Day 3 has been action packed. Rushing between breakout sessions always seems to drain more of an attendees energy than sitting in coordinated sessions in one location.
Today I’ve had the great opportunity to watch four presentations, with another soon to start:
- USing TOC and Critical Chain to Pull People Out of the Favelas in Brazil by Bill Taylor where he shared his first attempt at a Unified Field Theory of Management model.
- SDAIS – A Road Map for Continuous Success by Dee Jacob of AGI Goldratt. AGI works with the U.S. Navy’s aviation logistics organizations. I’m excited to read Ms. Jacob’s book, Velocity.
- Personal Challenges in Implementing TOC by Oded Cohen of Goldratt Schools where he described the challenges a TOC manager has in gaining the support of superiors, subordinates and peers.
- Implementing a Process of On-going Improvement (POOGI) at Great Lakes Copper Inc. to Drastically Increase Capacity by Chris Mitchell and Jack Warchalowski about a copper mill in Ontario that used DBR and total TOC solutions to revive their business.
I’m waiting now to listen to Structured Practical Techniques for Implementing TOC by Andrew Kay of TOC3 of Australia.
If any of the titles sound interesting to you, just post a comment with your questions and I’ll see if I can answer them. We’re all learning here together.
Perhaps my friends at the conference who attended other sessions will post what presentations they attended and offer the same service (Hint to Steve Holt and Hilbert Robinson especially).
Back to the conference I go.
