Theory of Constraints is a management tool based on the assumption that any system, no matter how complex it seems, is governed by only a few elements. Identifying the system’s constraints and managing them accordingly produces rapid improvement and fosters harmony throughout the system.
Goldratt follows in the footsteps of his father, the late Eli Goldratt, the founder of the Theory of Constraints and the author of “The Goal.” The best-selling book introduced TOC to a wide audience, and it remains one of the most popular business texts of all time.
Prior to serving as CEO of Goldratt Consulting, Goldratt was CEO of SFSCo (Solutions for Sales Co.). SFSCo supplies sales and marketing experts for Viable Vision projects, a holistic solution based on the Theory of Constraints that has been implemented at companies worldwide. Goldratt holds a master’s degree from Tel Aviv University in Israel.
