    Read this as a follow-up to the 1st book in the series (because my library had both of them) and it was a great extension, laying out the steps for implementation. Love the way both of these books are written as allegories ... so readable.

    Good 'how to' book on management. Some good ideas I gleaned from the book: "People who produce good results feel good about themselves."

ABCs of Management: A = Activators (What a manager does before performance,ex. OMG) B = Behavior (Performance: what someone says or does, ex. WT or task C = Consequence (What a manager does after the performance, ex OMP, OMR) Keep it Short and Simple You have 30 seconds to relay feelings regarding undesirable performance CAN'T DO SOMETHING? -> go back to Goal Setting ( a Training Problem) WON'T DO SOMETHING? -> go to Reprimand (attitude problem) One is unwilling, one is unable ---- both problems result in undesirable performance. 4 STEPS in TRAINING (modified) 1. TELL 2. SHOW 3. LET TRY/OBSERVE 4. PRAISE progress or REDIRECT (RETRAIN) 15%-25% of desirable performance results from Goal Setting 75%-85% of desirable performance results from consequences like praisings and reprimands Only positive consequences,encourage desirable future results. Managers should spned 10X as much time following up as it takes to do goal setting. Only Reprimand when you KNOW a person can do better. When you end a Reprimand with a Praising, people think about their behavior (undesirable performance) NOT what you said or how you said it. PAYING THE P R I C E PINPOINT - the Problem or desired result RECORD - measure the performance so that you know if there is a Problem (and improvement is needed, then Reprimand or Reset Goals) or if is desirable and there is Progress (then give a OMP) Share the Record with the employee who is responsible: graphs, numbers, etc. as a training tool. FEEDBACK IS THE BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS (Measurements, numbers are the Feedback) Start with small goals and move to bigger ones; don't start with the huge goal; ex. 39% labor across the board. INVOLVE - determine goals and consequences for desirable outcomes (bonuses) COACH - Observe performance and give feedback; use numbers; "You did (or did not) meet your goal". As people improve, move them to monitoring their own behavior. EVALUATE - "Are you getting the results you want or not?" "Why or why not?" -> Reprimand or new Goal Setting required? It is more constructive to compete against a performance standard rather than against others. EMPLOYEES NEED TO KNOW: 1. What they are being asked to do 2. What good behavior looks like 3. How well they are doing 4. What they would get for good performance

    This is the companion volume to The One Minute Manager – good “how to” books on management, specially people management. It shows how the One Minute management techniques can be employed on a day to day basis to improve performance, productivity and profits.

Aside from the three secrets of one-minute manager, some of the ideas I gleaned from the book: ➡️ People who produce good results feel good about themselves – it’s more consistent with management style. (as opposed to People who feel good about themselves produce good results). ➡️ ABC’s of management (the Activators, the resulting Behavior, and the appropriate Consequences). ➡️ The PRICE system (Pinpoint, Record, Involve, Coach and Evaluate) and its application. ➡️ Be specific while praising the person. Tell them exactly what they did right. ➡️ While reprimanding focuses on behavior, not the person. ➡️ If a person can’t do something-------> go back to goal setting (A Training problem). ➡️ If a person won’t do something-------> reprimand (An Attitude problem). ➡️ Only Reprimand when you know a person can do better. ➡️ Only positive consequences encourage desirable future results. The key to successful management are conviction and consistency. It was a quick read and shows how this can be achieved in engaging story-telling format.

    I read this book only because I bought it as a package deal with The One Minute Manager. To summarize my review of The One Minute Manager, I thought the book might be helpful for anyone who has never managed people before, but it was really nothing life-changing for anyone who has managed others. This book is considerably more useful to the experienced manager. I approached this book with a slightly closed mind; however, I actually plan to implement some of these strategies at my business.

    While certainly dated, Kenneth Blanchard's follow-up to One Minute Manger is decent. It still reads terribly, like a piece of fiction. But what it does do is add some pieces that were missing from the first book. Showing ways on how to implement the One Minute Managerial style is definitely needed, but this book could have done with quite a few more examples. I loved the PRICE method and especially the pinwheel. I believe I'll be using that in the future.

    I suspect this book was written as a follow-up to the original book due to implementation issues faced in reality. Basically, a typical performance management system was added on top of the basic principles of One Minute Management so that it can implemented practically in reality. Nonetheless, as always with books in this series, it is a quick read and shows how this can be achieved in engaging story-telling format.

    Putting the One Minute Manager to work was not the type of book I thought I would read but I'm glad I did. It gave me a view through the window of management which is new to me and introduced me to several different ideals and tools to manage. I enjoyed how the author told the story as a manager experiencing first hand the benefits of one minute management and how it can better your business/personal life.

    Great, easy to read story incorporating a ton of the better practical operations and administrative management concepts of the recent past. Building on The One Minute Manager, this book is an invaluable companion to the original, providing you subscribe to the theory or practice of One Minute Management.

    I really like this series and how the concepts interlock. PRICE is a great, simple framework for development - of other people or yourself. I wasn't sure how much value I would find in this book (or the 1st One Minute Manager) because I work by myself... But they are actually still very relevant even for my situation.

    I like the simplicity of these management books and the parable style. I'm not sure this book is deserving of any literary awards, but the practical applications of the ABC's, One-Minute Goal-settings, praises and reprimands and the PRICE system are excellent and can be applied across many different fields. I'd highly recommend this to all new managers. I like the simplicity of these management books and the parable style.

    I'm thankful for this book. Since it adds three new techniques (goal, admiring and blaming ) for one min. It was for me the same technique of my previous boss (god blessing him) for admiring and blaming only. I'm thankful for this book.

    This was kind of hokie. There were one or two small aha moments, but nothing to really write home about. The information is still valid, but presented with some very dated attitudes. And, occasionally, I felt like I was reading an after-school special. Especially that whole Hank story.

    If you read the One Minute manager and you need a user's manual, this book can give you what you need, on the other hand you can make a presentation out of it related to the ways used to apply the One minute Manager.

    While I found the first book valuable, there’s no reason to buy or read this one. It reads as gimmicky, and could have been summarized in one paragraph as an addendum or afterthought since the original came out.

    I give it 4 stars as it to short, but really it deserves 5, I benifited a lot from this book and the previous The One Minute Manager, in the field of management it is very simple and to the point, really recommend it to any one in a management field.

    it's good for the people in management, the way of power and responsiblities delegation, the way to collect reports of job completed/ uncompleted are really learnable. it's good for the people in management, the way of power and responsiblities delegation, the way to collect reports of job completed/ uncompleted are really learnable.
