The book is engaging but I was disappointed that most of it are lean principles, and not something path breaking as I had imagined.

Review: The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement

User Review  - Jennifer - Goodreads

This was pretty good for being about improving manufacturing plants. I liked the discussion about the "goal" and all efforts working toward that goal. It's a good thing to keep in mind. Read full review
