What is the Theory of Constraints?

Theory of Constraints (or TOC) is a holistic management philosophy originally developed by the late Dr. Eliyahu M. Goldratt that is based on the principle that any complex systems exhibit inherent simplicity, i.e., even a very complex system or value chain will – at any given time- have only one weakest link or system constraint that limits its performance. By employing TOC, one can find and overcome such limiting factors to unlock the inherent potential of any system.

What is the Theory of Constraints International Certification Organization?

Since its origins in the late 1970’s, TOC as a body of knowledge has continued to evolve through the ongoing efforts of TOC experts around the world. TOCICO is the International Certification Organization of Theory of Constraints practitioners, implementers and educators. TOCICO’s stated goals are to provide platforms to further develop the TOC body of knowledge and to offer certification in this body of knowledge.

One such platform is TOCICO’s annual International Conference. The International Conference provides an opportunity for TOC experts and those new to TOC to share and learn about TOC applications and developments through the presentation of actual results obtained by implementing the TOC processes. Areas of implementation are manufacturing, distribution, sales and marketing, project management, service industries (Private and public), supply chain management, IT, finance and measurements, government and healthcare, education (public and private) and the melding of TOC + Lean + Six Sigma (TLS).
