The Goal: A Business Graphic Novel

Eliyahu Goldratt (2017) [Amazon]

In the end, all this stuff comes down to finding bottlenecks: The parts of the process that limit the speed of everything that happens after it. The best book I know of on bottlenecks is the cheesy but excellent The Goal by Eliyahu Goldratt (also available—and recommended—in graphic novel form). The book revolves around Goldratt’s “theory of constraints” and the five focusing steps to uncover bottlenecks, which I’ve found to be a helpful framework to apply to almost any process
