Hi John, thanks for invitation. Unfortunately I was unable to join the conference this year in Texel. I did some work as a role of consultant for Nokia too some years ago. Take care, let's keep in touch Pirjo

Hi John,

thanks for the invitation to connect!
Here's two links (copy & paste) to "Theory of Constraints" á la Eli Goldratt:
The first one has a further link to a page about the book "Deming & Goldratt" by Lepore & Cohen - where ToC meets TQM ...

Travel safely in Kentucky & co. !

Kind regards,

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
