    Sandydog1: Both emphasize getting back to basics and cutting waste. Both are very entertaining.

I refer to the audiobook version, and while it is from a different generation, set in the 80’s in a small town in the US, this was a unique listening and learning experience many can gain from.

I do not work in manufacturing, have lttle understandinf or need to deal with inventory optimisation, or keeping the flow on the shop floor but the book still gave me a perspectove on what management should be paying arrention to that is very useful. There is a deeper view ro management that works around strategy of an activity and how to beat apply resource planning to achieve this.

Great strage listening experience... ( )

A quick primer into Theory of Constraints. Non fiction books driving one single point in reams of pages is sometimes tiresome. In a graphic novel like this I could easily understand the core concept even though manufacturing is an alien domain. I love this book specially in this format. ( )

At first I wanted to write that it is really unusual to read book about business processes written in thriller style but then I remembered [b:The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win|17255186|The Phoenix Project A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win|Gene Kim|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1361113128s/17255186.jpg|23848838] which is incredibly similar, just more related to IT processes than management.
So in this book action revolves about the plant manager who has only three months to save his factory from being bankrupt. Of course, there is this Jona guy, who seems to know everything but giving away one hint at the time (that's teaching the readers that in order to really understand, one really needs to figure everything by himself). All the book is about how this manager tries to figure out what needs to be done step by step and understanding Theory of Constraints (TOC) main breakthrough being watching the scout kids march.
It is also a nice touch of the author to show how all of this affects personal life and relations.
While sometimes steps of improvement for reader look really obvious it can be nicely summed up by the quote from the book by Mark Twain:

Common sense is very uncommon.

Here's what I wrote after reading (for work) in 1990: "A business novel! About getting the best utilziation of production resourcdes in order to meet demand. Poor Herbie, the bottleneck in the scout troupe-like "production" line." Still, after these many years, applying the Theory of Constraints and idenitifying, even in volunteer gigs, "The Herbie". Attended a Theory of Constraints workshop taught by Eli Goldratt. Here's something I remember learning in that workshop: "The goal of business is to make money now and in the future." Simplified vs. the official "goal" referenced in the book. And here's another easy phrase that's stuck with me: "Elevate the Constraint". ( )

I had to read this for work. A business graphic novel is just about the last thing I would ever read voluntarily. ( )
