Recommends it for: folks interested in process improvement; this one focuses on health care
Recommended to Angela by: Nancy Hanks
This book was long, but I'm such a story hound that it kept my interest all the way through. I like business books that seek to show you the concepts through story, rather than telling with facts and charts alone. And this was a good story - particularly since I work in health care! It would be nice to have an appendix at the end where all of the Theory of Constraints stuff is summarized and packaged, but I'm assuming there are plenty of other reference books out there containing that info.
Intriguing approach to theory and in particular the theory of constraints in a health care setting. Although it is a hypothetical situation, the processes used to introduce and utilze the theory seemed sound and applicable to the 'real-world'.
