Eliyahu M. Goldratt
Eliyahu Moshe Goldratt (1947 -2011) was an educator, author, scientist, philosopher, and business leader. But he was, first and foremost, a thinker who provoked others to think. Often characterized as unconventional, stimulating, and “a slayer of sacred cows,” Dr. Goldratt exhorted his audience to examine and reassess their business practices with a fresh, new vision.
Dr. Goldratt created and developed the Theory of Constraints (TOC), an overall framework for helping organizations and individuals to determine:
• What to change---find and use the leverage point
• What to change to---create the simple, practical solutions
• How to cause the change---build a secure and stable improvement environment.
Dr. Goldratt was an internationally recognized leader in the development of new business management philosophies and systems. He was a sought-after educator by many of the world’s largest corporations, including General Motors, Procter & Gamble, AT&T, NV Philips, ABB and Boeing.
He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree from Tel Aviv University and his Masters of Science, and Doctorate of Philosophy from Bar-Ilan University. In addition to his pioneering work in business Management and education, he held patents in a number of areas ranging from medical devices to drip irrigation to temperature sensors.
Dr. Eliyahu M. Goldratt was the founder of TOC for Education, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing TOC ideals to teachers. After retiring from the Avraham Y. Goldratt Institute in the mid 90s, he founded Goldratt’s Marketing Group to make the TOC knowledge available to the market in the form of self learning resources, Goldratt Consultingt o bring companies to being ever-flourishing, and Goldratt Schools to teach and train individuals seeking to expand their TOC knowledge – the Goldratt Group was created.
