Video placeholder

This course addresses fundamental Theory of Constraints (TOC) concepts, tools and techniques used by managers to increase performance within their organization. Topics include Principles of Flow, Five Focusing Steps (constraint-based approach to process improvement), Work-In-Process (WIP) control, and application of TOC to better manage production (Drum-Buffer- Rope) and project management (Critical Chain) work systems. The course will also highlight how TOC principles have been applied across the Air Force. No prior TOC training is required to take this course. The course is offered virtually as a synchronous, instructor-led class via MS TEAMS in two separate three hour sessions (typically consecutive days).
