I started my management career in 1970 and was lucky to have attended a 2 day seminar in 1972 from William Oncken and I have read all his books. Once you read his work you quickly realize that you never have to read another management book again. His understanding of human nature and the real dynamics of organizations is profound. His work is as relavant now as it was 30 years ago. This is a must read for anyone trying to get ahead in corporate America.

Funny, memorable and inspiring.
After 20 years in business I finally got it. And it came from this book. When I first became a supervisor my company provided me with a course in 'monkey management'. I thought I understood it and my roll in it but I was only on the receiving end of the monkeys.
This book not only taught me how to be a professional manager, but also explained how to make my subordinates and myself 'professional managees'. That's whats not taught in so many management courses and seminars.
Don't think because this book is out of print that it's no longer relevant. I've been to seminars with Ken Blanchard, Tom Peters, et al. Oncken had them cold a long time ago.

Format: Hardcover
Oncken has condensed time managment, functional managment, peer communications, project/task mangement and control and oraganizing the content of a job to maximize the effectiveness of the manager and his/her team. This is the only course I've been exposed to (in over 20 years) that is not only practical, but blends the various activities and responsibilities of management into a cohesive useable philosophy and work ethic. The 'monkey theory' is easily adopted with a minimum of fuss. Bill promises that after a two day seminar you will NOT be saddled with two more days of work, but within one day of applying the tools learned during the seminar you will be caught up. I SUBMIT that reading the book and using the principles presented will net the same results. A job that becomes simultaneously controllable, fun and effective.

A management book written by a genius in management. If you are a manager, or aspire to be one, you must read this book! It will save your life. Written in a homey, unpretentious style that makes it easy to read. Since it has been out of print for awhile, it needs to be updated by the Oncken company and republished.

I listened to the audio tapes by the author many years ago. It is hilarious and full of very practical advice. I tried to buy the tape for a friend but could not find it. So I bought the bok and hope that is is as good and as full of wisdom.

This book goes into a lot of detail about Time Management. I read it and no only became more effective in my use of time but have used it to help others. Also, I learned how to not to get in trouble with misusing my time.
