This review is from: No B.S. Ruthless Management of People and Profits (Paperback)
This guy makes a lot of sense on one level - when you are running a small to medium business and have to watch every dime. I would like to think there are better ways to encourage work than monitoring PC use and putting cameras all over the place. We all know some people abuse or waste their time - so give them more to do and if they can do it - great. It means it was your fault that they didn't have enough work. Then you don't have to spy on your own people.
Also - these issues of waste exist at larger companies. Problem in big companies is that HR has taken over and seem to enforce the rules of PC - which often lead to talk about working but no working. After all - they are there to protect the company and think of reasons of why you are not paid what your're worth. My advice - don't use the suggestions in this book at a big company unless you are sure of it. It might lead to results that are not to your favor.
