Advanced Section – PowerPoint Presentations – Chicago 2012


This presentation was made as one of the 3 finalists for the inaugural Goldratt Foundation New Knowledge Award at the 2012 TOCICO conference at the Q Centre, Chicago.   A video of the full presentation can be viewed on TOC.tv by following this link;

The conference powerpoint is also available at TOCICO.

The link below is to my original powerpoint.  It is in .ppsx format, that is it is a slideshow.  It should download and run in presentation mode for you.  If experience shows that it opens in editing mode, and your system offers the prompt “open, save, save as” then select save and then open and it will run for you.

The Systemic Cloud & The Layers Of Resistance, Chicago 2012

Shortly after the New York conference I managed to integrate the change matrix (actually change matrices) into the cloud.  This enabled me to map graphically things that I had been doing in English sentences in the assumptions of each side of the cloud up to that date.  More importantly because I could map the layers of resistance into the matrix I could also map the layers of resistance into the assumptions in the cloud.  This presentation shows the basics of this technique applied to systemic clouds.
