Pre-order for The Bottleneck Rules: How to Get More Done (When Working Harder isn’t Working) -

I wrote it so I had a simple, short and accessible guide to bottlenecks that I could give to people who AREN’T process / improvement / engineering  geeks like me. As much as I love The Goal, no matter how often I recommend it, I just could not get people to read it. The few that tried gave up.

Eli taught me to think. I hope he would have been proud of what I’ve done. I hope it brings more people to ToC.

Note: If you’re a ToC guru who’s drunk too much Eli cool-aid, you‘lol shudder when you read it! I’ve replaced the 5FS with a mnemonic called FOCCCUS.  I’ve named 5 types of bottleneck. I’ve simplified DBR so it’s useable by ordinary people. I’ve added strategic bottleneck placement. I’ve used small words and examples everyone understands. I replace the scouts with a funny joke.

If you‘re a doctor, accountant, book editor, CIO, Agile coach, or volunteer manager, you’ll love it. It’s got no business mumbo-jumbo in it. It’s also really short - which is why it took so long to write.

And for the next few days, cheap.
