Title: The Theory of Constraints: Benefiting from Bottlenecks - Continued!

Description:   Constraints are commonplace throughout organizations, but are they clearly understood?  The purpose of this presentation is to deepen our understanding of constraints (bottlenecks), discuss constraint measurement, and consider the project management implications of this dynamic.

Our Presenter: Dr. David Greisler

David Greisler, DPA is a fulltime faculty member in Graham School of Business at York College of Pennsylvania.  He teaches Organizational Dynamics and Change Management, Applied Operations Management, Total Quality, Lean Systems and Business Strategy in both the undergraduate and graduate programs.  Dr. Greisler is past Director of the York College MBA program.  In April of 2011 was appointed The Eichelberger Chair of Business Education … the first endowed chair in the history of York College.  Dave does focused consulting in both service and manufacturing settings emphasizing process improvement, organizational assessment and change, strategic planning, and executive coaching.

Prior to joining York College in the fall of 2002, Dr. Greisler spent twenty-two years in the healthcare industry.  Fifteen of those years were with WellSpan Health, an integrated healthcare delivery system serving southcentral Pennsylvania.  In his last five years with WellSpan he served as a Chief Operating Officer at WellSpan Health, focusing on Wellspan Medical Group, a then 235 physician multispecialty group practice.  The Medical Group had 51 office locations in York and Adams counties.  The key metrics of ‘providers,’ ‘locations,’ and ‘revenue’ grew by greater than fifty percent during Dave’s tenure with the Medical Group.

Dr. Greisler holds an undergraduate degree in the Natural Sciences from Johns Hopkins University, a Master in Health Service Administration from George Washington University, a Master in Public Administration from the University of Southern California, and a Doctor of Public Administration from the University of Southern California.  In 2013 he successfully completed the Lean certification exam through the Society of Manufacturing Engineers and is 6-Sigma certified through Drexel University.  As the primary author of more than 50 professional publications (including one textbook), Dave has presented his writings at both national and international conferences.
