Easy Read- Very Educational
There are so many simple but yet crucial managerial / business concepts in this book! I read this book 2 yrs ago in one of my MBA classes and still remember the valuable lessons!
Kevin Spacey is a perfect Alex Rogo. It brings back memories of House of Cards and American Beauty. This "audiobook" plays out more like a show. It's very entertaining and thought provoking, even if you aren't into Supply Chain Management. You won't be disappointed.
In regards to the other reviewer comments on getting all 3 parts, I had no problem.
Game Changer for manufacturing
I own a small manufacturing business and we were guilty of some of the same things happening in the fictional story as well as in the two lectures posted in the 30th anniversary edition. We basically did exactly what Dr. Goldratt instructed us to do in the respect of limiting our work in process, building a mechanism to release work into our system and working on bottle necks and disruptions. Doing this has made a HUGE impact on increasing throughput and cash flow. In my opinion, this book has been one of the most important things we coul have done. Ensure you get the 30th anniversary edition. There should be 2 sections at the end that are roughly 45 minutes long. Very Important.
