Who Uses TOC?

TOC is being used at Medgar Evers College CUNY to subscribe to the following observations of the TOC for Education website. The website gives an idea of how TOC is being used in elementary and secondary schools and in community work around the world. There are also numerous links to other related websites.

TOC provides a logical and proven way to develop conflict resolution, decision making, problem solving and effective management in personal as well as institutional projects.

The TOC thinking process tools are generic and work without regard to age, culture or political differences.  Applications in education improve student behavior, academic learning and school governance.  Millions of students around the world use TOC to resolve conflicts and become better problem solvers.

Public school education in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines ranks very high in the world according to various studies on International education.   TOC for Education has initiated successful programs in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines that have been sponsored and acclaimed through their Ministries of Education in support of improved curriculum delivery and student conduct.  The TOC for education website has testimonials from all stakeholders in education (students, parents, counselors, teachers, principals, superintendents,  Ministers of Education) from many nations including Colombia, the United States, Singapore, Israel, Mexico, Serbia, Philippines, Venezuela, the United Kingdom, Malaysia, Russia and the Republic of South Africa. 

More than 100 universities and schools, including the University of Michigan, Ohio State University and Wayne State University in the US and others abroad use several TOC tools.  Many well known “Ivy League” business schools use constraint management to run all of their operations.  It is a required course in business graduate courses for MBA’s around the U.S. and abroad.

This theory has been applied by the Department of Defense.  At well-known successful multi-national corporations such as Proctor and Gamble, TOC is a part of the corporate culture. TOC is also being used by corporations and industries that are losing money to turn themselves around to make a profit in a very short time.  At least fifteen percent of the world’s businesses currently use TOC or constraint management, according to Eli Goldratt.
