2nd Half Day:
CONSTRUCTING A GOOD STRATEGY TACTIC TREE
The Strategy and Tactic (S&T) Tree is a comprehensive tool that provides clear overview of the way the desired development of the company will be achieved. The main advantage of this tool is that, for every management level, it provides detailed justification of the necessity of planned steps and the way the planned actions will bring about expected outcomes.
The standard S&T Trees were developed by Dr. Eli Goldratt and cover major TOC logistical applications. However, when there is a need to adapt an existing S&T Tree to a specific company, or to build a fully customized S&T Tree from scratch, this may represent a major challenge.
In the master class I present an outcome of six years of development work with companies helping them understand the inherent logic of the S&T Trees and techniques of constructing it. I present rules, examples, and exercises that I have developed in the four areas of constructing an S&T Tree:
- the content of the entities in the S&T boxes;
- the relationship between the entities within the same box;
- the vertical relationship between the S&T boxes;
- the S&T structure.
