Evaporating Cloud presentation for Operations Management class at BCIT. This is my first upload to slideshare. Most of my presentation was done using ppt animations, so this is not exactly what it looked like.

Evaporating Clouds i.e. The Conflict Resolution Diagram

  1. 1. Evaporating Clouds<br />Watch in slideshow<br />(video removed to reduce filesize)<br />By Kyle Stadnyk<br />i.e. The Conflict Resolution Diagram<br />
  2. 2. Evaporating Cloud - system developed to resolve conflicts in a &quot;win-win&quot; manner. <br />Evaporating Clouds<br />Conflicts, like clouds, are often indistinct. I.e., People are unable to articulate the real reasons for the conflict. <br />i.e. The Conflict Resolution Diagram<br />
  3. 3. Evaporating Clouds<br />“The Evaporating Clouds method does not strive to reach a compromise solution, rather it concentrates on invalidating the problem itself.”<br />- Eliyahu M. Goldratt<br />i.e. The Conflict Resolution Diagram<br />
  4. 4. Evaporating Clouds<br />D:<br />Prerequisite<br />B: Requirement<br />A: <br />Objective<br />C: Requirement<br />D’: <br />Prerequisite<br />i.e. The Conflict Resolution Diagram<br />

Evaporating Clouds<br />We must…<br />We must…<br />In order to…<br />D:<br />Prerequisite<br />B: Requirement<br />In order to…<br />Because…<br />Because…<br />A: <br />Objective<br />How To Evaporate the Cloud<br />In order to…<br />We must…<br />Because…<br />The statement after “because” is an assumption<br />i.e. The Conflict Resolution Diagram<br />
  6. 6. Evaporating Clouds<br />Example:<br />Miko sat down in Economics class last week. It was really stuffy in class so he opened the window. Miko works better when there is cool air. After a few minutes Nihleen commented “It’s really cold in here.” She then got up and closed the window.<br />i.e. The Conflict Resolution Diagram<br />
  7. 7. Evaporating Clouds<br />D: Open Window<br />B: Have <br />Cool Air<br />A: <br />Be Productive<br />C: Have a Warm Room<br />D’: Close Window<br />i.e. The Conflict Resolution Diagram<br />

  9. 9. Evaporating Clouds<br />Evaporating Cloud and Lean Production<br />D: Run Large Batches<br />B: ↓ Setup cost/unit <br />A: <br />↓ cost/unit<br />C: ↓Carrying cost/unit<br />D’: Run Small Batches<br />i.e. The Conflict Resolution Diagram<br />
  10. 10. Steps to Evaporate Clouds<br />1:Find assumption: Read each pair from left to right<br />“In order to….I must…..because”<br />The statement after “because” is an assumption<br />If stuck, add absolute wording like “always”, <br />Generate as many assumptions per pair as you like<br />2: Invalidate assumption: Find an injection (action) that will make the assumption invalid.<br />Evaporate the Cloud!<br />i.e. The Conflict Resolution Diagram<br />
  11. 11. Evaporating Clouds<br />Exam Questions:<br />Draw and label the evaporating cloud diagram for conflict resolution.<br />In order, what are the three phrases or words used in the Evaporating Cloud model for conflict resolution?<br />Attract, convert, profit<br />Consider, analyze, identify<br />In order to, we must, because<br />Stabilize , analyze, influence<br />i.e. The Conflict Resolution Diagram<br />
