Goldratt and the Theory of Constraints

The Quantum Leap in Management

Uwe Techt

ibidem Press

This book uses engaging language and real-life examples to provide an overview of the methods and tools of the theory of constraints: drum-buffer-rope, buffer management, throughput accounting, pull distribution, irresistible offer, corporate strategy, and viable vision. It explains how to recognize and use constraints, complete projects quickly and reliably, and gain a competitive lead and turn it into profit.
Excellent, very recommendable! Wolfram Müller, Speed4Projects.net

Our projects are taking too long!
How can projects become even faster?
Our clients aren't queuing for our products
How can I convince everyone else?
So is ToC a corporate strategy?
Looking ahead
