Despite the wonderful accomplishments of Drs. Blanchard and Johnson, this book was very dissappointing.
I think of it as typical consultants' babble because you will get wrapped up in intellectual theories and appraoches to the art of management, but after you put the book down you'll realize you've got nothing tangible and practical to use in your everyday life. As a management consultant once explained to me about his field, many consultants are good "Beanbag Punchers". They make an amazing change where they strike the bag, but on the opposite side nothing has really changed. I was disappointed in this book because the authors are clearly not Beanbag Punchers, but nothing about my management sytle has benfitted from this book.
Furthermore, the fictional approach of the book (I'm assuming the underlying story is fictional) is borderline condescending. Its tone is similar to the grade school books your 10-year-old reads to learn good manners.
However, the book is reasonably priced and very short reading, so you may enjoy its content based on the effort you'll expend. The theories expressed are unique and thought provoking.
Bottom line:
If you want to learn how to be a better manager, this book isn't your answer.
If you want to explore news ways to manage people, it's worth a quick read.

I was a little disappointed when 'The One Minute Manager' arrived in the mail and I saw its small size and large fonts. However, this tiny little fairy-tale book is the best management book I've read. I strongly recommend this book. 'The One Minute Manager' takes less than an hour to read, and if you have any interest in becoming a better manager or a stronger leader, surely you can risk 60 minutes of your time? The ideas are not contrived, artificial mechanisms that interfere with our natural personalities. Instead, the entire strategy can be implemented by following a few simple rules that feel natural and are easy to perform and maintain.
A word of caution though, use of the strategy assumes the individuals on the manager's team are intelligent, and the tools presented are designed to encourage subordinates to become more independent and responsible, not reliant on a manager's approval, input or direction on minor decisions. Any manager who wants to be involved in all aspects of a project couldn't possibly use the strategies of 'The One Minute Manager' without driving his team nuts.

Wer die Minuten-Manager-Serie kennt weiß, was von Kenneth Blanchard zu erwarten ist: Ein schnell und einfach lesbares Buch, das in anschaulichen Beispielen wenige Gedanken deutlich macht. Intellektuell wird der Leser nicht überfordert, aber deswegen ist der Inhalt keineswegs platt oder offensichtlich.

Dieser Band erklärt, dass beim Aufbau von Hochleistungs-Teams vier Phasen berücksichtigt werden sollten:
1. Orientation
2. Dissatisfaction
3. Resolution
4. Production

D.h. Ken Blanchard hält die Phase der Ernüchterung für unvermeidbar, aber auch für nützlich. Wie bei den übrigen Minuten-Manager-Büchern betont Blanchard auch hier das Empowerment, d.h. die Delegation von Verantwortung nach unten. Ebenso wichtig ist es, die Ziele richtig zu kommunizieren.

Das Buch gibt es auch auf deutsch, aber die Originalversion ist auch für nicht-Englisch-Muttersprachler leicht zu verstehen. Wer Teams leitet, wird hier nützliche Anregungen finden. Die beschriebenen Mechanismen funktionieren in Sport und Non-Profit-Organisationen ebenso wie im Beruf.

One might be tempted to say that the steps outlined in this book are "common sense". But it's full of wisdom I had not been using in my managerial position. And I know hundreds of other bad managers. This book is a gem. It's ideas are simplly presented and simply apprehended but amazingly powerful. It's no quick fix, though: you have to work at it to get results. A must for ever manager. It fits well with new-fangled ideas of organizational structure presented by Drucker, Peters, and other gurus.

I once worked for a boss who swore by this book, although I think he quoted it more as a justification to constantly issue "reprimands" to his subordinates (turnover rates in his office were quite high).
The book has a very oversimplified and condescending tone, and attempts inflate the "veteran manager" into some sort of sage-like fountain of knowledge (I have yet to meet such a seemingly wise, all-knowing manager like the one in this book).
Dilbert owes much of his popularity to fed-up employees working under the thumb of managers who mindlessly latch onto management fads such as this book.
If you really want to expand your mind, read *Heart of Darkness* by Joseph Conrad and *The Dilbert Principle* by Scott Adams after reading this book. Reality falls somewhere within these extremes.

The first time I read The One Minute Manager, I remember thinking "If only I could remember all these good ideas and what to say and what questions to ask". On rereading it, I can say "Yes, I do these things naturally". That is why the book is so powerful. It describes what effective people in business do naturally. Why then should so many people reread it and share it with their friends and children? The answer is simple - With today's daily pressures, people take too many short cuts and those short cuts along the bumpy road get us stalled. "The 2,000 Percent Solution" by Donald Mitchell, Carol Coles and Robert Metz talks about these "stalls" that keep us from succeeding. These "stalls" are caused by poor Communications (the message is not understood), Disbelief (We can't do it), Tradition (We've always done it this way), Bureaucracy (too many unproductive policies and procedures), Misconception (based on poor assumptions), Unattractiveness (Not wanting to wade in murky waters) and Procrastination (We can do it tomorrow, and maybe it will get better before then). The One Minute Manager takes us back to the basics of being a good manager. "The 2,000 Percent Solution" shows The One Minute Manager how to grow his or her business by 20 times the normal rate. Both are needed.

This book has influenced me for many years. It's wonderful. Some people may consider it too simple and common sense...unfortunately common sense isn't always common practice. It's quick and easy reading and on my personal "Top 10 List of Great Book." I refer to it in nearly every Seminar I present, because it's basic philosophy motivates people...catch them doing something right and tell them about it. This book is simple, yet very powerful. I'm still amazed how few people raise their hands when I ask in my Seminars, "How many people have read 'The One Minute Manager.'" This is must reading for all leaders.

If you're into the straight-forward approach, this book will drive you nuts. It's written in a mentor/student past experiences story structure. Comparable to a Chicken Soup of the Managerial Soul book, but without the emotional involvement. After reading a few chapters of "then the young man asks the seasoned managerial veteran... so are you saying respect gets results?", it's gets a little old. The technique behind the story makes it worth reading the very few pages this book is comprised of.

After 20 years of getting my MBA and working in the consultingfield for just that long, I can tell you that this book is way tooartificial and misleading. I wish this book will not paint the wrong picture of management. It over-simplifies human nature and the art of management. If you believe this is the way to run a business, a factory or a classroom, you are dead wrong. For general readers, Cohen's book "The Art of the Leader" is probably worth your while.

Do you have a good critical thought process? If not, then perhaps you should not read this book. There are a few decent ideas in it, however, I found a great recommendation from another reader's review: Read Dale Carnegie and Napolean Hill for more useful advice, techniques, and thought processes. Dealing with people is an art, not a science, and needs to be based upon an honest desire to assist others. Carnegie and Hill can help to develop those ideals.
