Constraints Management Model :: CMM

Picture worth a thousand words (click on image for larger version) H. William Dettmer has granted permission for me to share this chart. It captures the reason for my excitement for his Constraints Management Model (CMM), which is the combining of Eli Goldratt's Theory of Constraints (TOC) and Col. John Boyd's OODA Loop. As documented in Dettmer's Strategic Navigation. If you are not a military history buff, skip the first 26 pages. But if you are serious about producing results, this is the one Dettmer book to own. Of course, like most of us, you will want The Logical Thinking Process as well. -ski P.S. If it is not obvious, the power of CMM is in the action that Boyd brings to the table. The action that the OODA Loop demands of the implementor. If your projects are places where resources go to die, then buy this book today! Disclaimer: H. William Dettmer is client, however, we make no income from the sale of his books. ---- Jeff 'SKI' Kinsey, Jonah Hilton Head Island, SC | Las Vegas, NV Phone: (330) 432-3533 tag: ©2008 LLC.
