Future Reality Tree - FRT - definition(s)

Future Reality Tree - FRT - (part of the Theory of Constraints Thinking Process) FRT is an effect-cause-effect sequence designed to show how a proposed changes would affect reality; specifically how and why we expect the proposal to produce a desired outcome. It is a paper-based logical simulation to test a proposed change for its ability to produce desired effects, as well as to test a change's tendency to produce new, undesirable effects. These undesirable effects, out on the limbs of negative branches of the tree, may then be explored to determine what additional changes/preparations may be necessary to avoid them.
