Do you often feel frustrated that you are not achieving your goals? When last have you invested five days in looking at what you really want and how you can achieve it? The Odyssey Program can help you close the gap between your expectations and your current reality by learning and applying the Theory of Constraints' thinking processes to your life.

We are excited to announce that this year's Odyssey 5-day Freshman and 3-day Alumni programs will again be held back-to-back from 30 July to 6 August in Israel, in honour of the late dr. Eli Goldratt, the visionary behind the idea of Theory of Constraints (TOC) and the founder of the Odysssey program, initially developed by dr. Goldratt to teach critical thinking skills based on TOC thinking processes to young adults. These skills are necessary to investigate expectation gaps and related conflicts and identify how to close these gaps by identifying and challenging limiting assumptions – not only in an organizational or industrial context, as TOC maintains, but also in our personal lives. Even if you are not knowledgeable in TOC, or have never heard of it before, you will find that this program will help you answer the important questions of why you should change, what you could change, and how to cause and measure this change whilst achieving ongoing improvement in the process to achieving your life’s goals.

The venue for our program is the Herods Hotel, situated on the beach of Tel Aviv - a vibrant, modern city that is architecturally known for its buildings in the Bauhaus-style that originated in early twentieth-century Germany, but situated in a country with ancient roots and many significant archeological sites to visit, such as neighboring port Jaffa, one of the most ancient towns in the world.

This international conference, which brings together participants from around the world, will help you see through sharing that the world really is "flat” after all – that we all experience similar life challenges, no matter where we are from or how far down the journey of life we are. Past experience has shown that this is also a place where lifelong friendships are established among like-minded people.

We also invite those attending the Freshman Program to join past attendees for the Alumni Program (that will immediately follow the Freshman Program). The concept and content of the Alumni program was developed by Dr. Eli Goldratt, designed in a way which builds upon skills learned in the Freshman Program, challenging and guiding the newly graduated and past Alumni to make a major breakthrough in an important topic where no major advance has been made recently, relevant to both our personal and professional lives.

Please keep in mind that space is limited for both programs and reservations will be accepted on a first-come, first served basis through our website,

We look forward to seeing you there!

Dr. Alan Barnard
Chairman, Odyssey Institute
