All Organisations Consist of 20 Lane Motorways and  Narrow Bridges

We need to identify the narrow bridges (constraints) and ensure a consistent flow of materials and information.

Constraints can be :

  • People - lack of training, lack of awareness.
  • Poor information flows – slow, paper based, not integrated or direct.
  • Poor design of the value adding system (often no design at all)
  • Principle 6: Anything that “costs” must add value

“Before saying how a Process should be performed we must make sure to understand what the process should achieve.”
