Time for another episode of Next Future Today!

Find more episodes at NextFutureToday.com, on YouTube, or in your favorite podcast app.

This is Season 1, Episode 6, and the topic is “Here Be Dragons.” My guest is Rich Mulholland, who is a professional speaker, a salesperson, an author, has a pro music/entertainment background supporting a variety of internationally known rock bands, he’s a sales and speaking trainer, and perhaps most importantly, one heck of a storyteller.

Rich’s approach to explaining not just that storytelling is important, but HOW TO CREATE WELL CRAFTED STORIES, is among the best I’ve found.

I know I’ve found gold when I read a book and follow someone’s social feed, when most of the resources they mention are not the same old list that every one refers to.

And his latest book, “Here Be Dragons” is an incredibly compelling read, chock full of memorable nuggets.

And my company, and the product we discussed early in the conversation is:

Thanks to Rich for his humor, insights and support – he’s serving a very similar audience in the same spirit as we are – there’s power in simplicity, and in making compelling presentations a normality rather than a rarity.

Innovation Podcast Theory of Constraints

Constraints are made to be Broken with Lisa Scheinkopf and Dan Keldsen

Audio:

Video:

Time for another episode of Next Future Today!

Today’s topic is all about Constraints.

Well, maybe not ALL about constraints, but that’s the main target.

Specifically, we’ll be talking about the Theory of Constraints, or ToC as it’s called. And my guest is Lisa Scheinkopf, Founder of Jenrada.

Lisa founded Jenrada in 2019 after 14 years as a Partner at Goldratt Consulting where she led the company’s consulting practice in North America and India and headed the Goldratt School. 

If you went to a business school, or perhaps have had a manufacturing job, you may have run across one of the first big best-selling “Business Novels” – The Goal, which is a wonderfully easy to understand romp through Theory of Constraints.

Or more recently, with a decidedly enterprise development twist into DevOps, “The Phoenix Project” – which is a similarly awesome book that extends ToC out of physical manufacturing, into bits and bytes.

For this episode, if you are interested in smarter change management, a way to look at processes and opportunities by hunting down constraints and, often, eradicating constraints that may have been blocking you or your organization for years, maybe even decades, then we have a treat for you.

Let’s dive on into it!
