Two noteworthy educational events for supply chain managers will be staged next week. We encourage SCMR readers to check these out:

World-Renowned Expert in Theory of Constraints to Speak at UT June 24

Theory of Constraints is a management tool based on the assumption that any system, no matter how complex it seems, is governed by only a few elements.

An internationally recognized expert on how businesses can resolve complex management dilemmas and increase profitability by removing organizational constraints will speak at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, on Monday, June 24.

Rami Goldratt, chief executive officer of Goldratt Consulting, will lead an interactive seminar, Creating the Ever-Flourishing Company Using the Theory of Constraints (TOC), at the Center for Executive Education in the UT College of Business Administration.

Upper-level managers across all industries are invited to the seminar, which will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is open to the public. The cost is $825, which includes course materials, breakfast, snacks and lunch.
