Taylor, you had me at Eli Goldratt.
I hand The Goal to all key employees (or one’s who desire to be key) as a way of “unblocking” their minds in regards to process and potential.
Your expansion on the concept to apply to everything within the gamut of the entrepreneurial experience is exceptional. Nice lateral application of a vertical process (I always viewed Goldratt’s constraints mentally, as funnels. Hence vertical vs horizontal.)
Fantastic. Time to see how many new areas I can apply this template.
