The Theory of Constraints, with Ed Hill
3 days ago
The theory of constraints with Ed Hill If you pull a chain until it breaks, it only breaks in one place. That’s the principle behind the theory of constraints, first introduced by Eliyahu Goldratt and made popular in his and Jeff Cox’s book, The Goal. Every business has limiting factors – places where its “chain” is most likely to break. And whether you call them your weakest links, your constraining factors, or something else, Ed Hill has tips on how to strengthen them. Ed is a systems expert who helps businesses understand and overcome the theory of constraints. One such business was my partner Bill’s – the Marena Group. Here’s what Bill has to say about the experience. “Ed guided us to a world-class operational system that delivered literally millions of dollars of wealth into my pocket the day I sold the Marena Group. “How? His system improved our financials, boosted employee morale, helped us measure the right things, and increased customer satisfaction. “And he saved us millions, too. Because of Ed we were able to reorganize and work in the space we had, instead of being forced to move into a bigger building.” Ed’s process, which he calls “synchronous flow” strengthened Bill’s “chain.” Many of Ed’s clients report similar experiences after being educated on the theory of constraints and working through his system.
