Publisher's Summary

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.

With an engaging voice and dynamic plot, Goldratt shows how to apply his Theory of Constraints (TOC) to achieve ongoing improvement in sales and marketing, inventory control, and production distribution. In addition, he introduces techniques for successful conflict resolution on both a business and a personal level.

Good story. Ok performance

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.

Good, but not as good as the original

overall good audio book. what is really frustrating is the narrator speaking for all participants. hearing his voice as Alex Rogo as well as his 14 year old daughter, wife, or coworkers makes it hard to follow who is who. tools and techniques could have been explained better.

Needs extra voices

Would've been nice if a female narrator read the female parts, it was difficult to keep up with which character was speaking sometimes.

Excellent excellent story, well performed, and insightful as to how to gain a competitive advantage

I am a manager in an organization that is undergoing a significant transformation. I listened to this book to help me to understand how to methodically develop the competitive advantage for my part of organization. The approach of assessing the customers needs and developing a strategy based on these as not new. This was covered in marketing and other classes in my MBA. (Recognize that when this book was published, this was not necessarily a standard approach.) More important to me, is the methodical if then approached used in formulating a cloud and the discussion of how to go through and restructure the product you were delivering as part of the overall package.-product, distribution, terms, etc. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to restructure and understand their competitive advantage.

Great follow on from The Goal.

If you have listened to the first instalment this is a must to carry on the story.

Some great ideas of how to structure thinking to tackle problems within marketing!

not suitable for English learning

Because the file is offered as one big file without chapter.
You have no choice but to listen the story from the beginning.
And it is a low-quality sound, too.

I would like to recommend you to buy CD.
