Another interesting section of the book (pages 190-200) centred around applying TOC to distribution replenishment, strongly advise also reading the Goldratt book "Isn't it Obvious" book too which really expands on this area.
All in all, another easy read because of the novel format, which yet again gets some important business points across in an easy way.
Written in a similar style to "The Goal" and "It's Not Luck" (both of which I'd suggest you read before this book) you're taken in to the world of an ERP software company and their biggest systems integration company. Seemingly insurmountable challenges and certain doom face the teams as their core market becomes saturated - can TOC come to the rescue once again? Yes, of course, but to achieve full potential it needs a helping hand from a few other things... You'll have to read the book to find out :)
I deducted one star because once again we find retail supply chain management starting to dominate towards the end of the book and our company has nothing to do with, and does not come in to contact with, that area of business. I'm hoping that Goldratt will release a TOC book that doesn't mention, or even allude to, retail supply chain management.
My only criticism is that is left me wanting more - too much more - I can't help feel that he could have gone into more depth on the theory side of it. That said, I agree with the last reviewer - I couldn't put it down either...
