Summary/Abstract: In the business environment characterised by globalisation, the internationalisation of business, shortened product life cycle, the application of new production, information, and communication technologies, changes in the requirements of increasingly selective customers, etc., it is becoming more difficult to achieve, maintain, and improve competitive advantage. Numerous constraints stand in the way of achieving, maintaining, and improving competitive advantage. In different steps of the theory of constraints, the constraints that prevent the company and its divisions from achieving higher performance are identified, and the ways to mitigate their negative effects and overcome them are sought. The aim of this paper is the overview of possibilities of applying lean concept techniques in the theory of constraints, and analysis of their joint effect in the context of overcoming the different constraints in business operations, with the purpose of improving enterprise performance.
