Dr. Alan Barnard presents
"Creating Breakthrough Solutions using the Change Matrix Cloud (CMC)"

About the Webinar: In this webinar, Dr. Alan Barnard will present a new TOC development, the Change Matrix Cloud or CMC.  Combining Dr. Goldratt’s Evaporating Cloud and the Change Matrix to present a simple, yet powerful method for systematically and collaboratively developing breakthrough solutions by exposing and challenging those few assumptions that block us from resolving planning and execution conflicts  

Over the past 18 months, this method has shown to be effective for solving conflicts within both private and public sector organizations as well as for individuals. 

Dr. Barnard will present the method in a simple step-by-step method:

1. GAP Analysis: what's the problem and why is it important to solve. 

2. Conflict Analysis: what are the planning and execution conflicts that block us from dealing with the problem - using Change Matrix Cloud to define both the positives and negatives of making a change or not). 

3. Conflict Resolution: Exploring four simple ways (Dr. Barnard four methods) to identify the most viable way to achieve more more positives and less negatives, while soliciting stakeholders input ("yes, buts...") to improve the solution.

4. Defining Solution as new Best Practice: Converting the new solution into a Best Practice in a Strategy and Tactic Tree node format that clearly answers the When, What, Why, How, and Why Not.
