Bill Dettmer has written the best handbook on how to understand Goldratt's Theory of Constraints and apply his Thinking Tools, that I've read. This handbook is comprehensive, and Dettmer's writing style is clear, easy to read, and loaded with examples. His example describing a common reason that hinders success in Total Quality Management is a must-read for anyone involved with TQM. Physical bottlenecks are often easy to spot and fix, but policy and management practices are not. Dettmer's [...]
Dettmer has done us all a great service! I remember putting down The Goal and It's Not Luck and wishing there was and implementation guide to the decision tools utilized in those books. Now there is one. Dettmer has provided a step-by-step approach to building the decision trees pioneered by Goldratt. This book was made for anyone who wants to apply the decision tools utilized by Alex Rogo in the Goal and It's Not Luck. I use this book regularly at my company to figure out what to chang [...]
I expected a book that gave manufacturing type examples of TOC applicationbut was sorely disappointed. It is a very thorough explaination of the 'logic' behind applying TOC and uses examples, but they are every day events, not real operational problems. If you want logic and step by step problem solving techniques, buy the book. If you want to see how real companies apply the TOC theories, don't but it.
Eliyahu Goldratt has formulated some wonderful concepts for management and popularized them in his novels The Goal and the sequel, It's Not Luck. The marketing strategies in It's Not Luck are revolutionary, systematic and extraordinary means to innovate in a market. The procedures, however, are difficult to extrapolate from the novel in a step by step fashion. Dettmer makes them clear.
So you've read Goldratt's books, The Goal, Critical Chain, etc.d it all sounds great but you need a more complete understanding of TOC. A business novel this is not, a hardcore explanation of TOC it is. Current Reality Trees (CRT's), Future Reality Trees (FRT's), and all other logic and situational diagrams from TOC are explained in this book. You've really gotta want to learn TOC to get through this book, but with some determination you'll get through it and have a much more complete un [...]
Ein echt gutes Buch.Wer zu den Romanen Goldratts eine Alternative sucht, der wird hier fündig.Dettmer hat ein richtiges Fachbuch geschrieben. Sehr gut strukturiert, viele plastische Beispiele. Besser kann man ein Managementkonzept und die dahinterstehenden Werkzeuge nicht rüber bringen.So gut, dass ich versucht bin, etwas ähnliches - und Berücksichtigung meiner eigenen Erfahrungen - in Deutsch auf die Beine zu stellen.
While Goldratt's books are good, they do little to educate one on how to implement TOC. Dettmer's book shows you how. Don't bother looking for others.
