Developing Predictive Measures with Throughput Accounting
Dr. Charlene Spoede Budd was my guest on the Business901 Podcast and as you would expect our discussion was about The Theory of Constraints Through-put Accounting and the application of the knowledge that we gain from this information. We discussed the use of accounting throughout the organization for developing predictive measures versus reactive. This is not your regular accounting discussion.
Dr. Budd was a contributor to the recent Theory of Constraints Handbook on two separate subjects:
- Traditional Measures in Finance and Accounting, Problems, Literature Review, and TOC Measures (Chapter 13 of Theory of Constraints Handbook)
- A Critical Chain Project Management Primer (Chapter 3 of Theory of Constraints Handbook)
