Name of the course:
TOC, Theory of Constraints

Brief description:
"Do you have an out-of-the-box spirit? Do you think about how to improve or transform your way of thinking on organizations? Or, do you desire to find feasible ways to improve or transform organizations and activities with organizations? If you answer any of these questions with “yes”, or desire to answer any with “yes”, the course on the theory of constraints suits you well.
The course focuses on the Theory of Constraints (TOC) of Eliyahu M. Goldratt – the author of the bestselling book the goal. TOC is an overall management philosophy based on the premise that the rate of goal achievement in organizations is limited by a constraint. The concept “constraint” is key in TOC. A constraint limits the performance of the whole organization. Improving the constraint has, therefore, a positive effect on the whole - TOC assumes.

The aim of the summer school is to help participants to experience and gain more insight into TOC’s philosophy. Each management philosophy has its advantages, which can only be achieved if profound knowledge of the philosophy is gained and understood. Furthermore, knowledge has limited impact without experience.  Therefore, we will work with theoretical introductions and with exercises in whcih you can apply the gained knowlegde
