He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree from Tel Aviv University and his Masters of Science, and Doctorate of Philosophy from Bar-Ilan University. In addition to his pioneering work in Business Management and education, he holds patents in a number of areas ranging from medical devices to drip irrigation to temperature sensors

I've been a big admirer of Dr. Goldratt ever since I had to read The Goal in business school; I'm amazed how often his ideas pop up in the workplace, and how many applications they continue to have in a wide variety of settings. As much as I consider The Goal one of the most important books I've ever read, however, I must admit its fictional format has made it a little tricky to refer back to or to recommend to others.

That's why I'm delighted to hear Dr. Goldratt talk about his ideas in such a straightforward manner in Beyond the Goal. Instead of being another business novel, this is a far more conventional presentation of his philosophy-a great way to answer some of the questions I've had since reading The Goal. If you're familiar with Dr. Goldratt's work, Beyond the Goal will help you sharpen your understanding and put it to use. And if you've never read The Goal, this is a great introduction to one of the most influential business theories of our time.

This is a must-listen for any business listener!

Format: Audio CD
In the goal we saw that there was a light at the end of the tunnel, or a bright blue sky above the "dark clouds of reality". Yet, I fully agree with those that have said that the explanations on TOC are clearer on the works of Dr. Goldratt's disciples.

But then you listen to this wonderful work and then you understand the philosophy behind TOC. He is inquisitive on the current reality to the point where you have to think hard, again and again to see the real constrains come about. No, its not phylosophy of science, because when you are just discerning through the clouds of reality, he hits you with the "show me the money!?!?", why are we even thinking this way if we are not going to get the benefits??!! and Im only in cd number 3 !!!

For those of you who have had some exposure to TOC and believe it can make a difference, I would recommended this cd book.

This is my first, but won't be my last, experience with Coach in a Box. Dr. G. is in his usual form (obviously speaking to a live audience) but this material, in this form, is probably not for those uninitiated to TOC. An outstanding supplement to William Dettmer's Systems book on TOC.

This audio book is not a story, but still compelling as Goldratt walks your through his thinking processes. Very enjoyable to listen to.

I could not praise this audio book any higher. Although the material is a re-cap of several of Dr. Goldratt's other books, it captures something his books can not: The pure emotion, the uniqueness of his voice, and his unusual sense of humor which repeatedly brought a smile to my face.Save this one to read after you have read some of his other books, and then go back and read his books again.

After finishing this set of 8 audio CDs, I immediately went back and began re-reading "The Goal" (for the third time I might add.) I am reading "The Goal" in a whole new light, after listening to "Beyond The Goal". Now as I read sections where "Jonah" is speaking, I hear Dr. Goldratt's voice as I read. I hear the inflection in his voice, and can even tell when he snickers at things he has said. This is a must listen, but only after reading "The Goal" and preferably a few others.

Opening with a tour-de-force of insightful simplicity, Beyond The Goal goes on to explore many aspects of business activity with Dr. Goldratt's custom disciplined thinking. Though I have not come through his excellent speaking with a clear understanding of the Theory Of Constraints, I heard many other ideas and had a pleasant time doing so. He covers a straight-forward process for implementing TOC within an hesitant organisation, as well as providing a brilliant technique for validating any effort to apply new technology in business.

This guy is a stinkin' genius. The concepts he lays out in this book make so much sense. I've already lent it out, and can't wait to get it back to listen to it again. He finds a way to lay out some pretty deep thoughts on TOC, but makes them easy to understand. I am constantly using some of his ideas in my meetings specifically around the number of metrics needed and changing the rules of business. The only problem I have is getting the rest of the company to understand it.
