This book is about how the Theory of Constraints (TOC) approach to project management can be best applied to the construction industry.

The author will help you see your organization in a different focus - global not local - and will show you that improving performance is not about optimization of components, but rather about optimization of the whole system. Bottom-line improvement is not always about investing in more capacity, but rather about getting more from what you have by gaining control.

Through a collection of case studies, drawn from research and practical experience, the book addresses the real issues facing many project-based organizations. It is the only book on the practical applications of TOC within construction and will be of great value to anyone involved in the practice or study of project management, and to anyone seeking to operate an enterprise focus.

Above all, this book is about how to make money now and in the future by releasing the imagination and intuition of the people within your organization.
