Supply chain academic and consultant Dr Eli Goldratt died at his home on Saturday 11th June.

Goldratt created the Theory of Constraints, a framework for helping companies continually to achieve their goals, which he introduced in his book “The Goal.” He also founded the non-profit organisation Theory of Constraints for Education.

His colleague Hugh Williams, managing director of Hughenden Consulting, said: “I spent six years working with Eli and without doubt this time changed the entire direction of my life… Rest in peace, Eli.  Your contribution to supply chain lives on.”
