Theory of Constraints


The Theory of Constraints maintains that every system in a business has at least one constraint that prevents the system from attaining infinitely high level of performance. These often unidentified constraints often prevent it from attaining infinite profits. Like links in a chain, the weakest link causes the entire chain to be weak.

This two-day workshop explores the power of Theory of Constraints, and teaches you the fundamental tools that will allow your team to identify the constraints in each departmental section of the corporate chain and improve performance in that area, thus improving the performance of the entire organization. This seminar helps everyone to better focus the improvement efforts underway in your organization.
