The story focused on manufacturing with long descriptions of productivity, A eliahu work credited for inspiring the genre of “leadership novels”, including some of my fav’s “The Phoenix Project” IT flavor and “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team”. Seems quite practical and valuable in just that application. And every startup needs to be moving fast – and not just at building – we need to be doing build, measure, learn as fast as we can.

G continued improvement, it turns traditional toldratt and productivity practices upside down and soon outperforms all other plants in its industry. Subordinate everything else to the above decision.

It seems the author wanted to increase the page count to make it more publishable. I kind of got lost there. Having said that, towards the end the book just drags you. Goldratt has the idea of focusing on a constraint and redesigning the business around it. Overall, read the book, stick to the novel and hopefully you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

La Meta : Eliyahu M Goldratt :

The first addendum is a little piece that basically confirms other people have got this stuff to work. It’s crisp and simple prose drags the reader along and I certainly sympathised with the characters within. I liked the story approach of this mega as, lets be honest, so many business books are boring.

I feel this is the story of my factory, like the millions across the globe have felt. An example of the realism of the thinking view spoiler [at least from my own point of view hide spoiler ] in The Ccox is that at one point the protagonist eliahu faced with the possibility of a price war – competing with other manufacturers on the basis of price alone – but this is something that he doesn’t want to do.

The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement by Eliyahu M. Goldratt

In the vast sea of management books out there, there are only a few, and this book certainly has to qualify as the pinnacle of those books.
