- Written by someone with an MBA.
- I’d worked in manufacturing before going back to school.
- The Theory of Constraints is designed to be used – which is why there are so many modern references in the summary.
- The book is a product of its time – it was written in the 1980s by a brilliant software developer who was frustrated by seeing the same problems at customer after customer – now ToC is widely used in many industries and applications.
- The Goal is to be able to use TOC well – and to do that, you must first have been exposed to it.
