can be read in one sitting and the message is easily understood. The principle is that by setting clear goals, praising people when you catch them doing something right (this is by far the most important takeaway from the book) and promptly reprimanding them, in an objective, matter of fact way, whenever they veer off the right path, you become an effective and efficient manager while setting people on the right path to managing themselves and eventually managing others. Though no credit is given to others for these ideas, it's clear that they are founded on the principles of positive reinforcement that come from behavioral psychology and had previously proved efficacy in fields ranging from animal training, therapy for people with disabilities (i.e. applied behavioral analysis used for autism) and various forms of mental illness, and can definitely help regular people achieve even higher levels of performance.

The book is almost 30 years old and, because it's more principle centered rather than practical, I would say it has stood the test of time quite well. Given today's complex work environment, where often times responsibilities are difuse and not clearly defined, things like "one minute" goal settings should be taken in a more aspirational than in a literal way, and as long as you see it that way you can get much value out of this book. In fact many performance management systems today are already based on these ideas, so it's useful to understand them.
My all professional friend. I read with every new and along through the tenure.
I have given as a gift to new comers. I think it's sage advice.
I work for a major retail store, and am also climbing the ranks there. My store manager recommended that I read this book, because it was helpful to him when dealing with people. When the book arrived, I thought I'd start reading it before bed. Not the case. I layed down for bed and read the whole book, cover to cover. I didn't know it was going to be in "story" form - which was kind of cheesy - it almost turned into the Wizard of Oz at one point. I was expecting a non-fiction book. But I must say, it was semi-helpful. I use the "One minute reprimands" and "One minute appraisal" techniques alot now, and have been complimented by other managers who overhear them, which makes me think reading this book was not a mistake!
The great thing about Ken Blanchard's "One Minute Manager" is you can read it in about an hour (not a minute, as my co-worker joked). It's a tiny book that you can power through in no time, but the concepts in these limited pages are important and thought-provoking.

"One Minute Manager" emphasizes the importance of asking the right questions, holding your staff to a high standard, holding them accountable (and yourself), and offering praise when it's appropriate. Like most leadership books, Blanchard's philosophy is pretty straightforward and touches on many of the same concepts other books espouse.

You just can't beat the super fast read and the super easy to reference layout.

A must-have for your leadership library.
This book will only take you about an hour or two to read; and those just may be some of the best two hours spent. Blanchard outlines a simple method to help you achieve your goals while modifying and reinforcing the behaviors of others. The perspective is told clearly demonstrates the effectiveness of the One Minute Method.

If you buy this book you will not be disappointed. I initially purchased this book as required reading for one of my classes and I couldn't be happier that I was introduced.

This is a great gift item for those who are into self-help books or business professionals. Enjoy!
