What to change to? (Webinar #2 of this 3-part Series)
presented by Mickey Granot and facilitated by Eli Schragenheim
Wednesday, December 16, 2020 | 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST (Eastern Time ~ New York)
TOCICO is excited to offer a series of three (3) LIVE webinars about applying TOC tools and knowledge to the Process of ongoing improvement. The objective of these workshops is to provide participants with insights and pathways to applying the TOC Thinking Processes (TP) for analyzing a system towards effectively designing and implementing an improvement process. Each webinar will have a short presentation followed by a practical example to present the application of the tools to a real case. There will be time at the end of the session for Questions and Answers. This series is open for all. The intention is for both novices as well as experienced TOC experts to get a clear view of how to effectively use the tools for getting good answers to these important questions: What to Change (the problem)? What to change to (the solution)?, and How to cause the Change?
What to Change? December 9, 2020
The concept of GIGO (Garbage In Garbage Out) is well known by everyone. A good improvement project can hardly be any better than the quality of information used to design it. What is a system? What are its boundaries? How would you measure improvement? Why is the system not better now? How would you analyze the collected information? How to effectively use the ToC TP in this process? And what is the core cause? All of these are critical questions that when answered correctly lead to powerful understanding and set the base for designing powerful solutions. Explore the TOC Thinking Process tools including: UDE’s (Undesirable Effects), UDE Clouds, CRT (Current Reality Tree), and the Core/Generic Cloud.

As important it is to effectively define the core cause, it is still easy to go astray when coming to define the solution. How would you identify the erroneous assumption on the generic cloud? What should be the injection to invalidate it? How would you use the ToC TP to validate the direction of the solution? To develop the details needed to convert it from an idea to practical solution? Explore the TOC Thinking Process tools including: FRT (Future Reality Tree) and NBR (Negative Branch Reservation).

Obviously, the last part where the change process can go astray is when coming to convert it from ideas on paper to execution. What are the practical steps needed for that? How would you use the ToC TP in this process? How to involve others in the process so that they make the necessary commitment? Explore the TOC Thinking Process tools including: PrT (Prerequisite Tree), TrT (Transition Tree) and S&T (Strategy & Tactics) Tree.
