Book Summary
When Holly G. Green was a young manager, she read a book titled�The One Minute Manager�by Kenneth Blanchard and Spencer Johnson. The refreshing simplicity of the book�s three basic principles continued to impress her over the course of her career: give employees clear direction; discuss goals frequently and change them as needed; give employees feedback about how their performance measures against the goals and �separate the performance from the person.� However, despite their fundamental veracity, those basic approaches need updating to remain effective today. Organizations are not the structured hierarchies they once were, technology has revolutionized how business is done, the American work force now includes four generations, and global boundaries have blurred.� In�More Than a Minute, Green draws on the basics of her early management training and refreshes the principles for the 21st century. She argues that communicating company goals and strategies, establishing a corporate culture that nurtures them, and providing feedback to employees are �more than nice thing[s] to do.� They have become crucial to a company�s competitive advantage, alignment, and sustained success.
