With a new foreword by Ken BlanchardHow management can effectively rid themselves of `monkeys' - other people's responsibilities that cling to them and prevent them managing efficiently.This book explains in simple-minded if abstract terms how to achieve a balance between supervision and delegation for reduced tension and improved productivity in the workplace.`There is a high correlation between self-reliance and morale,' stress the authors. With humour and logic they describe the delicate business of assigning monkeys to the right masters and keeping them healthy, i.e., fed and cared for: `... if monkeys are managed properly, you don't have to manage people so much.'
