TOC Thinking Processes are highly effective management tools that enable individuals to resolve significant issues in any domain, without making a compromise. Several organizations have used these to empower their employees, and that has, in turn, led to quicker, improved decision-making, breaking silo mentality, and challenging deep-rooted mindsets. The fundamental belief of TOC is that erroneous assumptions hold us back from realizing our full potential. Thinking Processes provide a step-by-step methodology to surface the limiting assumptions.
JOIN THIS WORKSHOP to build skills in the areas of problem-solving and change management. Our past workshops have been attended by senior leaders from companies such as Airtel, ITC, Aditya Birla Group, Dr. Reddys, Kurlon, Tata AIG, Flipkart, Accenture, Honeywell, Wipro, to name a few.
Theory of Constraints (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, first introduced the concept in his best-selling book The Goal, a business novel. He 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.
Goldratt was an educator, author, scientist, philosopher, and business leader. But he was, first and foremost, a thinker who provoked others to think. The real strength of TOC lies in its Thinking Processes, which was first introduced in Goldratt's book Its Not Luck (also known as The Goal II).
