CPA – Throughput Accounting (English Description)

TA – Throughput Accounting 

(Performance management for Agile coaches, CPA and CxO)

Class description:


Throughput Accounting from Dr Eli Goldratt is a scientific approach that stresses the importance of managing the constraints in your systems to increase the impact of operational decisions. It is both an operational and financial model toward continuous improvement.


Throughput Accounting is unique. It applies to operational decision making – a tenet of everything agile – and has an immediate impact on the bottom line. It also holds at the project, portfolio, product, division and individual levels.

Throughput Accounting is part of the Theory of Constraints’ body of knowledge left behind by Dr Eli Goldratt. It applies today more thane ever in solving complex management problems thru crisp and fast decision making.
