We help organisations work smarter through innovations in productivity that challenge conventional thinking, empower the individual and transform with technology.
When you see your value-creation engine as a whole system, you can find the constraint that’s holding you back, then focus your resources to exploit it to maximum effect.
What is the Theory of Constraints?
TOC is a powerful system of management that helps you focus on your goal. Developed by the late physicist-turned-management consultant Dr Eli Goldratt, the theory applies scientific principles to practical business challenges. Through rigorous systems thinking, Goldratt challenged conventional wisdom and changed the way organisations focus on results.
The method provides logical tools to construct, test and communicate strategic intent (Logical Thinking Process); three methods to increase the flow of value in areas such as projects (CCPM), production (DBR) and distribution (DBM); and a goal measurement (Constraint Accounting) framework to maximise profit and drive optimal operations.
We are experts in applying the TOC to key business activities such as operations and program management. Rather than cutting costs to achieve today’s results, we focus on releasing more power from existing resources within your system to generate more throughput. In an era of continuing austerity, this is particularly appealing for large firms who can avoid laying off staff while growing confidently into the future.
