4.0 out of 5 stars Dry reading but does exectly the job I need Oct. 1 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm in the process of making a DBR scheduling program, with the help of a consultant of course. But everything that needs to be implemented and everything the consultant and I discuss has to do with something referenced in that book. I would add that any person knowledgeable in the field of TOC and DBR are usually well reversed in anything you will find in the book. The Haystack Syndrome is a bible in this field.

2.0 out of 5 stars One good book? Jan. 22 2003
Format:Hardcover
"TELL ME HOW YOU MEASURE ME, AND I WILL TELL YOU HOW I WILL BEHAVE."
OK, we expect you to publish on your theory frequently.
Um, but I have nothing new to say. The theory was only big enough for one book.
We won't consider you an expert if you have only one good book - the first one.
OK. I'll rehash everything about every two years.

4.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate planning thinking Nov. 7 2002
Format:Hardcover
This book gives you the best guidelines to the planning and scheduling world. It is easy readable, but be careful. The theory looks easy, but it isn't. Read again and again, and the value of the book increases.
Specially the last section is dynamite.

4.0 out of 5 stars Data versus Information June 13 2002
Format:Hardcover
Goldratt plunges directly to the heart of the matter. Decision makers need information that will help them understand the likely results following from their choices. Most managerial accounting systems offer (at best) a glance at where an organization has been. Beginning with understanding the questions decision makers must answer to make effective decisions, Goldratt moves to how one might go about building an INFORMATION (NOT data) system which can offer up the answers to those questions.
Unfortunately, the valuable result will be heavy going for many readers. Particularly, the more narrowly one has specialized, the less likely it is that one will have the breadth of understanding needed to grasp the whole without help from one's associates. Team reading with an IT person, an accounting person, a manufacturing person, and an executive in the team should add value for all readers and their organization.

4.0 out of 5 stars People "get" TOC at different levels June 8 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book separates those readers who get TOC at a deep level from those who don't. It's not easy reading because it makes you think -- hard at times. But if you stick with it and really comprehend it, the last section is just as valuable as the first two.
