Dr. Eli Goldratt
Dr. Eliyahu M. Goldratt
1947 – 2011

Eli Goldratt is an educator, author, scientist, philosopher, and business leader. But he is, first and foremost, a thinker who provokes others to think. Often characterized as 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.

 

He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree from Tel Aviv University and his Masters of Science, and Doctorate of Philosophy from Bar-Ilan University. In addition to his pioneering work in Business Management and education, he holds patents in a number of areas ranging from medical devices to drip irrigation to temperature sensors.

 

He is the author of “THE GOAL”, an underground best seller that utilizes a non-traditional approach to convey important business information–it is a business textbook written in novel form, disguised as a love story. The ideas illustrated in “THE GOAL” underscore Dr. Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints, an overall framework for helping businesses determine:

  • What to change—what is the leverage point
  • What to change to—what are the simple, practical solutions
  • How to cause the change—overcoming the inherent resistance to change.

 

In the subject of production, Dr. Goldratt also wrote “PRODUCTION THE TOC WAY“, a self-learning kit for manufacturers interested in applying TOC techniques and spreading them within their companies.

 

Dr. Goldratt wrote the sequel to “THE GOAL”, “IT’S NOT LUCK”. All aspects of the corporate structure are revealed in his unique way, as the Theory of Constraints peels away the common nonsense and reveals what lies hidden beneath our inertia.

 

Eli Goldratt’s novel, “CRITICAL CHAIN”, reveals the reasons projects never finish on time or within budget or within specs, and develops an alternate TOC approach to managing projects. The action in Critical Chain takes place in a university setting and also deals with the problem facing academic institutions with large graduate business programs – MBA programs that are not producing what businesses need.

 

In addition, he has written several other books; “THE RACE”, “WHAT IS THIS THING CALLED TOC?”, “THE HAYSTACK SYNDROME”.

 

One of Goldratt‘s masterpiece is an eight session educational series: the GOLDRATT SATELLITE PROGRAM (now available on DVD and on CD-ROM as a Self-Learning Program). This series is a common sense approach to business that provides a global picture that illustrates how functions/departments fit together allowing managers to obtain a solid grasp of seeing the company as a whole. Through this series a common language and understanding is acquired which will enhance the quality of decision making, improve communication and stimulate new solutions, providing benefits for the entire company.

 

Dr. Goldratt‘s book “NECESSARY BUT NOT SUFFICIENT” was published in the Fall of 2000. This novel reveals that although new technology may be necessary in order to make major improvements, this technology is not sufficient to achieve results.

 

Eli Goldratt’s TOC INSIGHTS, developed with Avraham (Rami) Goldratt, cover all the aspects of logistics (Operations; Finance and Measurements; Project Management and Engineering; Distribution and Supply-Chain). This material not only outlines the details of all the logistical applications of the Theory Of Constraints, but is as digestible as “THE GOAL”; gives the entire common sense logic and is short; is enticing to novices, still an eye opener to experts; and was created as self-learning material also ideal for teaching groups.

 

In the Fall of 2008, Dr. Goldratt published his latest book, “THE CHOICE”, where once again he presents his thought-provoking approach, this time through a conversation with his daughter Efrat, as he explains to her hsi fundamental system of beliefs.

 

In the year 2000, Dr. Goldratt established Goldratt’s Marketing Group to make TOC knowledge available to different market needs. Since then GMG has produced and distributed TOC learning resources for individuals, such as books, videos and CDs, self learning programs, simulators, and the latest GOLDRATT WEBCAST SERIES all availble thorugh www.TOC-Goldratt.com and www.TOC.tv.

 

In 2002 Dr. Eli Goldratt founded the Goldratt Group by also establishing Goldratt Consulting and Goldratt Schools, with the purpose of Making TOC the main way of managing organizations. The Goldratt Group aims to place any system, large or small, for profit and not for profit, on a process of ongoing improvement.

 

Goldratt Consulting is dedicated to spreading the use of the Theory of Constraints in organizations. Goldratt Consulting is currently running large scale projects called “Viable Vision” in companies across the world, while Goldratt Schools role is the transfer of knowledge, providing training to organizations seeking to expand their knowledge in the Theory of Constraints and its applications.

 

Also the founder of TOC for Education, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing TOC ideals to teachers, Dr. Goldratt spends his time writing, lecturing and consulting as well as traveling, thinking and being as provocative as ever.
