Practical guide to TOC TP and software included,
I have read the previous version first. It was a usual text book focusing on tools. There was study questions but no answers have been provided.
This time it is an updated version. Tools have been explained in a context of actual case.
We need to determine success factors first as a benchmark for continuous improvement: Intermediate Objective Map.
Then we need to determine UDEs as identified gaps of actual and benchmark, search for root causes: Current Reality Tree.
Then we need to identify hidden conflict behind the root cause: Evaporating Cloud.
Then we need to brainstorm breakthrough ides and be aware that ideas are not solutions: Future Reality Tree.
Then we need to plan our project to reach future state: Prerequisite Tree.
This is the point I like: Author reveals from his experience that Transition Tree is not favoured by new comers.
Actually having a more detailed PRT than expected and transforming it to Critical Chain Project Management rather than TRT is more useful.
I do like the CD attached to the book and Thinking Process software. Fortunately CD content was enough to launch the software and have a tutaorial. Unfortunately given websites and links are not responding.
There were case studies again and there were no solutions again :(
