In addition two esteemed senior executives shared their experiences and insights obtained by using TOC in their companies:
In Pune, we learned from Mr. Sadashiv Pandit, Executive Chairman of Fleetguard Filters Pvt. Ltd.
"Goal by itself is an 'eye opener' for people in Industry. Making this book available in marathi increases its reach to many more thousand. This effort is worthwhile and shall pay for itself . I wish you all the success".

Also In Pune, we learned from M.V. Kotwal, Former Member of the L&T Board &President – Heavy Engineering
"I read the book, "The Goal" after getting inspired by a half-day seminar which I attended several years back. The book, written as a story unlike the "Management jargon" seen in most such books, lays the foundation for a novel way of thinking. It is only fitting that a Marathi translation has been launched. Through the consequent wider readership, the fundamentals of TOC can take root in the progressive state of Maharashtra. This can have a very significant impact on improving productivity in a diverse range of organizations and projects."
And In Mumbai, we learned from Mr. Y. S. Trivedi, Senior Vice President, Larsen and Toubro Ltd.
"When we started implementing Theory of Constraints and since we are very diversified and innovative, always changing company, we have had many challenges but we have travelled some distance. So, we were very fortunate and some of us were very fortunate to have been directly in contact with Dr. Goldratt."
