"A survey of the reading habits of managers found that though they buy books by the likes of Tom Peters for display purposes, the one management book they have actually read from cover to cover is The Goal." -- The Economist
"Anybody who considers himself a manager should rush out, buy and devour this book immediately. If you are the only one in your place to have read it, your progress along the path to the top may suddenly accelerate...one of the most outstanding business books I have ever encountered." --Punch Magazine
"Like Mrs. Fields and her cookies, The Goal was too tasty to remain obscure. Companies began buying big batches and management schools included it in their curriculums." --Fortune Magazine
"This theory provided a persuasive solution for factories struggling with production delays and low revenues." --Harvard Business Review --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I plan keep it at work and suggest it for co-workers.
My husband also is a machine operator and where he works they have all read this and do many things referenced in the book. He is planning to read it.
I now know why a previous boss would say "Let's find our Herbie". 17+ years in the industry and I had no clue until I read this.
This book introduced the Theory of Constraints to the world of business and has made its way to B-Schools as a textbook. Eliyahu Goldratt has done an excellent job in explaining his theory using a novel-style writing. It is a story of a struggling plant manager to improve his plant's performance and save it from closure. The expert in this story provoked the main character to "derive his solutions by supplying the question marks instead of exclamation marks".
Recommended read for every professional in manufacturing.
The Goal is one of the first business management books I studied early in my career. It changed how I approach value-adding processes. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn how to better manage and control the processes they are responsible for.
If you want to apply what you learned in the Goal to your work area, the CHITA program will walk you and your team, step-by-step, through a continuous improvement transformation that is fun and very rewarding. CHITA program books are available through Amazon.com. –Paul Brainard
