Rapid Bottleneck Resolution (RBR)

The RBR process increases company throughput by increasing a bottleneck’s throughput within 6-8 weeks.



In many situations bottlenecks take project teams by surprise, as they may lack effective procedures to resolve them. Frequently we meet recurring symptoms in bottleneck areas, such as:


• Absence of top management agreement on the real bottlenecks


• Lack of specific skills and other resources


• Efforts towards increasing the availability of the scarce skills


• Bad Multi-tasking habits done at the bottleneck


• Incomplete input to the bottleneck


• Change of priorities



The RBR contains two main deliverables:


1. Agreement by top managers on bottlenecks


2. Define and execute a plan to increase throughput in the shortest time


Within two weeks, we identify the real bottleneck after interviewing the relevant people and conducting a quick analysis.


By working closely with your team, we will set up a plan that includes:


• Setting targets for short term improvements


• Reducing Bad Multi-tasking at the bottleneck


• Implementing a gate with a full kit process to improve input


• Synchronizing with other departments


• Daily process of fast issue resolution. We assist the team to implement a rapid issue resolution process on a daily basis and provide a weekly report for top management.
