A major rewrite of Dettmer's traditional Goldratt's Theory of Constraints, this new edition provides a whole new technique to building and applying logic trees. The logical thinking process described in the title is nothing less than a broadly suitable, systems-level technique to policy analysis.
Dettmer has structured the process of constructing the logic trees while concurrently making sure that the outcomes are more logically sound and closer representations of truth than ever before. He discusses a much easier, more logically sound method to integrate Current Reality Trees with Evaporating Clouds. His new variation of the thinking process "retires" the Transition Tree in favor of the marital relationship of a more comprehensive Prerequisite Tree and crucial chain project management.
This book includes new examples of logic trees from a range of real-world applications. Most of the diagrams and illustrations are new and enhanced. Descriptions and treatments for constructing the logic trees are substantially simplified.
Completely new to this edition is an unique graphical software application - Transformation Logic Trees, designed mainly to develop thinking process logic trees and just secondarily for other flowcharting uses. Appendix J in the book provides more info on how to download a trial variation and make use of the software.
