TOC – SELF LEARNING PROGRAM ON OPERATIONS – DBR AND BUFFER MANAGEMENT

PURCHASE The key to replicating Alex Rogo\’s achievements described in The Goal lies in the ability to transform production from the prevailing cost-world mentality into the common sense approach of the throughput-world mentality by evaluating the performance of a section based on its impact on the performance of the system as a whole.

SLP2

TOC – SELF LEARNING PROGRAM ON FINANCE AND MEASUREMENTS

PURCHASE Finance, as a key function in any organization, must be able to answer critical questions: what is the company\’s performance? do we invest in equipment and machinery? should we make or buy? should we use profit centers or cost centers? what is the profit of a product/service? Reality and research have shown that cost-accounting based decisions and using local measurements can be devastating to the performance on the shop floor, marketing, sales, engineering, purchasing and even distribution.
SLP3

TOC – SELF LEARNING PROGRAM ON PROJECT MANAGEMENT AND ENGINEERING

PURCHASE Projects, like operations, involve many resources which have to carry out many tasks in order to accomplish pre-determined end results. Projects (especially in multi-project environments) have characteristics which drastically differentiate them from production. Learn how projects can finish ahead of time, within the allotted budget and without compromising on the content.

SLP4

TOC – SELF LEARNING PROGRAM ON DISTRIBUTION AND SUPPLY CHAIN

PURCHASE With the exception of companies whose stated business is retail, most companies tend to ignore distribution. This is a huge mistake. Since every company is a link in a supply chain, most already realize that as long as the end consumer has not bought, nobody has sold. The biggest clot in the supply chain – the majority of the inventories – are usually found in the distribution stage. If a company wants to prosper its managers must understand how to help the distribution link to drastically improve its performance.
SLP5

TOC – SELF LEARNING PROGRAM ON MARKETING

PURCHASE Marketing should not be confused with sales nor with advertising. Marketing is the ability of the company to bring the market to want its products. In other words, the ability to create a competitive edge. Rarely can a company devise effective marketing without the involvement and contribution of managers from all functions.

TOC – SELF LEARNING PROGRAM ON SALES AND BUY-IN

PURCHASE
As part of the most comprehensive and holistic perspective of TOC, Dr. Goldratt presents the TOC applications to sales and buy-in.

SLP7

TOC – SELF LEARNING PROGRAM ON MANAGING PEOPLE

PURCHASE The key to managing people is mutual respect. Why is it so difficult to give and get respect? In spite of all good intentions, what blocks us?

The essential elements required to manage people are well known:

  • conflict resolution
  • empowerment
  • team building
