Seminar Offers Rare Chance to Hear How Goldratt's Theory of Constraints Enables Companies to be Ever-Flourishing

COLLEGE PARK, Md., April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech) Manufacturing Assistance Program is co-sponsoring a rare, free seminar with Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt, whose famous Theory of Constraints (TOC) enables companies to be Ever-Flourishing, continuously and significantly increasing value for employees, customers and shareholders.


The seminar will be held on Thursday, April 14, 2011, from 9-10:30 a.m. at the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) in Catonsville, Md.

Dr. Goldratt's lectures and insights are usually available only to companies that can afford high-ticket consultants.

An internationally recognized leader in the development of new business management philosophies and systems, Dr. Goldratt's work is carried out by executives, educators and consultants around the world and utilized by many of the world's largest corporations, including IBM, Procter & Gamble, AT&T, NV Philips, ABB and Boeing. BP implemented the Theory of Constraints in the suppliers of equipment used to contain the oil spilling in the Gulf of Mexico, and then also used TOC project management ideas to dramatically speed up the containment.

Unconventional, stimulating, and a "slayer of sacred cows," Dr. Goldratt exhorts his audience to examine and reassess their business practices with a fresh, new vision.  A process of ongoing improvement is a concept you don't yet understand enough.

Goldratt's lecture is hosted by The Regional Manufacturing Institute (RMI) of Maryland, with sponsorship by Mtech's Manufacturing Assistance Program, the Maryland World Class Consortia (MWCC), the Technology and Innovation in Manufacturing and Engineering (TIME) Center, APICS (The Association for Operations Management) Baltimore, JPB, Baltimore County Economic Development and Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development.
