I do so much enjoy the style of Eli Goldratt, I find its easy to read and understand the concepts. This book is like a sequel to The Goal and takes the TOC concepts into other areas of the business such as Marketing and sales. If you liked the Goal, you'll like this too.

Главной мыслю в данной книге автор пытается донести до читателей тот факт, что большинство людей не совсем эффективно умеют подходить к вопросам решению проблем. Он на целом ряде примеров показывает как их решать с помощью нескольких техник и приёмов. Автор даёт понять что проблемой этого является человеческий фактор. Он на примере героев показывает как тем получается решать самые тяжелые проблемы не только в бизнесе, но и в обычной жизни не идя на компромиссы.
Данная книга для всех кто стремится

Some more helpful tools from Goldratt--current reality trees, cloud diagrams. All immediately applicable to my C523 Systems Decision Theory and Applications coursework in the MBA. A business book in a novel format.

Eliyahu M Holdratt comes up with innovative business strategies through his book "It's not luck". UniCo goes for a shift in its policy and decides to sell the non-core businesses. Unfortunately, Alex Rogo's companies dealing with printer, cosmetics and pressure pump industries have to be sold. Rogo has to ensure a good deal for all these companies and being an empathetic superior Rogo also wants to ensure that the jobs of the employees remain intact.

All the three businesses have their own set of

В этой книге автор переходит от частных выводов теории ограничений к более высоким уровням абстракции:
Логике построения текущей реальности - связыванием всех нежелательных последствий с несколькими основными причинами
Грозовым тучам - метод решения конфликтныхситуаций не с помощью компромиссов, а с помощью устрания неверных предпосылоклежащих в основе конфликта
Дерева будущей реальности - новой реальности, которую необходимо создать с учетом новых условий

This business novel is a sequel to the book The Goal which had introduced the concepts of Theory of Constraints (TOC) and shown its application in a manufacturing scenario.
This book is about how the protagonist of the novel Alex Rego applies TOC concepts and techniques to Sales, Marketing, Inventory Control and Business Strategy and comes out with flying colors in this challenging task.
Through this novel, the Goldratt teaches us Thinking Process techniques for solving problems using Current Rea

I stopped reading after only a few dozen pages. Where "The Goal" seemed to blend the backstory with the business lessons fairly seamlessly, "It's Not Luck" does a poor job. The book introduces one of its key problem-solving techniques during an argument between the protagonist and his 13 year-old daughter - a passage that felt so forced it was difficult to slog through. It's rare that I willfully abandon a book, but this one is simply too poorly written to keep going.
Dave Bremer
Interesting. A description of Thinking Processes of Cloud an Tree (future reality tree, current reality tree, transition tree etc). They remind me of some formal problem methodologies

I'm not sure about them. Will need to try them out sometime but in not sure that I really get them.

easy & pleasant read
Darcy
I recommend reading "The Goal" first. This book is a follow on to "The Goal" with some of the same characters.

"The Goal" is about the Theory of Constraints and uses a unique approach for discovering "The Goal". Unlike, Goldratt's other follow on book called "Critical Chain", "It's not Luck" is not a rehash of the Theory of Constraints applied to some new problem. Instead it revisits the unique approach used to discover/appreciate the root of a problem. So this book is about the art of defining

Dr. Goldratt has succeeded in maintaining the balance between a treatise on a management theory -Thinking Process technique- and the story of Alex Rogo's professional life, after being elevated to the position of EVP and personal life, to be involved with the family of a working wife and frowning teenage children.
Those looking to know more about the management theory espoused in the book may be somewhat disappointed, but those who look forward to reading a management fiction can certainly look f

Recommends it for: Those who've read 'The Goal'
Further to his first book - The Goal, Goldratt has explained behavioral management and market in this book rather than physical constraints.
Once you are done with author's first book, you must go through this one.
In this book, Goldratt has talked about TOC(Theory of Constraints) and the way to overcome behavioral management issues. Thinking is not all , thinking back to scour out the constraints is an important method . Current reality Tree (CRT) is one of the method the author has shown in thi

Again he teaches a valuable technique and its concepts through a story.

It's about cause and effect, and how to get to the root cause.
Craig White
I actually rate this one as 3.5. Its good but i keep getting the feeling as tho I need to break to study up in more detail the various thinking tools that make up Goldratt's Theories - so as a result it doesn't flow as well. Recommended tho
Kiryl Baranoshnik
This book is not as insightful as "The Goal" but I found it much more practical. It depicts application of thinking processes of TOC in very different situations and shows that these methods can be applied equally well in production and in daily life. Probably, Goldratt's system is not the only one of it's kind, but it clearly provides a means for "controlled" invention. What I liked the most was that I could start using the methods right away because of their versatility.
Mohanakrishnan Nagarajan
If Goal gave new insights on cost, this book redefines marketing and distribution approaches
Hans
as good as "The Goal"
very practical & down to earth
business wisdom in proza, I'm a big fan
John Hibbs
This book is nowhere near it's predecessor 'The Goal', but it's still a very good book. If you've read the previous book this will add to the experience and will give you insight in additional areas where the theory of constraints can be applied.

It is not hard to read any of the books by Goldratt, as they read like a business novel. However, it will make you think about certain processes and how they interrelate. For me, it reinforced that the answers to a problem are usually not the ones that

Sequel to The Goal. Continues to develop Goldrat's Theory of constraints in a fictional form using many of the same characters from the previous novel.

As a story it's not as effective, there isn't the same sense of threat or excitement that I felt in the first book as Alex grappled to save the factory, however it does develop the ideas and adds some new conceptual tools.

As a business book however it's a light but thought-provoking read.
Brian Button
While I didn't find the story of this book as engaging as in Critical Chain or The Goal, I really enjoyed the examples of how TOC was applied to service organizations. This was my first real exposure to Goldratt's Thinking Processes, and it definitely left me wanting to learn more about them.

Probably my third favorite book in terms of the actual writing, but I enjoyed the content as much as The Goal and Critical Chain. I consider all three to be important books to read in understanding Goldratt

The next in series by Eliyahu Goldratt.. Another gem of a book. Must read for MBA grads atleast. This is more on marketing and division level planning and execution.
Hussein AlSarabi
Highly recommended.

A sequel to Alex's story. In this book the author introduces thinking tools and tackles the subjects of sales, marketing, customer needs and strategy. Introducing new innovative approaches and business models with the systematic way to reach them, all in a novel format.

The down side is that the tools are some times mixed up and the steps are not always clear, there appears to be complementary courses on that by the author.
Frank Tromp
Klassieker gelezen van de man die deze zomer overleden is. Op aanraden van collega. Leuke manier om naar conflicten te kijken en oplossingen te verzinnen. Mooi om te zien hoe een paradigma verschuiving kan leiden tot oplossingen die wel werken. Heeft weer klein beetje andere kijk gegeven op veranderingsprocessen waar we mee bezig zijn.

Leest door zijn opzet lekker makkelijk weg en je steekt er nog wat van op ook!
Rob
Read this book again on 21-25 Sep 2013. Some of the concepts made more sense this second time around. Some of the key words jumped out at me that I had missed before.
This book will make you think. You'll need to let it sink in and come back to it to glean the additional tidbits.
Being reminded of the steps in a couple of the Thinking Processes gives renewed interest in using them and learning to be more proficient with them.
Alexey Shpakov
The book very much resembles original "Goal" by the same author. It tries to teach you a new approach to solving complex issues by investigating precipices and trying to build a solution that all the interested parties will benefit from. Although the story line feels a bit irrelevant, if not to say artificial, it is still nice to have it as it helps to put the described techniques into perspective.
Rahul Kulkarni
3 different industries, each with its own set of problems and distinctive market segments. Goldratt takes you on a ride by illustrating the power of Thinking Processes. Although I enjoyed the prequel to this part more, I like the fact that Goldratt keeps the scenario as realistic as possible amidst the utopian agenda in-hand. Well thought and delivered. 4/5 for conveying such a tough topic with ease
Evan
A good book on project management, but not as easily applicable as Critical Chain or The Goal. Only fair; the primary message of the story is to work directly with customer to identify their actual needs, and provide those, rather than a product-centric view of manufacturing or services. (Serve the market, not your planned products.) And, of course, inventory is fundamentally evil.
Hans
as good as the previous book I read "The Goal"
business wisdom in proza, I'm a big fan
interesting, clear & down to earht
looking forward to start using this in my daily life
Danil Shelehov
Лёгкое, но занимательное чтиво.
Ivan Burda
Not as outstanding as The Goal but still a very decent read. The book deserves 3.5 stars. Some chapters, were a little bit awkward, however, useful marketing guidance, presented in an easy-to-grasp way, can be found in the book.
An entertaining business novel, which is definitely worth your timebut read The Goal first.
Bob Wallner
Although not as good as The Goal, Dr. Goldratt really has a knack for teaching through story. In the continuing saga of Alex Rogo we learn concepts of his thinking process and evaporating clouds. This type of introduction to a concept makes me want to go out and learn more about the subject.
