TOCPA is an international professional platform aimed to share experience of bringing companies and organizations to operational excellence using Theory of Constraints.
TOCPA is aimed to give TOC practitioners and those interested in TOC the opportunity and ability to grow their knowledge and address practical issues and challenges that they face in their quest of bringing TOC to their organizations or to their clients.
TOCPA is the place for people who know TOC, love TOC and want to deal with practical issues – to contribute to the TOC community and to draw from the wealth of knowledge and experience that exist within the community.
TOCPA Membership is by invitation only, on approval by the TOCPA Founding members.
This is to ensure that all members have a good base knowledge of TOC and their interest is in making it happen – to implement TOC solutions or TOC methodology with the view of bringing wealth to their organizations.
“I smile and start to count on my fingers: One, people are good. Two, every conflict can be removed. Three, every situation, no matter how complex it initially looks, is exceedingly simple. Four, every situation can be substantially improved; even the sky is not the limit. Five, every person can reach a full life. Six, there is always a win-win solution. Shall I continue to count?”
Theory of Constraints (TOC) is a managerial approach developed by Dr. Eli Goldratt to allow businesses and organizations to achieve breakthrough improvements in their performance. TOC provides a set of holistic processes and rules, all based on a systems approach, that exploits the inherent simplicity within complex systems through focusing on the few “leverage points” – constraints – as a way to synchronize the parts to achieve ongoing improvement in the performance of the system as a whole.
