This little book does none of that. It's points are clear, suggestions are practical, and it doesn't waste your time.
I've been using it to train Managers, both new and experienced, for over 10 years and it has proven its worth time and again. It is the ONLY "business" book I recommend.
The book: (1) provides a framework for managers to evaluate improper or inadequate job performance; (2) identifies 16 reasons why employees are not performing their job tasks properly or adequately; (3) gives concrete examples to explain and illustrate the 16 reasons; (4) compares and contrasts some of the 16 reasons that appear to overlap with other reasons; (5) offers possible solutions for each of the 16 reasons; and (6) presents a good argument for why managers need to engage in "preventive management" rather than react to performance problems after they occur.
One especially good aspect of the book is that its analysis and discussion can be applied to the evaluation of the performance of managers themselves, not just the performance of the employees being managed or supervised. Managers should keep in mind that the 16 reasons for improper or inadequate job performance are applicable to them just as much as to the employees they manage. Managers interested in learning ways to do their jobs better and more effectively should read this book.
