A conflict resolution tool used in the theory of constraints to identify assumptions related to a problem, create actions to solve or invalidate the assumptions and as a result resolve, or evaporate, the problem.
A term used to describe a methodology developed by goldratt (theory of constraints) to resolve conflicts in a "win-win" manner. Name relates to the idea that conflicts, like clouds, are often indistinct i.e., People are unable to articulate the real reasons for the conflict.
A logic-based tool used to surface and identify assumptions related to a conflict or problem.
In the theory of constraints, a logic-based tool for surfacing assumptions related to a conflict or problem. Once the assumptions are surfaced, actions to break an assumption and hence solve (evaporate) the problem can be determined.
The Evaporating Cloud is one of the five Thinking processes in the theory of constraints initially developed by Eliyahu M. Goldratt to enable the focused improvement of any system (especially business system).
