Learn the latest innovations in how companies are Leveraging the Theory of Constraints

A Pathway to a Sustainable Future

The Goal & Beyond
Leveraging Your Improvement Initiative with TOC

What’s the ONE thing you could do to improve what you’re already doing? ADD Theory of Constraints! By adding a small amount of TOC to a project, or part of your operations or supply chain, to sales or even your thinking, you can leverage existing initiatives for even bigger results.

Since “The Goal” was first introduced, the Theory of Constraints (TOC) has evolved and developed into one of the top business improvement methodologies used in the world today. But the little-known secret is that most TOC success stories are due to a small addition of TOC rather than wholesale adoption. One pebble can bring big Innovation!
