Read in January, 1996

A fascinating book that focuses on continuous improvement in both a manufacturing setting and the organizational setting. This is a business book written as a novel. Goldratt does a great job helping us understand how constraints impact a system, any system. One of my favorite quotes was on the process of ongoing improvement:
"The process of ongoing improvement doesn't mean you're improving all the time. The rate of improvement will vary. What it means is that everybody knows exactly on what to concentrate their attention in order to improve performance - which is really the key to everything."
