Like many people, I was enthused by the simple, clear picture presented by THE ONE MINUTE MANAGER of the key management tasks that could allow me to communicate better with others. Then the doubt began. How do I handle tough people? How do I handle promising beginners? And so forth. I think I learned much more from reading PUTTING THE ONE MINUTE MANAGER TO WORK than I did from the ONE MINUTE MANAGER. An expecially good part is the PRICE system that uses measurements to create valuable feedback and motivation for people to improve. I strongly urge you to read this book. If you want to know even more about how to use measurements and feedback to get results that are 20 times better, you owe it to yourself to read THE 2,000 PERCENT SOLUTION. This book is totally consistent with the One Minute Manager books.

24 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 10, 2000
Format: Paperback
Almost everyone who reads the One Minute Manager loves the book, both for its simplicity and clarity. One minute goal-setting, praisings and reprimands soon abound. Gradually, all of this good communication can begin to tail off.
The One Minute Manager process needs to become a new habit and to expand the skills both of the one minute manager and the people who work for her/him. That's where Putting the One Minute Manager to Work comes into play.
This excellent sequel to the One Minute Manager provides more guidance on how to combine goal-setting, praisings and reprimands. This is combined in the Price System. Price stands for Pinpoint where performance should be improved, then Record the current performance, Involve the person involved in setting goals and how reviews and coaching will occur, Coach people to improve results, and Evaluate the performance to reinforce the good and replace the not so good.
This is basically the classic Skinner model on behavior modification, and it works well.
The key limitation of the approach is that it does not go far enough to determine where and how much performance should be improved, learn what is possible, and use best practices to transfer knowledge.
In terms of the 2,000 percent solution process, this just covers part of the first two of eight steps. But it does cover what it covers well.
If this process improves you from where you are today, by all means use it. If you are already a great communicator and motivator, then you are beyond this book.
My guess is that almost everyone in their first managerial role would benefit from this book. Communications are the biggest source of stalled performance in most companies, and this book provides solid information for overcoming that stall.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A. E. Dahan on March 6, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is pitched at managers who are either new to the position or managers who feel they might have people problems they need to resolve - in other words: everybody. A lot of the philosophy is common sense to me, and I say this to emphasize that I agree with it wholeheartedly.

The core of the book revolves around closing the loop - if you'll pardon the pun - on training, monitoring and giving feedback when managing employees. The authors follow the style of management that delineates goals, performance and how the employee's performance matches the targets: activators, behaviors and consequences, that is, the ABC's of people management.

The manager should make sure he ("he" is she or he) sets appropriate goals for each employee and for each task. Goals must be concrete and observable and targets must be measurable. When giving feedback, make sure it is constructive. If the results are positive, give lots of praise. If the results aren't up to par, review the reasons with the employee, get agreement, and end the discussion on a positive note, praising the employee about one angle of the task he or she did well. The authors therefore, advocate encouraging learning by reassessing goals, and never reprimanding a learner.

Another part of the philosophy is PRICE, which stands for P-inpoint, R-ecord, I-nvolve, C-oach, E-valuate - all revolving around identification and recording of planned measurable output, help or coaching along the way and checking performance against the specific targets originally set. This identification and planning of the measurable output must be arrived at together with the employee to ensure that the employee has a sense of ownership of the targets to achieve.

Format: Paperback
An excellent book that focuses on the positive sides of good management and offers solid suggestions to putting management practices to work. This is an especially good "must read" book for those managers who believe in using a hard-line approach to their employees and who are facing the consequences of such tactics, i.e. high turnover, low productivity, etc.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Michael S. Waren on December 16, 2003
Format: Paperback
The original One Minute Manager was the very first management book that I read. I am happy to read this sequel and see in detail the implementation of its principles in this short book by authors Kenneth Blanchard Ph.D. and Robert Lorber Ph. D. as they stress the importance of praising (as well as reprimanding) employees which often times gets lost in today's very busied, hurried, bottom-line scrutinizing Corporate culture. Remember to be successful managing employees we must all pay the pay the PRICE: (Pinpoint, Record, Involve, Coach and Evaluate.)
