#853 Goldratt – The Theory  of Constraints
Principle:
QUOTES:
[1] Scripture

Theory of constraints is based on the premise that the rate of goal achievement by a goal-oriented system (i.e., the system’s throughput) is limited by at least one constraint. The argument by reductio ad absurdum is as follows: If there was nothing preventing a system from achieving higher throughput (i.e., more goal units in a unit of time), its throughput would be infinite — which is impossible in a real-life system. Only by increasing flow through the constraint can overall throughput be increased. [2]

How could this clarify my Reality?
How could this benefit if added to my Disciplines?
Who needs to hear this?
