Bill Dettmer, renowned Theory of Constraints expert and author of six best-selling Theory of Constraints books, including Strategic Navigation, Goldratt's Theory Of Constraints, The Logical Thinking Process, Manufacturing at Warp Speed (with Eli Schragenheim), and Breaking the Constraints to World-Class Performance, gave an exclusive preview of the new edition of his book Strategic Navigation. In this book, he describes why he believes that the systems thinking ideas of Senge, Ackoff, Cilliers, Boyd, snowden & al. can be combined with the thought process of the Theory of Constraints. He believes it is a true navigation guide rather than just a planning guide, explaining not only how to create a good strategy, but also how to execute the journey. This conference was therefore a rare event to get a glimpse of the latest thinking on strategic planning and execution from a renowned global expert.
