1 day Workshops

  • Distribution Logistics

Supply chain competitiveness is recognised as critical to successful management of business yet few organisations have mastered how to simultaneously achieve low inventory investment (cost) and high customer service. Its usually boils down to low cost /low service or high cost /high service. Goldratt has introduced a rather daring and simple solution that defies common beliefs and practice and it works. Time after time companies are achieving lower inventory levels together with significantly improved service levels generating more profits and reducing costs.  

  • Goldratt Insights Series (per subject) Operations, Projects, Distribution and measurement/Throughput Account ing. Dedicated workshops provide greater opportunity to work with your own business using real numbers to illustrate how the principles can be applied in your business.

2 day Workshops

  • Project Management, Critical Chain Project Management -single and multi-project environments - Work books supplied.

Participants are introduced to a radical yet simple approach to project management that avoids the many causes of project failure. The program starts by first understanding the core problem that leads to projects failing 4 out of 5 times. Understanding the causes alone is not sufficient to deliver better outcomes but is important. A primary cause of project failure is the way we assign "safety" to project estimates. This safety is poorly managed and is shown to obstruct project completion. Through workshop simulation exercises we build a new set of rules for managing projects. For both single and multi-project environments particpants learn how to plan and execute projects in typically 2/3rds the normal time with less cost with full scope. The ones that do fail, fail by a very small margin when compared to current methods. 

  • Manufacturing and Service Operations - Production the TOC Way - Simulation software and Work books supplied

6 day Management Skills Program

  • Day to Day decision making and communication at Warp Speed. Work books supplied.

Every session provides sufficient material to implement a least one TOC principle in your work place to be able to witness a significant improvement in performance if the principles are implemented as taught. The longer duration session deliver greater content and therefore more improvement potential. Session fees are very affordable. Contact us for further information.
