I'm ejoying a lot the course; the way the whole process has been integrated and simplified is amazing, particularly the S&T part. I didn't like a single bit the last half an hour of introductions and comments from the Odyssey attendants in Las Vegas. I think I understand the purpose to have it there, and I think it is wrong and, personally, counterproductive.

Dr Alan Barnard is one of the best TOC Guru I have ever met. He has very innovative ways of explaining the concepts with real world cases

Yes, very satisfied with course. Like the app too. Wondering how the app is used in a group setting in an organisation where answers will not be one liners. The examples were kept simple for easy understanding of the concepts and use of app.

la cantidad de tiempo enfocado es nuestro cuello de botella. si esto es cierto, como aprovecho el tiempo para tomar las decisiones y avanzar mas rápido.

This course taught me how to "make better, faster decisions when it really matters"! The ProConCloud method is such a practical way to map out your conflict in a graphical way! It ensures that you consider not just the Pros and Cons of making a change, but also the often overlooked Pros and Cons of not making a change. Using the methods learned in this course helped me to decide whether or not to rent out my previous property or rather sell it. It helped me discover a win:win option and take into consideration valid reservations and implement mitigating actions to prevent possible adverse outcomes. Using the Harmony Decisions Maker mobile app will also make it easier for me to continue using this method now and in the future. Thank you
