In reference to the first slide "Complexity in TOC" and the provision of logical tools in TOC, TOC itself would be most suitable for "Complicated" domain challenges. The cause/effect or the logical tree diagram in the slide is not the only logical tool in TOC. For example, the Conflict Resolution Tree attempts to resolve a deep seated conflict by eliminating ambiguity, which is similar to the intention of Cynefin framework. The symbols used by TOC augment the basic cause/effect symbols by adding more clarity and depth i.e. the necessary condition, augmentative condition and reinforcing loop (i.e. an outside governing constraint). The question in the slide is a riddle for Zen meditation.
The second slide "Constraints in Theory of Constraints" and the last (fifth) slide "Consider a production line" should be considered together. The former quotes two dictionary concept, whilst the latter attempts to clarify the former. Constraints in TOC are used as a focusing mechanism for management, improvement and decision making efforts. If combined with the understanding of waste in Lean (TPM) and/or variation in SPC, constraints in TOC are self-regulating mechanisms aimed to prevent self-harm. The two process flows in the last slide do not provide some important pieces of information. For example, the author could have added a pile of work to the top process before the third step, with the capacity of 7, to indicate the constraint and the resulting "harm" to the system. In the bottom process the buffer is meant to represent the protective mechanism. Also, the discussion about the constraints in TOC demonstrates, well, lack of understanding of TOC.
In reference to the third slide "Constraints in Cynefin", my understanding is that the aim of Cynefin framework is to aid decision making, eliminate ambiguity, and enable flow. With that in mind, if we use road driving as a context for discussing Cynefin constraints, we could say that when we are driving on a straight road about decisions should be Obvious, we accept fixed constraints. When we drive through a town in our home country, signs, symbols, infrastructure would have some common feel i.e. governing constraints. Driving in a foreign country could equate to Complex, whilst Chaotic would indicate a clash of culture and technology. Finally, This webinar is a good representation of the cliff between the Chaotic and Obvious domains.
My brother suggested I may like this web site. He used to be entirely right.
