I was recently invited by the founders of the IMN Business Club London, Richard and Nina Peutherer, to share my research and insights why we sometime make really bad decisions and other questions you might have been curious about…. 1 .Why is Failure MUCH more common than Success? 2. What are the avoidable decision mistakes … Continue reading Why do we sometimes make really BAD Decisions?
Event: 7th International TOC Practitioner Alliance Conference, 2013
In this video, Dr. Alan Barnard, CEO of Goldratt Research Labs, presents his research on why we often fail to learn from experience and a new decision analysis process he developed called the ProConCloud method (or ChangeMatrixCloud) for ensuring we learn the right lessons from experiences where there was a consequential expectation gap.
Venue: TOCICO International Conference, 2010
In 2008, Random House Publishing invited Goldratt Research Labs to conduct a research study on how to sustainably and profitably reduce the level of shortages and surpluses in book publishing. In this presentation, Dr. Alan Barnard, CEO of Goldratt Research Labs shares the findings of this research project and the results achieved by implementing a Theory of Constraints solution to reduce shortages and surpluses both at RH distribution centers and their retail customers that participated in the pilots which included Barnes & Nobles, Amazon and independent book sellers.
Event: Anylogic International User Conference, 2016
In this keynote presentation at the Anylogic 2016 International Simulation Conference, Dr. Alan Barnard, CEO of Goldratt Research Labs presents an exciting research project where he shows how they’ve used a self-configurable supply chain simulation model to validate the operational and financial performance improvement to Microsoft in implementing a Theory of Constraints- based Supply Chain solution to improve availability while reduce inventories and lead times for different order fulfillment strategies. After validation, the TOC best practice SCM solution was implemented within Microsoft’s SAP system.
Event: Keynote at Intel Leadership Conference, 2016
In this keynote at the Intel Accelerate Results conference, Dr Alan Barnard, CEO of Goldratt Research Labs, presents his insights on how organizations and individuals can transform themselves from Fragile to Robust to Antifragile. Antrifragile is a concept introduced by Nassim Taleb and describes systems that are not harmed but benefit from volatility.
Event: Anylogic International User Conference, 2015
In this presentation at the ANNYLOGIC 2015 user conference, Dr. Alan Barnard, CEO of Goldratt Research Labs and Dr. Andrey Malykhanov presents a simulation model they developed for an end-to-end mining supply chain to test whether a PUSH vs. PULL vs. HYBRID based supply chain management strategy will give the best customer service, profitability and cost/ton performance for supplier and customers. The “PULL” logic was based on the principles of Theory of Constraints (developed by Dr. Eli Goldratt) and the latest work by Dr. Nassim Taleb on how to design systems that are not just robust, but Antifragile – ones that are not harmed by, but can benefit from volatility.

Research shows that 70% of all ICT projects such as SAP implementations are not deemed a “great” success. This is despite the fact that the power and coverage of the technology and implementation know-how has grown dramatically. Could Theory of Constraints (TOC) help suppliers and customers unlock the inherent value potential of an ICT project like an SAP implementation?…
