Dr Eliyahu M Goldratt, 1947 - 2011

Dear TOC Enthusiast,

A litte over 1 month ago Dr Eliyahu M Goldratt (father of Theory of Constraints and one of my mentors) was diagnosed with lung cancer. It quickly spread and Eli passed on June 11, 2011.

I was fortunate to spend time with him in Israel before his passing. His last days were spent transferring knowledge and getting a small team ready to present and facilitate on his behalf at the TOCICO conference.

We completed that mission yesterday. And I believe it was a big success. We focused on tranferring a process to "Stand on the Shoulders of Giants". This process will ensure that the TOC community continues to thrive.

To give you an idea of how to stand of the shoulders of those that came before, check out this article: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants by Dr Eliyahu M Goldratt (big file with some hand written notes, so be patient while it downloads)

Sincerely,
Dr Lisa
President, Science of Business
