TOC is a management philosophy that treats a corporation as an interlinked, interdependent system rather than just a collection of independent processes or functions. Dr. Eli Goldratt, the creator of TOC, observed that just as the strength of a chain is dictated by its weakest link, the overall performance of any company is dictated by its constraint. If you can find a way to manage the constraint you can dramatically increase sales, cash, and profit without any significant investment.

Workshop Agenda

  • Introduction to TOC
  •  TOC metrics – Throughput, Investment and Operating Expenses (T,I,OE)
