Here is the next step in the revolutionary, simple, and uniquely effective system that is changing how the world runs business.
One Page management helps you implement the principles in The One Minute Manager. Key to success is access to information. But busy managers are drowning in a sea of useless data. One Page Management Teaches a simple screening system that reduces the glut of memos, printouts, and files tothree one-page reports, giving managers a complete view of their organization. Achievers become visible, problems are short-circuited, and managers gain control over their own performance. As in theOne Minute Manager, the system unfolds in a simple parable: an executive turns around a floundering company with the ingenious help of “the Infoman.”
Published in hardcover in 1986 and in paperback in 1989, One Page Management is available nationwide and has been translated into twelve languages. Updated to address today’s business concerns, it works for any business – from large corporation to start-up.

By the end of the process the reader will experience a dramatic transformation: their life will be renewed and their relationships at home and work will be vastly improved.
