On the second day of the 2017 TOCICO International Conference Alex Knight was awarded the TOCICO Lifetime Achievement Award. Alex has pioneered the application of Dr Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints in many industries across the world, including healthcare, financial services, manufacturing and FMCG.
The core concept of the Theory of Constraints is that every process has a single constraint and because of that the total process throughput can only be improved when the constraint is improved. A constraint is anything that prevents the system from achieving its goal.
