"Mr. Rogo, a plant manager, must improve his factory's efficiency or face its closing in just three months. With help from a mysterious mentor, Rogo discovers a revolutionary new way to do business -- a way for people in any field of endeavor to increase productivity, profitability, and personal fulfillment. A business book disguised as a novel, a love story about the manufacturing process, and an exhilarating adventure in human potential, The Goal is changing how America does business. First published in 1984, it has become a classic business and management text used by thousands of companies and taught in hundreds of business schools. Includes the author's personal story, 'My Saga.' This third edition includes case study interviews. Professional readers recreate interviews that David Whitford, Editor at Large with Fortune Small Business, conducts with the author Eli Goldratt and with business professionals from General Motors, Thomson-Shore, Security Federal Banks and others who put the principles of The Goal into action"--Provided by publisher.

This is the best business book of its type that I have ever read. Written in novel form it gets a very important message across where many similarly themed books have failed.
