And he also hosted three all-day book clubs with Amazon’s top executives, capped by nice dinners at the end. Bezos said he used the books as frameworks for sketching out the future of the company.The Goal flat

Which books? Bezos was kind enough to share the titles.

The Goal was originally published in 1984 but is still very relevant today.  And, as you likely know, it take place in a machine shop.  Many job shops and machine shops use The Goal as their Bible.  The only problem is that most have no idea how to apply it to their unique shop.

Well, I have good news.  If you own or manage a highly custom job shop or machine shop and want to apply what you read in The Goal to YOUR shop, you can do that with expert guidance very inexpensively.  Just check out the Velocity Scheduling System (VSS)  Coaching Program.

VSS is NOT software but a visual manual scheduling system developed specifically for highly custom job shops and machine shops which are typically low volume high mix environments where the constraint can move week to week or even day to day.

Who’s the expert that would guide you?  Well that’s Dr Lisa Lang.  She is one of the foremost Theory of Constraints experts who has worked with Dr Goldratt and specializes in applying Theory of Constraints to highly custom job shops and machine shops.
