Hear from a past participant:

 

Great course to study and mitigate impact of bottlenecks in a process with concrete tools and methodologies provided. This would be familiar to anyone who has a background in process operational improvements but the teachers share personal case studies that illustrate the ideas in a powerful manner. Prof Farias is an exceptional teacher, energetic, inclusive and very sharp which makes for an interesting couple of days. Worth the time and effort for those who are into operations management.
