Probably the best business parable that I have read. The story walks you through the critical thinking process of managing a fictional manufacturing plant into profitability. Then the book discusses how the same bottle-neck isolating-and-fixing methodology can apply to virtually any industry. The story also walks you through use of the Socratic Method as a technique of teaching and influencing people.

“More importantly, our software worked. I don't just mean that it didn't bump, or that it performed according to the written specifications, or that it was efficient in producing reports. It really worked”
