Design has emerged as a key differentiator for businesses. Creativity is defined as the production of new ideas that are fit for a particular business purpose. Design is what links creativity and innovation. When design ideologies are applied to strategy and innovation the success rate of innovation theatrically shows improvement. It shapes ideas to become pragmatic and attractive propositions for users or customers.
Big data uses inductive statistics and concepts from nonlinear system identification to infer laws (regressions, nonlinear relationships, and causal effects) from large sets of data with low information density to reveal relationships, dependencies and perform predictions of outcomes and behaviors

TRIZ (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving)
TRIZ was developed based on the hypothesis that there are universal principles of innovation that are the basis for most inventions. TRIZ is a combination of methods, tools, and a way of thinking.It was developed to be applied to engineering problems involving physical things. The ultimate goal of TRIZ is to achieve absolute excellence in design and innovation. In order to achieve absolute excellence, TRIZ has five key philosophical elements.
The TRIZ technique is based on the observation that technical systems tend to evolve to increasingly ideal states by overcoming contradictions in ways that minimize the introduction of new resources. Humans have been solving problems in this way for long enough that we have faced and solved problems of virtually every type; therefore most innovations are simply transpositions of known solutions from other problems that have already been solved, not necessarily in the same field.
TRIZ is based on the detailed analysis of millions of patents and the belief that an old solution can be used to solve a new problem if we look at the problem and solution as fundamental elements.
Coupling TRIZ with Six Sigma produces powerful results faster, because the breakthrough problem-solving aspects of TRIZ can be focused on the profit opportunities identified by Six Sigma and the technology-forecasting aspects of TRIZ can be focused on planning new products at the right time in the product life cycle.
The tools of TRIZ that are used in the improvement arena of Six Sigma as well as the relationship to the PDCA model. The difference in emphasis between Six Sigma and conventional quality improvement methods is the focus at all levels of Six Sigma application on the business results of the proposed improvement.
Should You Use a Consultant to Help Introduce TRIZ to Your Organization?
- If you select a TRIZ training expert, it saves more time than it would take for your staff to learn TRIZ and develop training materials and methods.
- Improves confidence of the pilot project participants because the consultant can show successful results from other organizations.
- Produces more sophisticated results based on the consultant’s experience. The beginners become advanced practitioners of TRIZ much more quickly than if they learn only from their own study and projects.
