In the back there is one seat, big enough for only two people. In a cab, facing Trumann and Doughty, I like it even less. We are returning from a meeting where we negotiated the sale of Pete’s company. Actually, this is not an accurate description

It's Not Luck (1994) is a business novel and a sequel to The Goal. The plot continues to follow the advancement of the main character, Alex Rogo, through the corporate ranks of large manufacturer, UniCo.

It's Not Luck (1994) is a business novel and a sequel to The Goal. Author Dr. Goldratt, a business consultant known for his theory of constraints (TOC), continues to teach the reader his thinking processes through the eyes of Alex Rogo as he learns from his mentor, Jonah

This is a "management" novel that shows how to put powerful logical tools into effect at work to produce win-win solutions to seemingly impossible problems. The author also wrote "The Goal".

It's Not Luck is the follow-up of "The Goal" which, probably by far, Goldratt's best known work in which he introduces the concept the Theory of Constraints. In "It's Not Luck" he introduces "The Thinking Processes" as a way to analyze a system and trying to find a way to break the constraint in the system. The book is written as a business novel and I found it a very easy read, yet... I didn't find it as insightful as "The Goal".

The story follows Alex, who is a senior manager at a firm responsible for 3 divisions. In the past, he has had enormous success in turning businesses around. Now he is heading three large departments that are outside the core business of the company. The CEO will be leaving and he wants to re-structure the group and therefore the three departments Alex is in charge of will either need to be suddenly enormously successful or else they'll get sold. Alex is obviously not happy with that and will need to do *something* that will turn these 3 companies around.

Alex uses "The Thinking Process" as a way of analyzing the current situation and speculating potential future situations. From these future situations, he then works back to find the constraints and tries to break these. This technique is the main technique that is promoted in this book. He first uses it one one of the companies and it turns out to be incredibly successful. They find a new business model and that way turn the company unexpectedly around. The same will need to happen for the other companies if Alex has any chance of success. Will he be able to do that? I'll leave it here and you can read the rest yourself.

"It's Not Luck" was very easy to read. It was well written and kept me engaged and I read it fairly quickly. It was interesting to follow Alex and see how he would resolve the problems in his companies using "The Thinking Process." However, the book never gave me the insights that "The Goal" gave me. I found it hard to imagine how and when I would to use "The Thinking Process" in real life. I guess this book would just be a start and further study would be needed. I've been doubting whether it ought to be 3 or 4 stars. 4 stars because it was well written and an easy read. Three stars because I had hoped for more insight and was a bit disappointed (due my high expectations). I decided to stay with 3 stars.

The message of the It's Not Luck is perhaps more important than The Goal itself which is why I find It's Not Luck a bit more helpful. After listening to The Goal and the extreme detail that was put into that audio book, this lacks a little bit of the same enhancements that are found in The Goal. It is still a wonderful audio book which is true to the printed version of the book and I am extremely glad it exists and is available for all of us to listen to. If you are interested in learning about Cause and Effect diagramming, marketing your products and company better, or in streamlining your leadership thinking processes then I highly suggest you get this audio book. TOC is a completely different way of managing your company which let's you think through a problem rather then TRIZ, benchmarking, Six Sigma, or Lean which emphasize looking at what others have done and adjusting it to your situation. I often have to laugh because most of the companies I see TRIZ consultants use as benchmarks are using TOC companies.

Sure the dialogue is forced and, as with all of Goldratt's books, the information presented is not new. The gift is placing business principles in a context of a story with enough examples that one can extrapolate simple, logical and, powerful practices from it.

I find that Goldratt novels provide simple frameworks that can be easily adapted and provide guidance to business thinking and process. For instance, from The Goal I constantly use and teach the three money measures for helping people understand the true impact of a proposed change in their business processes or automation.

It's Not Luck is a great springboard for considering root cause analysis, program management for organizational change, sales tactics developed from customer needs, and generally good business thought processes for leadership.

When you consider how many managers and executives have made it into the business world with out the MBA, this is great starter information that can have the "formal" business labels attached to it later. Additionally, when you consider how many people went through B school but do not remember to apply what they learned, this is a simple reminder and a tutor for implementation.

I highly recommend any of the TOC novels these reasons.

I read his last book "The Goal" years ago and found it to be an excellent read and full of insights. When I discovered that he had written a book that focused on the marketing side of the business, I had high expectations. Instead, I left confused and disappointed. He reintroduces his characters from The Goal who have new challenges to face. Our hero is introduced to a complex set of decision trees to help guide him in making everything from personal to complex business decisions. I'm sure that there is value in the process, but I thought it was poorly explained and hard to read.

Yet another fine work by Dr. Goldratt. If you have read The Goal,. you must read It's Not Luck. This book explores the concepts of T.O.C. as it relates to several different industries. No longer will you see T.O.C. as something that only applies to manufacturing, It's Not Luck explores multiple industries, as well as sales and marketing.

Especially useful was how Dr. Goldratt explained the thinking process of T.O.C., which will allow us to apply the principles not only to our specific work environment, but also to our private lives. The material is somewhat intensive, and as with other books Dr. Goldratt has written, I will be reading this one a second time so I can fully grasp the concepts.
