This Focused Performance Weblog started life as a "business management blog" containing links and commentary related primarily to organizational effectiveness with a "Theory of Constraints" perspective, but is in the process of evolving towards primary content on interactive and mobile marketing. Think of it as about Focusing marketing messages for enhanced Performance. If you are on an archive page, current postings are found here.
Other than perhaps hiring me to teach him TOC while using it to solve a significant problem...or maybe bringing me in to provide facilitation for constraint based strategic planning...or even getting his multi-project-based shop whipped into shape...there are always other books that go beyond Goldratt's seminal "business novel." Recent years have seen a small explosion in that part of the library, thanks in no small part to a series from APICS.
That said, the coincidence of Steve's request is that I have recently -- just this week, as a matter of fact -- updated and expanded the reference list on my website. It can be found, with recommending commentary for TOC books (as well as with links to acquire them from amazon.com) on my virtual bookshelf.
