The class will reference the work of Ken Blanchard and Bill Oncken in their book The One Minute Manager Meets The Monkey.

The article, an edited excerpt of the Managing Management Time™ seminar, has gone on to become one of the two most requested reprints in the history of the Review.
The training summarized in the article is sometimes called the “Monkey Management” seminar.
