Created by Dr. Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Avraham (Rami) Goldratt, the TOC Insights are an extensive explanation of the Theory of Constraints (TOC) analysis and solution covering all the aspects of logistics, developed in an interactive type presentation for self-learning as well as group training.

They outline the details of all the logistical application of the Theory of Constraints (TOC) and are as digestible as The Goal. They give us the entire common sense logic, they are short, enticing to TOC novices and still an eye opener to TOC experts.

These self-learning materials are also ideal for teaching groups since they contain examples, case studies and simulations and are organized to answer in sequence the five questions of change: Why to change? What needs to be changed? What to change it to? How to cause the required change? and How to keep it as a Process of Ongoing Improvement (POOGI)?

Note: The TOC Insights can be purchased by session or as a complete series. They are provided in different versions to fit the users’ needs. The TOC Insights are an excellent companion to the GSP Series or to the TOC Self Learning Program (TOC-SLP) making them a perfect complement to enrich the learning effectiveness.
