If you read the first book and had a nagging feeling that it didn't really explain the full ins and outs of the one minute management concept (i.e. after agreeing the objectives, is the next step really just to wait and either shake their had or kick them in the ass?) Then this is the book for you as it talks much more about the subtle steps that make up the process (such as coaching and reviewing) that I feel were mentioned a little too briefly in the first book. In my opinion a good follow-up to the first book, but information that really should have been included as a second chapter in the first book. (A case of 'one book for the price of two' rather than the more traditional 'two books for the price of one'). But still well worth a read.

Almost everyone who reads the One Minute Manager loves the book, both for its simplicity and clarity. One minute goal-setting, praisings and reprimands soon abound. Gradually, all of this good communication can begin to tail off.
The One Minute Manager process needs to become a new habit and to expand the skills both of the one minute manager and the people who work for her/him. That's where Putting the One Minute Manager to Work comes into play.
This excellent sequel to the One Minute Manager provides more guidance on how to combine goal-setting, praisings and reprimands. This is combined in the Price System. Price stands for Pinpoint where performance should be improved, then Record the current performance, Involve the person involved in setting goals and how reviews and coaching will occur, Coach people to improve results, and Evaluate the performance to reinforce the good and replace the not so good.
This is basically the classic Skinner model on behavior modification, and it works well.
The key limitation of the approach is that it does not go far enough to determine where and how much performance should be improved, learn what is possible, and use best practices to transfer knowledge.
In terms of the 2,000 percent solution process, this just covers part of the first two of eight steps. But it does cover what it covers well.
If this process improves you from where you are today, by all means use it. If you are already a great communicator and motivator, then you are beyond this book.
My guess is that almost everyone in their first managerial role would benefit from this book. Communications are the biggest source of stalled performance in most companies, and this book provides solid information for overcoming that stall.
If your company has other stalls, like avoiding the unattractive, disbelief, misconceptions about customers, helplessness, and so forth, you will need additional help. But with improved communications skills, you will be in a good position to attack those stalls as well.

Someone recommended the one minute manager books so I decided to invest in a few. They all just make perfect sense and the putting the one minute manager to work is great to read after you have read the original as it gives really easy tips on how to get into the one minute mindset. My staff have noticed the difference and I am less stressed and happy at work. I lent my staff the book to read so they are fully on board too.
