Master Class

TOC, Lean and Six Sigma combined: Mix your own explosive cocktail

Many people claim that the Theory Of Constraints, Lean and Six Sigma are incompatible. They say you have to choose your sect. This Master Class explains why this is not true and how each company can mix a powerful cocktail of the 3 best known improvement approaches best suited to their specific environment. Among other things : how to select the most pertinent Lean or Lean Six Sigma initiatives using TOC; how to combine Kanban, Drum-Buffer-Rope and the “2 for 1” WIP control rule; when to run a Design Of Experiment initiative … The Master Class combines theory and practice with dozens of real life case studies based on Philip Marris’ over 200 implementations throughout the world. If you want your factory performance to be a major contributor to your growth, this “TLS” combination is what you have been looking for.


Project Management the TOC Way: Combining CCPM and the 5 focusing steps for astounding results

The combination of Critical Chain Project Management and the Theory Of Constraints’ 5 focusing steps enable extraordinary results to be obtained in an unbelievably short time. Capacity constraints in project portfolios can be identified immediately (Step 1) and exploited (Step 2) so as to instantaneously produce 2 or 3 times more per week. CCPM can simultaneously put all projects under control, provide excellent visibility, reduce project durations by over 40%...and finish nearly all projects on time. Several recent case studies are used to provide practical examples. If you think all projects are doomed to be painful semi-failures, think again. If you are looking to boost your growth you need to boost your project performance, this conference explains how easy this could be.
