home Three Principles Behind All Tools || Take me back to the main ToolKit page || || Take me back to the DirectedCreativity Home page || There are many tools for creative thinking in the literature... Edward de Bono presents 13 tools in his book Serious Creativity Grace McGartland has 25 tips and techniques in Thunderbolt Thinking(TM) Arthur VanGundy covers 29 tools in Idea Power Michael Michalko describes 34 techniques in Thinkertoys Roger von Oech has 64 methods in his Creative Whack Pack Koberg and Bagnall give guidance on 67 tools in The Universal Traveler James Higgins tops them all with his book 101 Creative Problem Solving Techniques. While there is overlap among these compilations, there are at least 250 unique tools in these seven books. And these are only a few of the references available on the topic of creative thinking! Unfortunately, this variety leaves the impression that no one really knows how to stimulate creativity. Attention Escape Movement The Value of Understanding the Three Principles Summary References

Tools - Cambridge (Login) CAM is a software platform with functionality that is organised into toolboxes. Each toolbox provides features for modelling and analysing the dependencies in certain types of system. For instance, some toolboxes were created to model products, others to model processes.

Welcome to Ideation TRIZ Creativity techniques and creative tools for problem solving This A to Z of Creativity and Innovation Techniques, provides an introduction to a range of tools and techniques for both idea generation (Creativity) and converting those ideas into reality (Innovation). Like most tools these techniques all have their good and bad points. I like to think of these creativity and innovation techniques as tools in a toolbox in much the same way as my toolbox at home for DIY. It has a saw, spanner, hammer, knife and all sorts of other things in it, they are all very useful, but you have to pick the right tool (creativity / Innovation technique) for each job. For the future, the aim is to also have sub-categories which will identify Techniques for; Problem Definition - including problem analysis, redifinition, and all aspects associated with defining the problem clearly. Special thanks to the Open University for their kind permission to use material from their publication B822. Subcategories This category has the following 5 subcategories, out of 5 total.
What Are You Trying to Make Happen? of Roy H. Williams, the Wizard of Ads What Are You Trying to Make Happen?And How Will You Measure Progress? Violent crime in America declined each year from 1993 to 2004. CONCLUSION: iPods cause violent crime. Bad advertising strategies stem from just such logic: “Since one event precedes another, the first event must be the cause of the second.” Most business owners look around, observe their circumstances and then try to make sense of it all. Don’t tell me what you see. I usually ignore that question and ask, “How am I supposed to help you make something happen when you can’t tell me what it is?” Sigh. “When you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” - Cheshire Cat, Alice in Wonderland How many of your actions are actually reactions triggered by circumstances? Do you know what you’re trying to make happen? You can’t navigate a ship by studying the wind and waves. No stack of dollars can be your lighthouse. Where do you want to be tomorrow? Good. Roy H.
Schwagerman-Ulmer-A3-Lean-Le.pdf Petit survol de TRIZ TRIZ est un acronyme russe pour « Théorie de la Résolution des Problèmes d’Innovation ». C’est une méthode inventée par Genrich AltshuIler, il y a plus de 50 ans. Sous sa direction, une équipe de chercheurs a analysé des millions de brevets pour découvrir ce qui pouvait être modélisé. TRIZ s’appuie sur deux postulats : le caractère inventif de solutions innovantes peut être exprimé au travers d’un nombre limité de principes physiques, chimiques, géométriques, et les systèmes techniques évoluent selon des lois et sont donc prédictibles. L’idée fondamentale que TRIZ a apportée peut être définie par cette proposition : « Tous les systèmes évoluent vers un état idéal appelé idéalité, en résolvant des contradictions et utilisant le moins de ressources disponibles ». L’idéalité signifie « faire plus avec moins ». Chaque problème recèle une ou plusieurs « contradictions ». Chaque invention est le résultat de la résolution d’une ou plusieurs contradictions. Les fondements de TRIZ 1. Exemple
SIT - Systematic Inventive Thinking: Our Activities in the Netherlands Creating Passionate Users My Favorite Graphs... and the future This blog has always been about optimism, creating better user experiences, helping users spend more time in flow, and learning. There are 405 posts here. More importantly, there are nearly 10,000 comments from y'all that add so much more to the topics, and from which myself and others have learned a great deal. So, I've moved my original "threats" post--something many people find very difficult to look at-- to a different web page -- rather than keeping it as a post here. But I want the thing people see when they come here now to reflect what this blog has always been about, so I'm including a few of my favorite pictures from the last two years here. As for the future of this blog, I know I cannot just return to business as usual -- whatever absurd reasons have led to this much hatred for me (and for what I write here) will continue, so there is no reason to think the same things wouldn't happen again... and probably soon. Please help. Dr.
