"Theory of Constraints is basically an understanding of where your bottlenecks are, slow points, or where you are capacity limited and working to optimize that. Well told in a story format, but slightly outdated in that it uses a manufactureing setting vs. today's tech-focused setting."
"The bulk of this books was basically a story, stepping through a crisis, the things that were done to see a changing event through to the end. In reality, I wasn't a huge fan of this as if you view it as a case study, it is a single case study with limited inputs and thus a bit abstract from reality."
"More of a characterization of how some people work, and a small experiment on how to structure that. Not a great read, but not a bad one either given the brevity of the book. If you can find it cheap, otherwise, this should be somewhat lower on your list of priority reads"
"After reading the Dysfunctions, I thought I'd give this book a read. Again, in story format. I guess after I've read as many as I have now, there isn't a lot new, but this one felt like a recap. However, concise and to the point, short and sweet for leaders with not a lot of time."
"If your company doesn't understand the application of metrics, KPIs, and overall objectives as a way to drive performance, this is a nice soft introduction while explaining some of the underlying behaviours"
