This comprehensive book (362 pages cover-to-cover) has sold more than 6 million copies in multiple editions, and was co-authored by Dr. Goldratt, an internationally recognized expert in the development of revolutionary business concepts and management systems (that Fortune magazine once called a guru to industry).
Unusual for a business book, ‘The Goal’ is written as a fast-paced novel about a plant manager, Alex, who’s under the gun to improve his plant’s performance in order to prevent its imminent closure. Alex has just three months to turn things around, and receives timely help and advice from a former college professor who helps him break free from conventional modes of management thinking. Once begun, a great many readers will find it difficult to put this engrossing business novel back on their bookshelves.
