A young, untested team of problem solvers challenged with saving their company moves from board room to classroom in search of answers - and finds them through lively, open discourse with their innovative professor. This gripping, fast-paced business novel does for project management what Eliyahu M. Goldratt's other novels have done for production and marketing.

Good book. Continues to provide insight based on TOC. I wish it would explain more in-depth, like The Goal did. At this point, I feel my next steps are to take a class in TOC Project Management (CCPM).

I am sad there isn't another audiobook in the series available yet.

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.

The story so good, but unlike The Goal, this story requires a little more work to follow. Without seeing the diagrams and not having them explained in full detail, it takes a bit of imagination to know what the characters are working on. An accompanying PDF would be great!!!

The narration is mediocre. Every character is whiny. And Alex sounds perpetually angry. I preferred the narration in The Goal significantly more, but the story still shines through. It's not grating, but not as good as it could be.
