Thank you to all of you who attended the conference

Learn the latest developments in how companies are Leveraging the Theory of Constraints (TOC) for: 
Addressing significant improvements in supply chain

After a significant improvement in most areas of businesses in products and services, supply shortages and service interruptions have become the order of the day as the world grappled with the COVID virus.

Currently, there is evidence of a transition to regional supply chains, with new trade

agreements, and the onshoring of manufacturing.  These attempts are expected and are good, but will they truly solve the problem of shortages

As we know, applying existing knowledge and practices is no guarantee to deliver on time in full – whether it is a local, national, or transnational supply chain. 

This conference has the timely opportunity to introduce the TOC Way to generating breakthroughs in supply chain management and manufacturing to deliver in full in less time

Improving flow in operations

Attendees will have the opportunity to witness presentations and talk with speakers on many of these important topics;

  • Are you experiencing long replenishment times? 
  • Are you sparring with suppliers on the lack of service levels?  
  • Are you experiencing low or depleted inventories with empty shelf space? 
  • Do late deliveries have major consequences for your customers? 
  • Would you like to improve your inventory turns? 
  • Are you going to meet, beat or miss on revenue targets? 
  • Are protecting your due dates getting more and more expensive? 
  • Are you struggling to attract employees during a labor shortage? 
  • Are you short on skilled workers?


By leveraging TOC in your operations, projects, supply chain management, sales, and existing initiatives you can achieve significant results

Tracking Finance and Performance Measurements

Are your performance measurements and data analytics properly targeted to measure and encourage the needed performance of your organization and supply chains?

Are you using accounting rules based on distorted data and information in making business decisions?

You will experience presentations that will expose you to using the proper data that actually reflect the results of decisions and targets real profitability.

Managing Inventories to Improve Service levels

Supply chain interruptions have unfortunately become an expectation.  From the bull-whip effect on items such as toilet paper and baby formula to worldwide logistics and transport delays, managing inventory at all levels in the supply chain has become increasingly difficult.

With this day-to-day uncertainty, it has also become increasingly difficult to manage inventories to support required service levels while being cash responsible to hold the correct inventory.

Improving Project Management

If you were to do an internet search on Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM), you will likely be amazed by the power that CCPM has added to the very large discipline of Project Management.  Significant improvement in Project Management’s Big Three targets of projects being:

  • On Spec
  • On Budget
  • On-time

The critical chain has also been leveraged in more than traditional project environments such as supply chain and operations.

Aligning Technology to Support On-Going Improvement

The Role of Technology: 

In the past 30 years, many of the advancements that TOC has developed have been embedded in many software applications and enterprise systems and have been leveraged with other world-class improvement processes such as Lean, Six-Sigma, TQM, and Dev-Ops, and Agile. Advances in the design and application of technologies have recognized this and have embedded these improvement methodologies into software applications in use every day by much of the business world in many industries.

Especially from TOC the disciplines such:

  • Improving flow, 
  • Demand-Based Replenishment
  • Critical Chain
  • Buffer Management

Have been embedded in many enterprise-wide software applications

The conference theme includes how technology can be leveraged to further add resilience and certainty to the mission to eliminate shortages by learning how to better leverage these capabilities that already exist in your organization.

To Create a Future with No Shortages

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 send big waves!

In all TOC implementations, a few key characteristics are apparent:

  • The solutions are inherently simple – it’s common sense but not common practice.
  • Investments and operating expenses are minimal or nothing.
  • The results are almost instantaneous.
  • Firefighting is eliminated.  Harmony results.
  • The results are multi-dimensional: improved profit; more with the same resources; better and timely performance; improved morale.
  • No mass education effort is required.
