Boeing Speaker Series – Goal Trees

Register through handshake!

About the event

Have you ever wondered how to proceed with an idea, or what to do to get there? Or been part of a team which just can’t seem to find direction? Constant conflict, arguing over the purpose and/or next steps? A common challenge in all these scenarios is an unclear, and unshared, perspective on the desired end state, and what is required to create or improve it.

The Goal Tree, as part of the Theory of Constraints Logical Thinking Process, is specifically meant to help individuals, teams, and organizations figure out what they want and what must be true for that reality to exist. Personal plans, problem/opportunity analysis, and organizational focus can all benefit from a well-constructed Goal Tree. This session introduces the concepts, elements, and application of this valuable and high-impact tool.
