# Elli Goldratt and his Theory of Constraints. What determines your power on the road? Dr Korwar showed a slide which depicted an extremely crowded road. On such a road, even driving a Ferrari would be useless. Throughput depends on the slowest component, not the fastest. In the “road example,” it was necessarily the tongawallah – the slowest vehicle on the road that would cause the traffic jam. The strength of a chain is determined by its weakest link. Every system has 1. One constraint 2. that Chokes throughput and causes 3. Bottleneck. Look out for the slowest.
