Shared Practice: Card Deck Activity
Perhaps you have a sibling who remembers shared childhood experiences very differently from how you recall them. It can seem surprising that two people who grew up in the same family could have such different perspectives. Or, consider another setting—that of a traffic accident. When police officers arrive and take information from witnesses, the multiple accounts can be quite different. One witness may claim that the vehicle ran through a red stoplight, whereas another witness feels certain that the light was still green. These situations, in which people perceive the same event very differently, happen frequently. Every person has a unique view of the environment, and people make sense of the world in different ways.
This happens in business settings as well. These different perspectives can result from various factors, such as having diverse roles in a company, or having different backgrounds or training. Think about how you have reacted in situations when this has occurred and whether it has made you question your own perspective.
As you review Senge’s chapter on “Mental Models” and the class notes “A Brief Note on the Theory of Constraints” (located in this week’s resources), think about constraints that you may experience in your daily life.
