Philip Marris's curator insight, January 19, 2014 12:48 PM

Martha Begley runs a website "Business Online learning". She did a survey using LinkedIn and other sources and identified Eli Goldratt's "The Goal" as the most recommended business book. This is remarkable because her survey was not in the TOC community but mostly in the Lean Six Sigma and operational excellence community. 20% of those surveyed recommended it.

 

Some of the data came from LinkedIn discussions such as this one "Which book changed the way you work" (where the Goal is omnipresent): http://www.linkedin.com/groups/Which-book-changed-way-you-37987.S.5820979082006904835#!

Martha Schade's curator insight, January 19, 2014 2:27 PM

If you would like to read an excellent book that will change the way you will look at your work and thinking in the future, then this is it!

"Look Before You Lean" book review | Knowledge Jolt | Jack Vinson

"Look Before You Lean" book review | Knowledge Jolt | Jack Vinson | Theory of Constraints | Scoop.it

[…] It’s a look at a Lean implementation from an employee in a company going through a Lean initiative, rather than from the eyes of a consultant or maybe the internal champion of such an implementation. He’s kept himself anonymous because he is rather negative as to the thinking of the corporate leaders, and he is particularly negative about the way the consultants approached the project. […] He’s saying, “Think.” and “Don’t do it this way." […] The story isn’t all negative, […] He pins the blame on both the company leads for abdicating their thinking to the consultants. […] suggestions or food for thought […] Give this book a read if you are interested in change management or in the various continuous improvement methodologies like Lean, Theory of Constraints and others.  Or if your company is thinking about implementing one of these approaches.

Buffer management, therefore, represents a crucial attribute of the theory of constraints. There are many ways to apply buffers, but the most often used is a visual system of designating the buffer in three colours: green (okay), yellow (caution) and red (action required).

TOC Practioners Alliance or TOCPA | Theory of Constraints | Scoop.it

TOCPA is an international non-trading organization for TOC Practitioners. TOCPA is aimed to give its members the opportunity and ability to grow their knowledge and address practical issues and challenges that they face in their quest of brining TOC to their organizations or to their clients.

By bringing together members that have a deep knowledge of TOC – such as faculty members of Goldratt Schools, and consultants that have been working with many organizations in their areas and key leaders from companies that have been using TOC – we have created the platform where the strength of the group works together. TOCPA motto is «Sharing experience».
