Silver bullets do exist to provide major benefits throughout the organization.

TOC brings fast and significant results, and with such silver bullets there also comes a natural resistance from the prevailing culture. Listen as Dr. Goldratt shares his analysis of what prevents companies from taking actions shown in The Goal, and HOW by implementing TOC as a holistic approach this can be overcome and major benefits can be achieved

This session, as well as the complete N&S Series, is designed for those who...

  • Want to understand how the Theory of Constraints (TOC) is a holistic approach, directly from Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt, developer of TOC, and expand their understanding of how to achieve and sustain a holistic TOC implementation to put a whole organization (not just Operations, or Distribution or Engineering or any other function) on a Process of Ongoing Improvement (POOGI), and learn how to overcome the obstacles that prevent organizations to take the necessary and sufficient actions to bring fast and sustainable results.
