Since it was first introduced in the multi-million-copy best seller The Goal, Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt's Theory of Constraints (TOC) has emerged as one of the most flexible and effective approaches to management and problem solving in the corporate world.

It was very nice to hear Mr. Eliyahu himself talking about what is beyond the Goal. His ideas about how things are working in the IT field and what is the value added of systems like CRM, ERP etc, are a great listening.

As a closure for his books I recommend to listen what's beyond the Goal.

A breakthrough solution is exposed when some unexpected events force Caroline and Paul, a married couple working for their family's retail business, to make a few small changes in the way things are done. A solution that propels the family's regional chain of stores into a very profitable, rapidly growing, international enterprise. If there is a hint of Jonah, from The Goal, reappearing in this novel, it is Henry, the soon-to-retire president and majority owner of the company who logically states that, "if you do not deal directly with the core problem, don't expect significant improvement."

Same principles from The Goal applied in the retailing business. You will enjoy it, as usually there is a story that will keep you captivated.

A definitive audiobook for any CEO - first time or otherwise - of a high-growth company. While big company CEOs are usually groomed for the job for years, startup CEOs aren't - and they're often young and relatively inexperienced in business in general.

If you think this is a book for leadership you are wrong. You can find a lot of advices and great ideas for management. I started to use some of them. It's really a field guide. I enjoyed reading it and also I've search Matt's blog for more posts and ideas.

Using the unique business-novel format, It's Not Luck continues the story of The Goal protagonist Alex Rogo as he navigates a new set of challenges facing the now over-diversified and under-profitable UniCo, where he has risen to the rank of division manager.

If you enjoyed the story from The Goal you can read about the next adventure in It's not luck. Not the same magic as the first book but definitely a good reading. Convinced me to buy another of his books.
