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

I kind eloyahu got lost there. Also interested in how Goldratt thought his theory could apply to relationships. Quotes from The Goal: This sounds obvious and intuitive, however it’s actually much harder than most people think, and easy to get wrong.

I see that bottlenecks exist all around us, not just in manufacturing. We move forward in finances, careers, projects, etc. Not only does it introduce the Theory of Constraints, but does it so as if ToC was invented by the main characters themselves: I was never any good at Maths in school and so it was from this book that I learnt that when looking at figures if the answer looks wrong, what you need to do is think about the assumptions rather than just check the calculation.

By contrast I notice from time to time the adverts for a UK furniture store which promise the purchaser that they will have nothing to pay for a year, four years free credit, or even both. There maybe is the key, the world of The Goallike our own, operates in a particular historical and sociological context, rather than a fantasy in which economic growth “to infinity and beyond”, in the immortal words of Buzz Lightyear, is the solid basis in which all assumptions are rooted.

Did inventory levels go down? Realizing that those machines should not take a lunch break, etc. Decide how to exploit the bottlenecks. It seems to me Dr. What particularly appealed to me, as a practitioner of process modelling and simulation, was the way that these techniques were used to bring about significant business improvements. If a manager does not know how to answer those three questions, is he or she entitled to be called manager?


In addition to his pioneering work in business management and education, Dr. The book deserves 5 for its place in business history, and I flip to 4 for it because it will communicate on a general-purpose level far better than a book like “Phoenix. The book is mainly talking about theory of constraints and how to deal with it. It seems the author wanted to increase the page count to make it more publishable. The power and value of such techniques was ably demonstrated and should encourage many more companies to put them into practice.

Goldratt has the idea of focusing on a constraint and redesigning the business around it. I was pleased to see it on my new boss’s desk!

If you’re in IT, “Phoenix” will speak more clearly to your situation and will translate more directly to your work and world. The whole time you are learning the scientific method behind Theory Of Constraints and are being taught the Socratic Method of teaching.

Oct 03, Imran rated it it was amazing. I wouldn’t call this book well-written by any stretch, but using it in place of a business textbook would be solid as it at least has a story of interest to follow. People should be working full time right? This book is fantastic. Goldratt holds patents in a number of areas ranging from medical devices to drip irrigation to temperature sensors. The tale and it’s aftermath are both familiar and it makes a very pleasant change from the method of delivery many contemporary books espouse.

I have never been so excited to finish a book in my entire life. It sounds like “cost accounting” fit into that bucket. There are some really gendered and racially-insensitive notes that are likely injected to reflect the book’s imagined audience, a factory foreman.

While five stars normally for me would mean ‘life-changing,’ in this case I can’t resist because of a rare and wonderful balance between enjoyment, levity, and insight. This book is like subpar fan-fic for operations enthusiasts. May 04, Sergey Shishkin rated it it was amazing.

Goldratt was an educator, author, physicist, philosopher and business leader, but first and foremost, he was a thinker who provoked others to think.

On the brink of failure, Alex seeks help from his former professor Jonah, who through the Socratic method makes Alex figure out what’s amiss in the plant and puts him on the path to discovery.

Each problem is broken down into its simplest components so that the real priorities are easily identified and dealt with.

But a system can only run at the speed of the slowest bottleneck, so non-bottlenecks will by definition have spare cycles, and it’s important to keep them open for the important work and not fill it up with unimportant stuff that will bog them down when you actually need them on the important stuff.

I very nearly loved this book. One of the biggest takeaways from this book is that it’s incredibly important to set the right goals to manage a complex operation. The book explained how a plant manager, Alex almost fail his company. Jun 23, Pedro rated it liked it Shelves: I know people who really poo-poo “business fiction” and many poorly written ones may be out there, but with The Goal, the story is so real and the critical thinking skills are so prevalent that you cannot help but get pulled into the story.
