The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement - 30th Anniversary Edition

In this intriguing business novel, which illustrates state-of-the-art economic theory, Alex Rogo is a UniCo plant manager whose factory and marriage are failing. To revitalize the plant, he follows piecemeal advice from an elusive former college professor who teaches, for example, that reduction in the efficiency of some plant operations may make the entire operation more productive.

Publisher's Summary

In this intriguing business novel, which illustrates state-of-the-art economic theory, Alex Rogo is a UniCo plant manager whose factory and marriage are failing. To revitalize the plant, he follows piecemeal advice from an elusive former college professor who teaches, for example, that reduction in the efficiency of some plant operations may make the entire operation more productive. Alex's attempts to find the path to profitability and to engage his employees in the struggle involve the listener; and thankfully the authors' economic models, including a game with matchsticks and bowls, are easy to understand. Although some characters are as anonymous as the goods manufactured in the factory, others ring true. In addition, the tender story of Alex and his wife's separation and reconciliation makes a touching contrast to the rest of the book. Recommended for anyone with an interest in the state of the American economy.

    Story
    "A great process book with a great story too"
    Would you listen to The Goal again? Why?

    Yes. there is a lot much information in this book and it is hard to learn everything in one listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The interesting story about Alex (the main character) while still teaching you valuable information.


    What does uncredited bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The emotion of the story with the different actors' voices and sound effects. The way they produced the audio version of the book made the story even more interesting.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. It is 11 hrs and there is a lot of information you will want to take time to digest it all.
