Operational excellence is the result of activities and improvements. They must have a (significant) positive impact on the bottom line.
Experience has told me that in most companies’ management seeks local improvements. Local managers improve their operations partly in isolation. Often the result is the deterioration of constraint performance. Company performance depends on constraint performance. The effect of local optimization on the bottom line is clear.
Early in the course, I will describe several cases. These achieved a lot of improvement that led to very big jumps in profit and profitability.
What you learn helps you reverse this.
You can get a double whammy during the course:
What you achieve with your operation is the best certification you can get.
The course is unique. You learn the Theory of Constraints (TOC) concepts of focus and flow. TOC marries well with Lean and 6-Sigma. The book “Velocity” shows how the 3 improvement philosophies work well together. You can implement it during the course and achieve benefits before we finish.
A study (Continuous Improvement Trio) where 21 factories implemented one of 3 improvement philosophies – Lean (4 plants), Six Sigma (11 plants) or TLS-TOC, Lean, and 6 Sigma (6 plants). TLS accounted for 89%, Lean 4%, and Six Sigma 7% of the savings.
This course focuses on TOC and operations excellence. From the results, I show it seems obvious the TOC is a powerful lever for much greater improvement.
As DR. Eliyahu Goldratt often said, “TOC is just common sense. It is not (yet) common practice.”
Managers are responsible for the bottom line – Profit and Profitability. This includes:
You will learn how to find your constraint. You find yours and will then apply TOC to exploit it better for your business.
