This paper discusses and reviews the self-help novel, "The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement," written by Eliyahu Goldratt and Jeff Cox. The paper describes the plot of the book and the lessons that we can learn from the characters in the book. The paper then briefly mentions how useful the advise in the book would be in the writer's workplace.
From the Paper:"I can see that the guidelines laid out in this book might apply at my workplace. It's hard to imagine that they could do any harm. It's generic advice. Everything that is in the book is a matter of common sense. The scenarios Goldratt paints are blue skies and Pollyanna simplistic, with the outcome a foregone conclusion. But life seldom works in that way. The customer may decide he wants the limited run at the same price and takes his business to the competition or worse, to a company willing to give the procurement officer a kickback. Business is cutthroat and Goldratt's best-case scenario is a dream. It is a cheerleader handbook, and only in that sense is it worth the read."
