This Webinar Interview is about being able to spot cases where the original assumptions behind the TOC templates, or even the basic applications, cannot work exactly as described in the current TOC known practices, and thus the solution has to be changed in a certain way. This means that while TOC is truly capable to generate great results, more in-depth questions must be asked, and one has to keep the TOC mind in order to come up with the best working solutions.
At least three different examples concerning MTO, the oldest and most detailed TOC solution, will be described and a certain mode of analysis will be suggested to check our own assumptions.
This should be most interesting to both consultants and practitioners that while strongly convinced of the TOC effectiveness, are open to some practical questions coming from wide scope of different environments.
