Hanging Fire book by Jeff Cox, Dale Houle & Hugh Cole - 2 min. video summary

Some 30 years ago, Dr. Eli Goldratt and Jeff Cox teamed to write a "business novel" entitled THE GOAL. Now, with HANGING FIRE, Jeff Cox has once again teamed with the Goldratt Institute to show how the Theory of Constraints (TOC) has evolved and advanced over time. Above all, and similar to THE GOAL, this book is focused on achieving business success in a world of uncertainty.

"The Phoenix Project" book review by Jan van den Berg

"The Phoenix Project" book review by Jan van den Berg | Theory Of Constraints | Scoop.it

[...] Actually the book could be seen as a modern day version of The Goal by Dr. Goldratt — a book that handles the Theory of Constraints — which I had of course heard of, but never read. The writers of The Phoenix Project make no secret of their admiration for Goldratts’ theory. But DevOps is of course a thing of its own. [...]

When a co-worker handed me a copy of The Phoenix Project, the 8-bit art on the cover looked fun. But the tagline — ‘A Novel About IT, DevOps and Helping your Business Win’ — sounded a bit like the usual buzzword management lingo. But I was clearly wrong, I loved this book!

It is unlike anything I’ve read before and it really spoke to me because the situations were so incredibly recognizable. The book tells a fictionalized story where the main character, Bill, gets promoted — more or less against his will — to VP IT Operations and subsequently inherits a bit of a mess. Things keeps breaking and escalating, ...

Clarke Ching's "The Bottleneck rules" book mentionned in The Guardian newspaper UK | Theory Of Constraints | Scoop.it

[...] Airport luggage is a classic example of a bottleneck, “a resource that can’t keep up with the demand placed on it”, to borrow a definition from The Bottleneck Rules, a recent short book by Clarke Ching, drawing on the work of the legendary business scholar Eli Goldratt. And bottlenecks are everywhere – from traffic jams to self-checkout machines to work meetings that proceed, as the saying goes, “at the pace of the slowest mind in the room”. ...

Smart Factories – TOC reborn? post by Colin Elkins | ifsworld.com

Smart Factories – TOC reborn? post by Colin Elkins | ifsworld.com | Theory Of Constraints | Scoop.it

Over the years there have been many paradigms that claim to optimize production and save the world—bottleneck, forward and backward, finite and infinite scheduling models, DDMRP, Kanban—and almost all failed in some way to deliver manufacturing nirvana.

One such stratagem was the Theory of Constraints (TOC). But could a fresh approach to TOC, combined with emerging technology, hold the key to making smart factories work?
