HARMONY CHANGE MAKER is a Strategy & Tactic Expert System, developed by Goldratt Research Labs, which can be used by experts and novices alike to capitalize on a breakthrough by Dr. Eli Goldratt in the design, validation, communication, planning, execution, and auditing of Organizational or Individual Growth and Improvement Strategies and Tactics.
HARMONY CHANGE MAKER enables managers and other stakeholders at all levels to contribute to the development and validation of a comprehensive Strategy & Tactic (S&T) Tree for their organization as well as to facilitate the planning of the implementation of the S&T, monitoring of its execution, and ability to analyze and resolve planning and execution decisions that block further improvement to create new Planning and Execution better practice rules.
Both experts and novices can use the HARMONY CHANGE MAKER APP. It can help you capitalize on a breakthrough by Dr. Eli Goldratt in all stages of Organizational or Individual Growth, Improvement Strategies, and tactics: design, validation, communication, planning, execution, and auditing.
The HARMONY CHANGE MAKER APP enables managers and other stakeholders at all levels to contribute to the development and validation of a comprehensive Strategy & Tactic (S&T) Tree for their organization. It also aids in planning the implementation of the S&T, monitoring its execution, analyzing and resolving problems that block further improvement while creating new Planning and Execution Best practice rules.
Harmony Change Maker is available in both a Desktop version for Windows-based computers or a Web App version that can be run on any device with an internet browser such as PCs, Macs, Tablets, Smart Phones, etc.
There are three versions available in both Desktop and Web App:
- Harmony S&T Viewer (Free) can be used to view generic S&Ts from the included S&T library or any S&Ts developed with Harmony Desktop or Web App.
- Harmony S&T Change Designer can be used to design, validate and communicate S&Ts either from scratch or from customizing generic S&Ts. These are available from the Goldratt S&T library (consisting of S&Ts developed and approved for release by Dr. Eli Goldratt) and from the Community S&T Library (containing S&Ts developed and shared by a growing Harmony user base).
- Harmony S&T Change Maker can be used to plan the implementation of a S&T as well as to update implementation status and monitor the execution status of a S&T. The Harmony Web App Change Maker version also contains functionality to analyze and resolve planning and execution decisions and to convert these into “Better practices” that can be added to a library and used to build/customize a S&T.
There are still two versions available for use on your iPad/iPhone: The free Harmony Viewer (that you can use to view generic S&Ts) and a paid version (of Harmony Viewer (to view any S&T created on Harmony Desktop) at a cost of $19.95. These are available to download from the App Store.
Yes. The new Harmony Web App functionality allows users to keep using the app even if not connected to the internet. You simply log in to www.harmonytoc.com while you have an internet connection, then select “Go Offline” and select the S&Ts you want to work on while offline. Once completed and you again have access to the internet, simply select “Go Online” (icon in the top middle) and Harmony will synchronize and update all the S&Ts edited with the version in the cloud.
This error is a Windows exception error that is caused when software like HARMONY is trying to access the Windows Registry to read or update a Registration code without the necessary admin rights being granted to this software by Windows. The fix is quite simple in most cases.
Just right-click on the HARMONY Desktop icon and select “Run as Administrator” or if this option is not visible, using Right Click, select “Properties”, then select “Compatibility” and finally then select the “Run as Administrator” option.
If this does not work, it might require you to uninstall Harmony, login as Administrator on your computer, re-install it selecting “Everyone” can access the software…. but most of the time the quick fix works…
You can share any S&T created with other HARMONY users, either by specifying the emails of those you want to share the S&T with or by submitting the S&T to the Community S&T library granting either “View Only” or “Change” rights to all HARMONY users. When you share an S&T with the Harmony Web App to other users, they will receive an email and provide them the option to subscribe to the free Harmony Web App Viewer (if they only need to view the S&T) or to subscribe to the paid Harmony Change Designer or Change Maker versions.
You can get more information on S&Ts and the Theory of Constraints, including new research papers from www.goldrattresearchlabs.com. A great reference book on all the latest developments and applications of the Theory of Constraints is the “Theory of Constraints Handbook” which can be purchased from Amazon as either a physical book or e-book.
