    Episode 7 - Yaniv Dinur

    Yaniv Dinur greeted me at a Chicago hotel with a big smile despite his busy schedule. He definitely belongs to the "people are good" camp. Yaniv is a TOC expert that has been one of the closest to Dr. Goldratt as an executive with Goldratt Consulting.
    Today Yaniv implements TOC projects and breakthrough software with the company he founded "Progressive Flow". You can hear that he is genuinely concerned about the future of TOC and isn't shy about pointing out what he thinks the root cause is.

    Practical TOC Episode 5 - Thinking Processes

    The TOC thinking processes are a set of tools that help us with analyzing what to change, what to change to and how to make the change. They are based on common sense and cause and effect logic that guides us to overcome obstacle as they're being discovered. The tools are extremely useful and help organize the thoughts around finding the root causes and injecting a solution that will actually work.

    Practical TOC Episode 4 - Advanced CCPM

    Practical TOC Episode 4 - Advanced CCPM

    In this episode I provide additional insight into CCPM, I discuss additional reasons to those mentioned on episode 3 for projects delays and talk about how to address them with CCPM. I also talk about the important role of CCPM software.
    BTW - I increased the playback speed by 3% thinking the listening community will appreciate a faster talk. For some reason it caused some pauses in between sentences to be shorter then natural. I'm still learning the ropes of running a podcast and this is a mistake I'm not going to repeat.
