Cascades of Key Conditions

Cascades of Key Conditions

« Back to Glossary Index

Cascades of Key Conditions refers to a powerful method for analyzing primary constraints in complex systems by testing against ideal operating conditions. This method works because changes in interdependent conditions are more likely to have impact than changes in independent ones. So, when a list of ideal operating conditions is sorted from most interdependent to most independent, the first condition is the most impactful, and the last one is the least impactful. This technique has been woven throughout the Growth River OS. Examples include the Three Domains of Change, the Seven Crucial Conversations, the Four Business Capability Types, the Four Metrics for Competitive Advantage, Systems of Teams, and Systems of Strategies. All of these models are based in explicit cascades of key conditions that can be applied through gap analysis with data to identify primary constraints. This links to the Driving Focus crucial conversation. See Primary Constraint Analysis, and Game Changer.
