Dr. Alan Barnard is one of the leading Decision Scientists and Theory of Constraints experts in the world. He is the CEO of Goldratt Research Labs and worked for over 20 years with his mentor, Dr. Eli Goldratt, creator of Theory of Constraints and best-selling author of The Goal. Alan’s research has focused on understanding why good people make and often repeat bad decisions within their personal lives or at work and to develop simple methods and apps to help people avoid such mistakes to make better faster decisions when it really matters
Over 20 years ago, Dr. Barnard told me his goal was to develop a simpler, faster and better decision support method to replace Benjamin Franklin’s Pro-Con List, which after 250 years, is still the go-to method for most people when facing important decisions. The Pro-Con List has many benefits but also significant limitations that I believe Dr. Barnard’s new ProConCloud method can overcome. Over the past few years, I have seen how management teams and students from around the world have already made major breakthroughs using the 5-step ProConCloud method. It helped them discover and overcome self-limiting assumptions and beliefs and create new solutions with more Pros and less Cons than what they thought possible. Only time will tell, but I believe Dr. Barnard’s ProConCloud might just achieve the very ambitious goal of becoming the next go-to method for anyone wanting to make better faster decisions when it really matters.
