Since 1960, over one million people have been trained in our practice of management. The MMT class teaches you, the manager, to leverage your management time, and the time of your team, to get more done.
Harvard Business Review published Managing Management Time: Who’s Got the Monkey? in 1974, by Bill Oncken, Jr.. The article, an edited excerpt of the MMT 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.
