Webinar PowerPoint Presentation

And now Marris Consulting is launching a full e-learning course based on all this accumulated experience. So join us as Philip Marris tells some of his latest TOC in Production war stories and presents several extracts of this on demand training during this webinar.

Of course, as usual, we will talk about mixing TOC and Lean. By focusing Lean initiatives in the right places within the company the Theory Of Constraints leads to incredibly rapid improvements in performance. By identifying what limits sales, TOC enables organizations to renew with growth and avoid downsizing. You could call it focused Lean. 1 + 1 = 3.

About the Theory of Constraints


The Theory Of Constraints (TOC) was developed by Eliyahu Goldratt and promoted thanks to the best-seller The Goal, first published in 1984.

The method, although not as well known as Lean, is nevertheless more and more relevant today, and is based on simple concepts: it starts from the principle that in any system there is a resource whose capacity is less than the others; the system is unbalanced.

As a result, seeking the full performance of all means/resources individually will not improve system performance; instead, we need to focus on the element with the least capacity, the system constraint. By concentrating Lean improvement initiatives in the right place, the Theory of Constraints enables us to improve performance more rapidly.

Discover how to optimize your improvement approach with fast, concrete results, by focusing on 1% of the resources that determine 99% of the company's overall performance. By identifying what's limiting sales, the Theory of Constraints enables you to return to growth and avoid the process of continuous lay-offs.

In this webinar, Philip Marris, who has over 30 years' experience in the use of Theory of Constraints (TOC), presents the essential features of TOC, between theory and practical cases, drawn from Marris Consulting assignments.

The webinar ends with a question and answer session.
