You know something is keeping your agile organization from successfully reaching its maximum potential, but you don’t know how to figure out what that thing is. Treating the symptoms seems to be adding a lot of band-aids to your process and they don’t seem to work anyway. When you try to change many things at once it wastes energy and distracts your people.
Imagine what a difference it would make if you could find the one constraint which is holding your organization back. What if you could focus your energy in the one place which would make the most difference? You can! Our Constraints Assessment Workshop does just that. The workshop is based on The Thinking Process promoted by renowned Theory of Constraints expert Eli Goldratt.
