My Posts in May 2009:
- Excursion: horses, zebras and a blanket cover is indead an excursion into the world of Deep Learning with some examples that show how to transform images from horses to zebras and vice versa.
- What is "TOC - Theory of Constraints"? is an introduction to the holistic management philosophy of Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt.
- What is "Systems Thinking" in general? is an introduction to systems thinking. There are many similarities between general systems thinking and the TOC-Theory of Constraints. Personally I prefer the application of the logical TOC Thinking Processes to get deeper insights.
- What is "Systemic Thinking"? is the last post in this row. It is for me a mix of different approaches with the objective to get a better understanding of the world. TOC and Systems Thinking are fundamental elements of the systemic concept.
