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!
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.
I took a lot of notes about this audio CD. It is an awesome presentation.
Beyond the Goal, at least my version, sounds like 8 class lectures.
Though the contents are interesting it's hard to follow along with only the audio and not have the visual support at your fingertips as well. The topics are interesting. The first chapter which went into the origins of MRP and evolution of ERP was fascinating but from there the topics were less engaging. I also found the hystrionic lecturing style a bit tiring. There were many tantalizing ideas but I didn't get enough meat to really dig in and hold onto much except the first chapter on origins of MRP and ERP. Some of the stories were a bit drawn out for a small point like physicist and simplicity and other points were just reference without enough to explain them For example Rope, Buffer , Drum was mentioned but without previously knowing and reading about it there wasn't enough for someone to grasp the concept.
I would really feather have had this material written out. Wishing there was a good academic book on TOC and the related subjects. Interested in recommendations.
