This review is from: The Measurement Nightmare: How the Theory of Constraints Can Resolve Conflicting Strategies, Policies, and Measures (St. Lucie Press/Apics Series on Constraints Management,) (Library Binding)
This is a good book for executives WHO are in search of an alternative to deal strategic direction.
There are several examples and case studies to support ideas. There is a brief introduction to TOC basics.

I suggest Demand Driven Performance book by Chad&Debra Smith for interested readers. You could find a very well prepared contextual background with scientific history and logical trees and a lot of "how to" clues.
