Someone somewhere has already solved your problem or a very similar problem, and all we need to do is apply the same principle to the current problem and solve it similarly…
TRIZ is Theory of the Resolution of Invention-related Tasks. It is a a problem-solving, analysis and forecasting tool/ framework derived from the study of patterns of invention in the global patent literature that was developed in USSR and “immigrated” to the West after “perestrojka” period in 1990s. It is a well-structured inventive problem-solving approach which replaces the unsystematic trial-and-error method used in the search for solutions. This helps in overcoming psychological inertia and “stuckness” which can impede reaching the best possible design.
As leaders, we are often facilitating discussions as a part of designing new products, architectures, system design or problem solving.
In this lecture you will learn about what TRIZ is and how to apply its fundamental principles in Software Engineering and Architecture world.
