Evaporatingclouds.com was originally build to help the user with very specific questions regarding the entities of the cloud itself. Having a well-formulated problem is said to provide half the solution.
An important part of the other half is to surface assumptions beneath the arrows of the cloud. While the software has proven its value in helping the user state the conflict as a cloud, it offered much less guidance on how to surface assumptions.
That has changed now, as we are implementing an idea originally proposed by Kelvyn Youngman, on how to combine the Evaporating Cloud and the Change Matrix.
The feature is currently password protected, but feel free to reach out on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to test this feature.
We are excited to announce that our new website is now online.
Ten years after the original evaporatingclouds.com webapp was released, an update was appropriate.
With the update, we have changed the platform to WordPress. This move enables us to easily add more features to the webapp in the future.
All users and clouds have been moved to the new platform, so you shouldn’t experience any problems accessing your clouds.
Feel free to comment below.
We present an interactive web application designed to complement and expand upon the well-known conflict resolution tool termed as “evaporating cloud” and developed by Dr. Eli Goldratt, founder of the “Theory of Constraints”.
- We acknowledge the help sought from the extant literature put forth by several other TOC experts such as William H. Dettmer, Lisa J. Scheinkopf, Vicky Mabin, James Cox and Kelvyn Youngman.
