Discussing The Issue of Focusing: What Should We Focus On?
Presented by Eli Schragenheim
Saturday October 28, 2017
8:00 am- 9:30 am Israel Daylight Time UTC+3
Goldratt described TOC in one word: Focus.
But, do we fully understand what we should focus on? What should we definitely not focus on? How many issues should be within our focus? What is the difference between the focus for the organization and the individual focus on one manager?
Just to feel the potential dilemma, let’s remember one insight of Goldratt:
Segment your market – do NOT segment your resources
Don’t you think that segmenting the market might de-focus the marketing efforts?
Let’s have a discussion, even a debate, after relatively short presentation.
