Necessary but not sufficient
Necessary and Sufficient Video Series
Dr. Eli Goldratt shares his life’s work revealing what is necessary and sufficient to get fast results in today’s bottom-line oriented economy and establish a foundation for future successes.
During this 10-session series, Dr. Goldratt shows how today’s management assumptions and rules need to be changed in order to obtain impressive, long lasting bottom-line results.
Dr. Goldratt challenges the role of software, the reason for technology, the underlying rules of logistics, supply chain, information systems and presents in a concise way the basis of the Theory of Constraints, as well as its implications when implementing TOC as a holistic approach for continuous improvement. One of the sessions, “The Offer”, is devoted to a revolutionary offer, where clients and technology providers establish a relationship based on true bottom-line results.
For executives who:
- want to know “what is the Theory of Constraints?”
- are looking for common sense in management,
- are searching for solutions in today’s global competitive environment,

After reading the newspapers and following the sharp oscillations of the stock market, it becomes apparent that hi-tech companies are of a different breed. Never before have the chances of making a fortune been so realistic and never before have large companies been so fragile. What is really going inside of these hi-tech companies? What types of pressures and challenges are they facing? And how do they cope?

In the nineties we witnessed their growth from small business into multibillion dollar giants. No wonder investors were attracted. In 1998 it was easy for these companies to raise as much money as they wanted. But now, investment funds ave dried up. Why? And more importantly, is there a way to reverse the trend? This book gives the answers.
