'A survey of the reading habits of managers found that though they buy books by the likes of Tom Peters for display purposes, the one management book they have actually read from cover to cover is The Goal.' The Economist 'Goldratt's system, in essence, forces production managers and workers alike to coordinate their work-with an underlying principle in mind: that 'bottlenecks'...are what ultimately constrain the manufacturing environment.' Business Week 'This theory provided a persuasive solution for factories struggling with production delays and low revenues.' Harvard Business Review 'Like Mrs. Fields and her cookies, The Goal was too tasty to remain obscure. Companies began buying big batches and management schools included it in their curriculums.' Fortune Magazine 'Anybody who considers himself a manager should rush out, buy and devour this book immediately. If you are the only one in your place to have read it, your progress along the path to the top may suddenly accelerate...one of the most outstanding business books I have ever encountered.' Punch Magazine 'Goal readers are now doing the best work of their lives.' Success Magazine 'The Goal has always been essential reading for those looking to eliminate bottlenecks from their business. The latest edition also shows how its ideas have been applied in real life.' Works Management ' Written in the style of a novel it treats the subject of ongoing personal development in a unique way. although the scene is set in a US manufacturing company it can easily be transferred to your business. You will learn as you read this story, recognizing the changes you need to make as you progress. Definitely a book to read...' The Hairdresser --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

It's great if you own a manufacturing company or have a production plant.
If you're a tech startup or SaaS company, it will be good read but difficult to apply.
It's written as a novel which allows for easy reading. I like the analogies used to depict the theories in easy to understand examples. Read morePublished 18 months ago by William Hutzul
