I read the original book and now this one. It is good primer on the areas of MRP, ERP, Logistics, Supply Chains and Software. Goldratt is very opinionated and passionate. I have spent 10 years being a consultant to many companies in the same fields and I can confirm that he is the very best in this speciality. He is the Peter Drucker, Tom Peters and Stevan Covey combined for the Supply Chain space. I wish audible.com would introduce more Supply Chain and Project Management books such as this one.

Whilst there is good material in this recording it very quickly gets old hearing the presenter refer to diagrams/charts you can't see as he is presenting live in front of an audience here ... The initial guidance says there are files that can be downloaded with the PowerPoint slides: I can't find them and got no response when I emailed audible to ask for them.
If you like the late Dr Goldratt's self-assured delivery (i'm OK with it) you'll like this. For others a conventional book may be a better place to start

What did you like most about Beyond the Goal?
Eliyahu gives an excellent talk on the principles of TOC and relates his talk expertly back to his books "The Goal" and "It's Not Luck". The books opened my eyes to the world of Business Improvement and this talk has cemented the principles in my head.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Most definitely. Eliyahu talks passionately about his topic which drew me in and made me never want to stop listening.
Any additional comments?
If you haven't read any of Eliyahu's books then this is an excellent introduction to his Theory of Constraints which I am completely convinced will make you want to read his books and addopt his methods of improving work flows. If you have already read his books then this talk is a great listen to cement the theories in your head and remind you of the guiding principles.
