The book begins with an overview of the constraint-based perspective on systems and organizations, commonly referred to as the theory of constraints or synchronous management. The first section will guide you through the fundamental principles and processes that are the backbone of the thinking process application tools.The second section contains the step-by-step guidelines for each of the five thinking process application tools. These tools utilize sufficient cause thinking and necessary condition thinking. Third section introduces two ways that two or more of the thinking process application tools are combined, providing robust processes for the understanding and communicating problems and solutions.This book can be used as a field guide to learning the five thinking process application tools as needed, based on their own particular issues. You will have a full understanding of the theory and practical application of these powerful processes, including when and when not to use each tool. The total benefit is not just to apply the thinking process, but to develop intuition and have the ability to combine logic and intuition in the same thinking process.

I have found this book and Thomas McMullen's book on the Theory of Constraints Management System to the be the best written of the latest crop of books to come out on this subject. Bill Dettmer's books provide much more detail, but Scheinkopf's stands out for its easy to follow examples and straightforward methodology.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in making more rapid progress toward their business or personal goals.
Just a quick note of thanks -- and congratulations -- for the great work that is "Thinking for a Change". (By the way, great title too!).
I am a recent Jonah, having completed the program in October at the Insititute. Your book takes a very different approach to teaching the TP and helped clear up alot of things.
Also, thanks for showing the way of a true helping Jonah by being so active on the net. You really live your beliefs and it is wonderful.
We too often take great effort and contributions for granted. I want you to know that yours is not (being taken for granted).
Sincerely, John Gaulin
With the release of "Thinking for a Change", Lisa has provided the "Thinking Processes" tools in a very accessible format. The everyday examples show us the power and the wide validity of these breakthrough problem solving tools. For veteran "Jonahs", the book provides tips on coaching others in the "Thinking Processes", and insight into the development of the tools that I've not found anywhere else.
For those with no introduction to the Theory of Constraints (TOC's) "Thinking Processes", they represent a paradigm shift in problem solving. A root cause analysis can be developed using the effect-cause-effect logic adopted from the scientific method. The old paradigm was if you don't understand something, collect more data. The new paradigm is that to understand something, you form effect-cause-effect logic and test it. The rules used to test the validity of the logic are presented in Lisa's book with everyday, yet compelling examples.
The validity of these "Thinking Processes" have been proven in application to organizational science, management science, as well as in the technical fields. The proof can be seen in the Profit and Loss statements of those companies who have adopted TOC as a overall management philosophy.
If you have found the writing of Senge, Wheatley, Covey, Gleich, and/or Pragiogini compelling, don't stop exploring until you have given TOC's "Thinking Processes", as outlined in Lisa's book a chance.

Ms. Scheinkopf also provides very nice step-by-step guidelines for using each of the tools. While no one will ever become a Jonah by reading a book, this one sets the reader up for success by explaining the basics and providing examples that show how using TOC is a natural process and can be used in daily tasks and relationships.
This is the best contribution to disseminating the practical use of these tools to date. Who else (beside Dr. Goldratt) could create such a peice of work on this subject. Lisa is probably the second most experienced in the use of these tools and apparently one heck of an author!
