Have you ever had to make a huge decision in life and you just don’t know what to do? Maybe it’s whether to change jobs? To leave a marriage? Or perhaps you feel stuck in the same cycle – of smoking or overeating – even though what you want most is to breakthrough and give this up. Well now there’s an App that can help you make that decision and work out exactly what has been holding you back.
Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s based on the same ground-breaking problem-solving process that Dr Alan Barnard has developed over 20 years and used with Fortune 500 companies, the UN, governments and NGOs. He saved Microsoft a quarter of a billion dollars in one financial year and helped the UN
Dr Alan Barnard
Dr Alan Barnard is one of the world’s leading Decision Scientists and Theory of Constraints experts. He is CEO of Goldratt Research Labs, the team behind the award-winning ‘ProConCloud’ method and the ‘Harmony Decision Maker’ App.
Alan works with Fortune 500 companies as well as the UN, government agencies and NGOs.
At Microsoft, Alan’s ground-breaking system redesigned the company’s supply chain and saved Microsoft a quarter of a billion dollars and increased sales by hundreds of millions of dollars within the same financial year. Microsoft’s CTO Robert Meshew described the result as “nothing short of remarkable.”
Fascinated by how some individuals become ultra successful despite challenges, Alan made it his mission as a Decision Scientist to study them and discover what those at the top of their field have in common. What was the ’X’ factor that set them apart? His research showed that the key factor was an ability to make better, faster decisions.
Over the last 20 years Alan and his research lab developed a new method for making better, faster decisions and field-tested it with individuals and organisations around the globe.
The five-step system known as the “ProConCloud method” capitalizes on the latest insights from Dr. Barnard’s research on why good people make and often repeat bad decisions and the disruptive questions that can help some discover and overcome the limiting beliefs behind their bad decisions.
