Since it was first introduced in the multi-million-copy best seller The Goal, Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt's Theory of Constraints (TOC) has emerged as one of the most flexible and effective approaches to management and problem solving in the corporate world. Now taught in business schools everywhere and successfully used in companies of all sizes around the world, TOC has changed the way a generation of professionals maximize profits and resources by focusing on and clearing the constraints that get in their way.

In Beyond The Goal, Dr. Goldratt elaborates on his profoundly influential theories in a straightforward, practical, and pragmatic presentation designed to help you put these powerful ideas to valuable use. Speaking with the brilliance and insight that has made him a sought-after teacher and top consultant, Dr. Goldratt addresses some of the most asked-about elements of understanding and applying TOC, including:

  • The basic assumptions of TOC
  • Why management assumptions must be changed to obtain lasting, bottom-line results
  • What is necessary and sufficient to establish a foundation for future success
  • The rules of operations, project management, and distribution
  • How to implement TOC as a holistic approach to continuous improvement

Whether you're new to Dr. Goldratt's philosophy, or a TOC veteran looking for fresh strategies for turning turn concepts into consequences, Beyond The Goal makes it abundantly clear why joining the Theory of Constraints revolution has never been easier, or more important for your company and your career.

    " I read this a few years ago. It had some useful concepts, and the story made it less dry; however like most of these kinds of books that are trying to explain a message wrapped in a story, the story and especially the dialogue are weak. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 4/12/2011

    " This seems to get recommended a lot. It's a really good starting point into the whole systems thinking / lean topic. "

    " Good book considering I had to read it for work... Great if you work n a manufacturing environment or service based business.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seth | 3/25/2011

    " Best "management" book I have read. Great real world examples of Theory of Constraints in action and the novel format works well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 3/17/2011

    " Pretty technical book but pretty easy story to read. Using operational examples this applies to much of business... If you can make the transition it's an awesome read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 3/15/2011

    " The book is closely coupled to the manufacturing industry, but many of the principles addressed are almost universally applicable. There were several times when it seemed like the author was describing execution problems we have in my software engineering department. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 3/3/2011

    " Not sure why I picked this up- it is a novel in format but a business school textbook in reality. That being said, I enjoyed it as something different and have implemented one of the techniques on my children. Seriously. Kind of. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles | 2/28/2011

    " I don't remember if/how much swearing this book has, but it's a manufacturing textbook so I had to read it. It does do a great job helping you understand efficiencies and throughput. "
