This review is from: Reconstructing Your Worldview: The Four Core Beliefs You Need to Solve Complex Business Problems (Kindle Edition)
Very good, concise.
Principles are in line with intuition and well known practices.
1. Past experience shape assumptions... This is the origin of paradigms and difficulty to change paradigms. It is "built-in"
2. Language is perception's silent partner... Again enhancing paradigm, we believe, we tell, we listen, we live in paradigm. It is "given"
3. Improve performance by identifying and fixing a system's key constraints... Complexity scares all of us, we try to slice complex systems to manage and understand and we found ourselves in cost World of local efficiencies.
4. Behavior is control of perception.... This is the end of Newton's "dead substances" era, living substances are violating Newton's principles and all other concurrent practices in economics, management,... We are in Chaos Theory era, dynamic, variable and dependent occurances..
In TOC "paradigm shift" concept brings all four principles together, shows a practical way ahead..
