About Eliyahu M. Goldratt
Eliyahu M. Goldratt (1947–2011) was an educator, author, scientist, philosopher, and business leader. But he was, first and foremost, a thinker who provoked others to think. Often characterized as unconventional, stimulating, and “a slayer of sacred cows,” Dr. Goldratt exhorted his audience to examine and reassess their business practices with a fresh, new vision. In addition to his pioneering work in business management and education, he held patents in a number of areas ranging from medical devices to drip irrigation and temperature sensors.
