A ground-breaking book on management which teaches simple, yet highly effective techniques to help in becoming an efficient manager, The One Minute Manager: Increase Productivity, Profits And Your Own Prosperity is a bestselling book by Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson. Summary Of The Book The brief narrative of The One Minute Manager: Increase Productivity, Profits And Your Own Prosperity demonstrates three simple, albeit pragmatic, techniques that can be used as very effective management tools, such as One Minute Goals, One Minute Reprimands and One Minute Praisings. One Minute Goals applies to meetings between an employer and an employee - the book stresses on the fact that meeting of this nature must be brief, to-the-point, and unambiguous, leaving no room for confusion-borne errors. One Minute Reprimands refers to the fact that all aberrations must be reprimanded effectively and immediately, followed by a reassurance that the rebuke was not personal, but was for the employee’s performance instead. The last secret technique is the One Minute Appraisal, which means praising an employee for any job well-executed, or any well-made decision, laying emphasis on the reason behind the praise. The One Minute Manager: Increase Productivity, Profits And Your Own Prosperity also uses excerpts and examples from several studies in the field of behavioral science and medicine that point towards the validity of the aforementioned techniques. These tried-and-tested steps can lead to increased productivity, personal happiness and job satisfaction and have been followed by innumerable businesses and Fortune 500 companies for over twenty years. Over 13 million copies of this international bestseller have sold till date, and it has been translated into 37 languages, making it one of the most popular books in the field of management.

The authors of the book Kenneth Hartley Blanchard and Spencer Johnson have briefly explained few methods of management that are based on few studies in medicine and behavioural sciences. The book talks about three practical management techniques such as one minute goal setting, one minute praising and one minute reprimand. These three simple yet effective techniques could do wonders for both individual and organisational growth.

The one minute goal setting technique says that each member of a team is essential to fulfil the set goals. For instance, in order to complete daily, weekly, monthly or yearly tasks, team effort is needed, and for that, individual effort matters a lot.

One minute praising technique is all about appreciation. According to this technique a manager must reward a team member for completing a specific task efficiently. Plus, a manager could spend a minute to acknowledge a hardworking employee.

The last technique is one-minute reprimand that says that the manager has to give feedback to few members who committed mistakes in their tasks. But the feedback must be given in polite manner so that their interpersonal relations are not affected.

By following these three effective techniques, a manager may grow individually as well as lead to organisational growth in long term. Written in simple, easy-to-understand language, the book can help the readers understand how simple changes can actually work in real management situations.
