Book Description

Sept. 1 2005 Your Coach in a Box
In his phenomenal bestseller "The Goal", Eliyahu M. Goldratt introduced a radical concept known as the Theory of Constraints. Now taught in hundreds of business schools, and successfully used in thousands of companies, Goldratt's "TOC" has emerged as one of the most powerful approaches to operational improvements of all time. In "Beyond the Goal", Goldratt elaborates on his profoundly influential theories in a straightforward, practical, and pragmatic manner. In his only non fiction retail audio, Goldratt discusses how to implement his ideas and addresses some of the most asked-about elements, including: the basic assumptions of TOC; why management assumptions must be changed to obtain lasting, bottom-line results; what is necessary and sufficient to establish a foundation for future success; the rules of Operations, Project Management, and Distribution; and how to implement TOC as a holistic approach to continuous improvement.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOW I UNDERSTAND THEORY OF CONSTRAINTS! Oct. 2 2005
By audio maven - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've been a big admirer of Dr. Goldratt ever since I had to read The Goal in business school; I'm amazed how often his ideas pop up in the workplace, and how many applications they continue to have in a wide variety of settings. As much as I consider The Goal one of the most important books I've ever read, however, I must admit its fictional format has made it a little tricky to refer back to or to recommend to others.

That's why I'm delighted to hear Dr. Goldratt talk about his ideas in such a straightforward manner in Beyond the Goal. Instead of being another business novel, this is a far more conventional presentation of his philosophy-a great way to answer some of the questions I've had since reading The Goal. If you're familiar with Dr. Goldratt's work, Beyond the Goal will help you sharpen your understanding and put it to use. And if you've never read The Goal, this is a great introduction to one of the most influential business theories of our time.

This is a must-listen for any business listener!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightment to TOC March 10 2006
By Humberto Mejia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In the goal we saw that there was a light at the end of the tunnel, or a bright blue sky above the "dark clouds of reality". Yet, I fully agree with those that have said that the explanations on TOC are clearer on the works of Dr. Goldratt's disciples.

But then you listen to this wonderful work and then you understand the philosophy behind TOC. He is inquisitive on the current reality to the point where you have to think hard, again and again to see the real constrains come about. No, its not phylosophy of science, because when you are just discerning through the clouds of reality, he hits you with the "show me the money!?!?", why are we even thinking this way if we are not going to get the benefits??!! and Im only in cd number 3 !!!

For those of you who have had some exposure to TOC and believe it can make a difference, I would recommended this cd book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value March 21 2007
By S. Neal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is my first, but won't be my last, experience with Coach in a Box. Dr. G. is in his usual form (obviously speaking to a live audience) but this material, in this form, is probably not for those uninitiated to TOC. An outstanding supplement to William Dettmer's Systems book on TOC.

This audio book is not a story, but still compelling as Goldratt walks your through his thinking processes. Very enjoyable to listen to.
