From the Back Cover
A revised edition of the timeless business classic—updated to help today’s readers succeed more quickly in a rapidly changing world.
For decades, The One Minute Manager® has helped millions achieve more successful professional and personal lives. While the principles it lays out are timeless, our world has changed drastically since the book’s publication. The exponential rise of technology, global flattening of markets, instant communication, and pressures on corporate workforces to do more with less—including resources, funding, and staff—have all revolutionized the world in which we live and work.
Now, Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson have updated The One Minute Manger to introduce the book’s powerful, important lessons to a new generation. In their concise, easy-to-read story, they teach readers three very practical secrets about leading others—and explain why these techniques continue to work so well.
As compelling today as it was thirty years ago, this classic parable of a young man looking for an effective manager is more relevant and useful than ever.--This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Second, criticizing an individual, per the One Minute redirect, is also a bad idea. It is the employee review done more frequently. Instead, find employees doing things right. Offering to show them a simpler or faster way of doing things is positive teaching. Who wants to be criticized?
To me, it seems as if the New One Minute Manager is in danger of not knowing what is really happening in his organization. It is better to manage by wandering around (MBWA). Ask your people how you can make their job easier. Find out what the issues are (not to solve them) so you can better understand what they are facing.
Maybe, since I'm now retired (CFO, COO, Army officer), the simplistic views of success are not as appealing as they once were.
While the principles are essentially the same, I find myself referring to Lew Brown, who said "It's always good to be reminded of what we know." This book was a great reminder of a positive method to build an effective organization. The authors have updated the information and it fits well in today's world.
If you haven't read any One Minute Manager books before, you will not find a quicker way to gain some easy-to-understand yet extremely important skills. Five stars.
It talks about the journey of a salesman in a very patronizing voice as some sort of narrative? Not what I expected in this book. I expected a bunch of scenarios given as examples and good managerial quips and comebacks with general advice. This book was not that.
Maybe it's unfair for me to rate a book one star simply because I thought it was so cringe-inducing. Maybe it is full of good advice that I couldn't see. But I have donated it to the thrift store already!!
I read the original years ago and reference it routinely in my work as a leadership consultant, often recommending it to people starting their leadership journey. In fact, I wore out my paperback copy and just bought this edition. It's an excellent update that's tightened up around the edges just right.
Essentially, Blanchard appies the psychological theory of operant conditioning to leadership. This is effective in many situations but incomplete as a leadership style. The major flaw in his approach is the underlying assumption that the "one-minute manager" knows what right looks like for each of his/her subordinates. This may well be true in situations where the supervisor has worked their way up from the rank-and-file, but even then, circumstances (technology, best practices, etc.) evolve. This means the problems / tasks may be solved differently now. Far more common is the need for the leader to help his/her people to solve problems by providing resources (e.g. servant leadership) but also by coaching and assisting.
If you already have a top organization and you are looking for a book skip this one, but if you work for a public sector agency that still follows the rules of 20 - 50 years ago this is fantastic book.
If you are a private sector company and are looking at hiring former public sector employees use this book as your litmus test even before you take the time to interview.
I am ordering 2 more as gifts for people at work.

The 'NEW' book moves from topdown controlled environments to that of flatter organisation types and thus adapts well to present time employees and on top goes 'hand in glove' with e.g. Starfish types of organisations (with just a little spider added) - my personal favorites.
I highly recommend for anyone at any phase or stage of your career.
