About The Institute
The TOC-Lean Institute was founded to help
businesses gain knowledge and grasp the benefits that the fusion of Theory of Constraints and Lean
techniques can bring to both manufacturing and service industries.
For many companies the implementation of “Lean” has become a critical aspect of their operation – yet
many companies also report that their Lean initiatives have not led to the expected bottom-line
improvements! At the same time it is also accepted that the range of tools and techniques contained
within the Lean toolbox is powerful when used in the correct manner.
Using the focusing power of the Theory of Constraints (TOC) can sort out the toolbox –
results. TOC techniques are able to identify the priority areas and concentrate improvements where
they will have the most impact on the overall performance of the company. TOC methodology works
perfectly well with Lean, helping to identify the right tool for the job and guiding people through
the application in order to achieve better global performance.
TOC-Lean thus provides a high degree of
focus which is both in tune with reality and achievable on a practical level.
We offer a range of proven solutions and highly effective courses
addressing issues of strategic
development, leadership development, Continuous Process Improvement and flow management. We provide a combination of education and training at all levels, both in-company and at our training
centre in Melton Mowbray. Most courses use presentations, computer simulations,
video case studies, practical workshops and debate, which ensure the proper transfer of knowledge
within the organisation and the ability to use that knowledge to improve bottom-line performance,
implement solutions and achieve both growth and stability.
We are also an approved examination centre for TOCICO, the
International Certification Organization for TOC practitioners.
