The Theory of Constraints offers a simple but effective process improvement process: the “5 focusing steps”. The 5 steps consist of continuously: • Making the goal of the system explicit • Finding the bottleneck where the system’s constraint lies • Exploiting the constraint to get the most value • Subordinating every decision to the constraint • Elevating the bottleneck The session introduces the Theory of Constraints, Lean and Agile with a playful simulation. After the simulation, participants apply the techniques to real-world cases in a workshop.
