Dr. Goldratt discusses the evolution of TOC: how the identification of major system problems led to the development of solutions and significant system improvement only to surface the next system problem …. Thus the evolution of TOC followed the natural scientific approach to system improvement.
As the developer of Theory of Constraints, he has brought the mind of a scientist to the problems and needs of business, private sector organizations, and individuals. His scientific approach has led to the breaking of several business paradigms and the development of new simplified approaches to managing systems.
In the section, his chapter leads forward to the remainder of the book where the depth and scope of the TOC concepts are seen in action.
