Title: Processo de Pensamento da Teoria das Restrições: Uma Abordagem para Compreensão, Aprendizagem e Ação sobre Problemas Complexos. (Theory of Constraints thinking process: an approach to understanding, learning and action on complex issues).
Abstract: Current research, scientific studies and academicians have addressed the problem of understanding, learning and acting on organizational problems. Differences in people's perceptions about organizational problems or situations can sometimes block people's ability to overcome difficulties. These differences in perceptions may have different causes such as: employees' view of the world, assumptions, emotions, among other reasons people have. Therefore, one needs a tool or a methodology to serve as a guide for discussions. Oriented discussions can generate a shared vision of the problem, collective learning and possibly greater effectiveness in overcoming the difficulties. In this sense this paper seeks to explain the Theory of Constraints Thinking process as a driver for organizational learning. Finally, the authors presents some limitations and benefits of this approach.
