HBXer–Rafael Rosales’ Comments:
- I have a really great book I think every person in our HBX family should read: The Goal by Eliyahu Goldratt.
- This novel teaches you the concept of “Theory of Constraints” in a way that is mesmerizing! It is very easy to read because the author explains everything in a simple manner. I promise all my HBX colleagues that you will be hooked from page 1 because you will learn about concepts via the interactions each of the characters.
- You will learn the importance of breaking a complex problem into smaller batches that will enable you as a manager to effectively and successfully solve them.
- Although this novel at first seems like one that will be read by engineers or business students, i can assure you that my friends in social and science fields have greatly benefitted by reading it. The author makes such a great narrative that the reader doesn’t need to have prior knowledge to understand the information and lessons.
