The Goal  in 885 Words Here are the principles behind the dramatic turnaround story in  The Goal , in 885  words. Ready? Start counting now: 1. The goal of a manufacturing organization is to make money.  Jonah poses this  as a question: "What is the goal?" and Rogo actually struggles with it for a  day or two, but any manager or executive that can't answer that question  without hesitation should be fired without hesitation. But then again, the goal isn't clear to everyone. One of the characters in the  book, an accountant, responds to an offhand comment about the goal with a  confused "The goal? You mean our objectives for the month?" That's sure to  strike a chord with a lot of readers. 2.
