Dr. Eli Goldratt, Best-Selling Author and Creator of the Theory of Constraints, to Appear in Los Angeles

TORRANCE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 26, 2007 -- In partnership with California Manufacturing Technology Consulting (CMTC), Dr. Eli Goldratt will be making a rare public appearance in Southern California on March 13, 2007. Goldratt has joined forces with CMTC to advance his latest concept, Viable Vision, and will present area manufacturers with an opportunity to experience exponential growth in a day-long event at the Ritz-Carlton Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, CA.

Dr. Goldratt is perhaps best known as the inventor of the Theory of Constraints (TOC). Goldratt's groundbreaking book "The Goal" has been a best seller since 1984. "The Goal" has sold more than 4 million copies worldwide and has been translated into 27 languages. He is also the author of "It's Not Luck," the sequel to "The Goal," "Critical Chain," "The Haystack Syndrome," and "The Race."

Goldratt is also an internationally recognized leader in the development of new business management philosophies and systems. He developed a unique set of logical and systematic thinking methods designed to understand the true goal of an organization, to identify and improve the root causes of problems, and to implement continuous improvement strategies that lead organizations to reach their goals. His theories are sought after by many of the world's largest corporations. Eli Goldratt's Theory of Constraints is used worldwide by thousands of companies, and is taught in hundreds of business schools, universities and colleges.

Viable Vision is Goldratt's newest innovation designed to help companies get the maximum financial payback from their TOC-based improvements by achieving, within 4 years, net profits equal to their total current sales. Viable Vision is the comprehensive step-by-step process, developed by Goldratt himself that successfully leads companies on a systematic improvement journey.

The opportunity to meet and experience Dr. Goldratt and his Viable Vision for manufacturing companies is limited. Attendance will be capped at 150 people to ensure access of attending companies to Viable Vision's possibilities. The cost for this full day event is $595.
