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.

  2. The history of requirements for quality systems, or at least some elements of quality systems, goes back to pre-historic times. Almost 4,000 years ago, in the 18th century B.C., Hammurabi, the king of Babylonia, developed the first recorded code of law. The Hammurabi’s Code is a collection of laws and edicts, and is considered the earliest comprehensive legal standard. The code is engraved on a block of black diorite nearly 2.4 meters, or 8 feet high. A team of French archaeologists unearthed this block in Susa, Iraq, formerly ancient Elam during the winter of 1901-1902. The block, broken into three pieces, has been restored and now rests in the Louvre Museum in Paris.
