Good for a business life

by HeatherAshley on Apr 11, 2008

I am a Senior in the College of Business majoring in Business Management, I actually never sit down and read a book ever! When I received this book in the mail I thought that it was going to be a complete bore, but as I sat down to read it I was amazed. This book had more information other than just about business, it also tells about his personal trials and tribulations, and about how to fix the problems in his plant because he is the manager. He also relates the problems of the plant to everyday life activities so that if you don't understand the business lingo, then this will help those people. I was really impressed with this book, and for me being a business student of management I know this book will help me in later life in my career. I encourage everyone to read this book to help problem solving in personal life, business, and with co-workers. Also for the business students that are going to have to read this book, don't be discouraged about having to read this book. But be happy that you will learn and enjoy this book. Hope you all agree with my review. Thanks for taking the time to read it.

A Classic That Deserves Every Manager's Attention

by TGriffin on Jan 9, 2008

I have bought and given away several copies of this book. I cannot give a higher endorsement. The format of a novel (one of the first in this genre) makes the book an easy read and puts the lessons taught in a highly digestible format. I have used the principles multiple times to focus effort and influence change, train and encourage numerous staff. The book provides means to develop a common understanding and vocabulary to allow anyone to give voice to wisdom and to act in sound business logic. Make sure that you do not miss the point that the issue is more about management?s thinking ? not the environment. This is the Operations application for the overarching Theory of Constraints proposed by Dr. Goldratt.

THE SCIENCE OF BUSINESS STARTS HERE

by motasim on Mar 26, 2007

Here is a book that pioneers new thinking in Business Mangaement. This Book gave birth to a remarkable new Set of Managment Gudelines- Theory of Constraints. Goldratt explains his theory (now a valid and widely accepted technique than merely a theory) in the form of a story. This book is highly remmended for Students of Business Aministration, Engineers, Operations Management Personnel, Executives. The concepts narrated in this Book will cahnge the way you look at Operations Management, Production Scheduling.
