The full title of this book by H William Dettmer is
“The Logical Thinking Process: A Systems Approach to Complex Problem Solving“.
In my review at Amazon.co.uk, I rate the book at the FIVE Stars level, this means that I consider it to be excellent.
Here is what I posted.
A clear explanation of TOC Thinking Processes
On the one hand, the Theory of Constraints Thinking Processes can be powerful tools for investigating the current situation and identifying vital ways to improve the system in ways to meet the goal. On the other hand, they can be daunting to prepare and/or to understand because of the acronyms, unusual terminology and complexity of both the diagrams and their underlying rules.
This book does an excellent job of getting a to grips with the thinking processes and explaining them in a straightforward manner. There is still a lot to take in but the book makes them much more accessible.
The author also reflects the experience of many years of use and shows how the original versions developed and proposed by Dr Eliyahu Goldratt have been adapted to make them more effective.
I see there’s a one star review where expectations weren’t met. This is a much broader look at problem analysis and finding solutions than the traditional Theory of Constraints production approach featured in “The Goal”
If you’re serious about learning and using the TOC Thinking Processes, I can’t give this book a strong enough recommendation. It is brilliant.Business Books Reviews by Paul Simister (Please click).
