Q1: Why should I enroll for this program?
Creativity and Innovation Practitioner course offers problem-solving approaches that emphasize heavily on finding root causes but do not generally have sound analytical techniques to find solutions. Creativity methods for idea generation fill this gap. Creating disruptive product and/or service ideas which can provide a competitive edge to the organization is an agenda in most organizations.
Q2: What is theory of inventive problem solving (popularly known as TRIZ)?
TRIZ (Teoriya Resheniya Izobretatelskikh Zadatch) or TIPS (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) is a methodology for inventive problem solving. It was developed by a Russian scientist – Genrich S. Altshuller. He and his team analyzed thousands of innovations across different sectors and generalized the inventive patterns to come up with a set of universal principles. These principles makes creative problem solutioning faster and predictable.
Q3: Will this course help me hone my creative thinking skills?
Yes. Creative thinking skills are definitely not just for ‘creative types’ like artists and musicians. It is an indispensable skill for everyone involved in business problem solving.
Q4: Which TRIZ tools are covered in the course?
Contradictions, Separation Principles and 40 TRIZ principles.
Q5: What advantage does TRIZ offer over other Creative and Innovative methods like Lateral Thinking, Neuro-Lingual-Programming, Mind-mapping, etc.?
One of the important distinctions of TRIZ is the efficiency of overcoming psychological inertia. Psychological inertia is being stuck in a particular way of thinking. It hinders personal creativity and problem-solving ability because of “the way that I am used to doing it” approach.
Q6: Does the workshop cover practical applications of TRIZ?
Yes. The workshop focuses on practical knowledge that is directly applicable to real-world situations.
Learning innovation in an innovative way! The course was thoroughly explained with aid of examples and the challenges in understanding the principles and parameters were cleared in teamwork.
Thanks, VK for moderating the sessions and introducing the TRIZ concept. Great learning over the last two days and look forward to the next session as part of the MBB program.
