Eliyahu Goldratt is een fenomeen. Over de hele wereld passen economen, bedrijfskundigen en managers zijn zogeheten Theory of Contraints (TOC) toe in hun eigen organisaties. Hij schreef onder meer de bestsellers Het doel, Het is geen toeval en De zwakste schakel.
The Choice, revised edition, by Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Efrat Goldratt-Ashlag Goldratt presents his thought provoking approach, this time through a conversation with his daughter Efrat, as he explains to her his fundamental system of beliefs. The revised edition includes Efrat's own notes and maps (charts) she made during her conversations with her father, helping the reader determine the true essence of the book. From the original publication: TOC has been successfully applied in almost every area of human endeavor, from industry to healthcare to education. And while Eli Goldratt is indeed a scientist, an educator and a business leader, he is first and foremost a philosopher; some say a genius. He is a thinker who provokes others to do the same. Often characterized as unconventional, and always stimulating a slayer of sacred cows Dr. Goldratt exhorts his readers to examine and reassess their lives and business practices by cultivating a different perspective and a clear new vision.
This book has made a firm impact on my life. Having studied everything else Eli Goldratt has written and being a LSS BB, this book made the definite bridge between professional and personal! I actually made my girlfriend read this book and will order more to give to people. I think it's even more important for people to read than Eli's infamous "The Goal".
Although it's a very rational book, it does open the door to solving emotional issues between people. After this book I started studying Executive Coaching and Mediation. This book emphasises on the rational approach to communicate on a high level of cognition. It doesn't go into emphatically approaching conflict. There are other books for this kind of approach. It's refreshing for psychology knowledgeable people and a kick start for people who want to gain more from their life and be less busy with fire fighting and conflicts. The 4 obstacles can truly be transformed to the 4 pillars that shape your life.

Ik raad dit product aan
dialogen zijn wat lastiger te lezen
Lastiger te lezen dan andere boeken maar goed om TOC toegepast te zien op dagelijks leven.
