While no-one likes to admit it out loud, there is a huge degree of frustration in industry where time, energy and money has been invested in popular Improvement technologies but the results are a let-down.  When smart people, perhaps using smart consultants, deploy “proven” improvement technologies and get mostly disappointing results… something is missing.

That something is a combination of Focus and Leverage.

I will walk the group through 15 tactics borrowed from Theory of Constraints that help management capitalize on their investments in the popular technologies to produce fast, large improvements to Competitive Edge Performance factors and generate a ROI worth bragging about.

Our Guest Speaker

Steve Jackson project-managed his first MRP implementation in the UK in 1976. 23 more implementations followed in the next 8 years, in Europe and North America.

In 1988, based in Vancouver, Steve started working with Dr. Eli Goldratt, author of The Goal and originator of the Theory of Constraints (TOC). He was in Eli Goldratt’s 2nd ever “Jonah Training” class and as a “Jonah” then a “Jonah’s Jonah” he helped expand the TOC body of knowledge from Synchronous Manufacturing to Throughput Accounting, Distribution & Supply Chain, Sales, Marketing (the Mafia Offer), Project Management (Critical Chain), Management Skills, Strategy & Tactics, and the TOC Thinking Processes.

For 6 years, Steve taught ½ day, 1-day, 2-day and 10-day workshops on behalf of Eli Goldratt’s organization across North America.

During the 28 years since his initial training, first working with Dr Goldratt then as an independent consultant, Steve has worked with the TOC while Zero Inventory, Just In Time, Total Quality, ERP, Lean, Six Sigma and many other variations of improvement technologies emerged (and sometimes faded) … and TOC either competed with, or worked with, these technologies inside organizations of all shapes and sizes.
