Another 5 Star Review.....

Bruce and I are very happy to share another 5 Star review from an Amazon reader, Deepak Nagar.  Many thanks to Deepak for his very kind and instructional words.  That is 7 of 7 5 Star reviews from our readers.

Bob and Bruce

5.0 out of 5 stars Am I Epiphanized? You bet.., September 27, 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Epiphanized: Integrating Theory of Constraints, Lean and Six Sigma (Paperback)
Epiphanized: Integrating Theory of Constraints, Lean and Six Sigma

Through Epiphanized, Bob Sproull and Bruce Nelson have empatically sent out a message to all those who are considering to adopt TLS as their business philosophy that

- TLS implementation is extremely simple. SIMPLE does not mean easy, just SIMPLE.

- TOC adoption can be jeopardised if complexity is mixed in the implementation knowingly or unknowingly. Guard against complexity.

- Since the possibilities / potential to grow has no limit, there is an element of faith. Believing is seeing to begin with. The initial results would reveal the counter intuitive logic of few thumb-rules:

- Going slow to deliver fast result
- Holding inventory closer to the source to reduce overall inventory
- Removing deadly spell of cost-control to achieve ultimate cost control
- People are good, they are sometimes driven by wrong assumptions

- When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

This is an excellent novel. As a deserving disciples of Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt, this novel could well be named "Isn't it obvious? - Part II".

I am sure this book will become a recommended read just like the iconic "Goal".
