BOOKSHELF: Eliyahu M. Goldratt, Theory of Constraints

FROM THE LIBRARY BOOKSHELF: Goldratt, Eliyahu M. Theory of Constraints (Croton-On-Hudson, NY: North River Press, 1990)

Dr. Goldratt is a physicist who has applied his science and the Socratic method to the concepts of innovation and profitability in restructuring. Focus on system constraints is contrarian but brings instant results.

The theory is challenging to grasp, and so Dr. Goldratt explores it in the best selling novel The Goal (process management, manufacturing, inventory & cost accounting) and sequels, It’s Not Luck (marketing & executive management), Critical Chain (project management) and Necessary But Not Sufficient (supply chains).

H. William Dettmer’s Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints (Milwaukee: ASQ Quality Press, 1997) provides a clear, step by step explanation of Goldratt’s methods which are sometimes hard to elicit from the novels, although they are the place to start.




THE BOOKSHELF is an opportunity to comment on one of the many books I’ve purchased and why it blesses me.
THE BOOKSHELF is part of the Listicles Project – an attempt to bring into focus the archetypes of wisdom, the ideas about a topic which occur again and again in a conversation about a topic. The question is this: if we combined all the listicles written on a topic into one giant list, what discrete elements would be present?
