TLS = Open TOC + Good Lean + Good Six Sigma. Presentation by Philip Marris at the TOCICO annual congress in Frankfurt in June 2013. It is argued that TLS enables companies to improve faster and reach even higher levels of performance than using one of the elements alone.
Each component is redefined:
Good Lean = Toyota = Growth (no downsizing) + Mindset + NPD
Bad Lean = A process of continuous downsizing.
Open TOC = TOC is powerful, it is necessary but not sufficient.
Closed TOC = TOC is the best, TOC is the only way.
Good Six Sigma = Data + VOC + Focused DOE projects.
Bad Six Sigma = A lot of belts, a lot of projects, few results.
