TLS and Velocity novel - 1 page by Claude Emond | Project Times | TLS - TOC, Lean & Six Sigma | Scoop.it

[…] Goldratt and his followers have done it again! This time for the world of continuous improvement management. […] business novel, “Velocity” […] a story telling about realizing rapid and significant continuous improvement results through integrating three approaches: TOC, LEAN and Six Sigma. […] So LEAN, Six-Sigma and the like do not produce good results if applied without taking care of real organisational constraints. […]  traditional approaches have us working very hard to achieve almost no improvements. This integrated approach is even trademarked as iTLS ™ […]

[TLS] is a major breakthrough, that has been going on for at least the last four years. Was I the only one of us sleeping through the birth of TLS? About time I woke up to Velocity!

Why Standardize? - Post by Jamie Flinchbaugh | IndustryWeek | TLS - TOC, Lean & Six Sigma | Scoop.it
... Much emphasis in the lean world is placed on standardization in many forms, from standardized work to 5S. But why standardize? [...]  Creating, maintaining and improving a standard requires effort. Like any cost, there should be a return on that investment, even if incalculable. We shouldn't want to just standardize something because we think standardization is good. [...] Here are some specific starting points for the benefits of standardization. 1. Performance gains. If one person or team can do something in 1 hour that takes everyone else 3 hours, copying that best practice across multiple resources...

Work blocker - Scrum, Kanban, ToC, 5 Whys etc. applied to software development article by Troy Magennis and Klaus Leopold | Infoq.com | TLS - TOC, Lean & Six Sigma | Scoop.it
When work gets delayed (it’s blocked), it is of particular interest to look for ways to improve the smooth flow of work by resolving the causes of that delay. In the long term, finding ways to eliminate the root causes of these delays is a superior solution. This article discusses clustering blockers and provides ways to prioritize those blockers that have the most impact or are the quickest wins.

DevOps Transformation using Theory of Constraints by Evgeny | DevOps Pro | TLS - TOC, Lean & Six Sigma | Scoop.it

For several years IT companies have been exposed to more and more blogs and conferences talking about DevOps, arguably the hottest topic since Agile. Those who follow the DevOps movement for some time might have also noticed that many presentations and blog posts repeatedly mention the Theory of Constraints by Dr. Eliyahu M. Goldratt. In fact “The Phoenix Project,” a book which many consider a must-read for any DevOps manager, was declared by its author Gene Kim that it was written using the exact same structure as Dr. Goldratt’s best seller novel “The Goal.”...

Video 40 mins - How TOC thinking can and should be connected with Lean and Six Sigma thinking? - Helsinki TOCPA conference by Philip Marris - March 2017 | TLS - TOC, Lean & Six Sigma | Scoop.it
TLS, the combination of the Theory of Constraints plus Lean plus Six Sigma is a very powerful cocktail. ToC can be used to identify the constraint of an organization and Lean or Lean Six Sigma can then be used to improve the constraint’s performance and this will directly impact the overall performance of the organization. By staying focused the impact of your Lean (and Six Sigma) initiatives will be significantly boosted. Several case studies will be presented by Philip Marris who has over 25 years of experience of implementing TLS in all kinds of industry.
