TRIZ (/ˈtriːz/; Russian: теория решения изобретательских задач, teoriya resheniya izobretatelskikh zadatch) is "a problem-solving, analysis and forecasting tool derived from the study of patterns of invention in the global patent literature".[1] It was developed by the Soviet inventor and science fiction author Genrich Altshuller and his colleagues, beginning in 1946. In English the name is typically rendered as "the theory of inventive problem solving",[2][3] and occasionally goes by the English acronym TIPS. Following Altshuller's insight, the theory developed on a foundation of extensive research covering hundreds of thousands of inventions across many different fields to produce a theory which defines generalisable patterns in the nature of inventive solutions and the distinguishing characteristics of the problems that these inventions have overcome. There are three primary findings of this research. §History[edit] §Basic principles of TRIZ[edit] §Essentials[edit] §Basic terms[edit] Related:  Divergent Thinking/Learning Diversity

Unified Structured Inventive Thinking Unified Structured Inventive Thinking (USIT) is a structured, problem-solving methodology for finding innovative solution concepts to engineering-design type problems. Historically, USIT is related to Systematic Inventive Thinking (SIT), which originated in Israel and is related to TRIZ, the Russian methodology. It differs from TRIZ in several ways, but most importantly it is a simpler methodology, which makes it quicker to learn and easier to apply. It requires no databases or computer software. The goal of USIT is to enable a problem solver to invent multiple solution concepts in as short a time as possible for real-world problems (day-to-day technical problems in all fields). Introduction[edit] Problem solving is most commonly used in professions such as, engineers, scientists, mathematicians, all of whom have academic degrees, and inventors who bear patents as proof to their talent. History[edit] Since 2000, USIT has been taught outside of the company to non-Ford interests.

Creativity Hack: Use TRIZ to Solve Problems and Generate Ideas TRIZ — the Russian acronym for Theory of Inventive Problem Solving — is a toolbox of techniques for solving problems and generating ideas. It was created in the 1950s by a Soviet naval patent clerk named Genrich Altschuller. Altschuller believed that it was possible for people to learn to become inventors. He studied hundreds of thousands of patents and found that there are only about 1,500 basic problems to be solved. In addition, all of these problems can be solved by applying one or more of 40 universal principles. Although TRIZ was originally developed in order to help engineers to solve technical problems and create new products, it can be applied to many different areas, such as education, the law, public policy, your small business, and so on. How can I increase my income? When most people have a problem that they need to solve, they use a random approach in order to generate a solution.

The original proposal of the WWW, HTMLized A hand conversion to HTML of the original MacWord (or Word for Mac?) document written in March 1989 and later redistributed unchanged apart from the date added in May 1990. Provided for historical interest only. The diagrams are a bit dotty, but available in versioins linked below. This document was an attempt to persuade CERN management that a global hypertext system was in CERN's interests. Other versions which are available are: ©Tim Berners-Lee 1989, 1990, 1996, 1998. This proposal concerns the management of general information about accelerators and experiments at CERN. Overview Many of the discussions of the future at CERN and the LHC era end with the question - ªYes, but how will we ever keep track of such a large project? It then summarises my short experience with non-linear text systems known as ªhypertextº, describes what CERN needs from such a system, and what industry may provide. Losing Information at CERN CERN is a wonderful organisation. Where is this module used? Fig 1.

Creative Problem Solving Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le Creative Problem Solving est une méthode créative de résolution de problème élaborée par Alex Osborn et Sid Parnes. Elle allie à la fois un processus structuré, des techniques, et des rôles attribués aux différents intervenants dans ce processus. Creative Problem Solving (résolution de problèmes par la créativité)[modifier | modifier le code] En 1942, le publicitaire Alex Osborn décrit dans son livre How To Think Up, puis dans Applied Imagination en 1953, le brainstorming (« l’attaque d’un problème dans un style commando ») qui est à l’origine du Creative Problem Solving. Le modèle a évolué : il est parfois décrit en 6 étapes (Creative Education Foudation[1]), parfois en 8 étapes[2], parfois plus, mais le processus reste le même, les grandes étapes restant identiques, seules les sous-étapes et leur positionnement dans le processus variant parfois.

Tony Buzan Anthony Peter "Tony" Buzan (; 2 June 1942 – 13 April 2019)[1] was an English author and educational consultant. Buzan popularised the idea of mental literacy, radiant thinking, and a technique called mind mapping,[2] inspired by techniques used by Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, and Joseph D. Novak's "concept mapping" techniques.[3] Early life[edit] Buzan was born in Palmers Green, Enfield, Middlesex, and was an alumnus of Kitsilano Secondary School in Vancouver. Career[edit] He was a promoter of mnemonic systems and mind mapping techniques. Following his 1970s series Use Your Head for the BBC,[10] many of his ideas were set down in a series of five books: Use Your Memory,[11] Master Your Memory, Use Your Head, The Speed Reading Book and The Mind Map Book. As a popular psychology author, Tony Buzan wrote on subjects relating to the brain, "genius quotient (GQ)", spiritual intelligence, memory, creativity and speed reading.

The Semantic Web is the Cake…but the Technologies are not the La April 22nd, 2009 by Tom Heath My last post about the relationship between Linked Data, the Semantic Web and the Semantic Web technology stack seemed to create more debate and disagreement than clarity. Not to be discouraged by this, I’ve been giving some more thought to analogies that may help to illuminate the the relationship between different concepts in the Semantic Web space. The layer cake diagram is probably one of the most used and abused images associated with the Semantic Web vision. In my view, the technologies aren’t layers in the finished cake, they’re the raw ingredients that must be mixed and baked to make the cake that is the Semantic Web itself. Once we’ve baked our cake, by putting our RDF data online according to the Linked Data principles, we’ll probably want to decorate it. (I see that Jim Hendler’s keynote at ESWC2009 will talk about the layer cake; I’m intrigued to see how he choses to serve up the analogy).

Mind Map: The best apps for mind mapping — The Sweet Setup There are several attractive options for Apple users looking for a mind mapping app to help capture, develop, and organize their ideas, but we think that MindNode is the best because it has a beautiful design that helps get your ideas flowing, is easy to use, has rock-solid sync, and has enough import/export options to be a really useful tool in almost any productivity workflow. What is a Mind Map, Anyway? A mind map is a diagram that connects information around a central topic or subject. The basic idea is that you start with a central idea and build branches (or “nodes”) around it. Think of it as the right-brained version of a standard outline that is perfect for “radiant thinking,” an idea popularized by Tony Buzan. We really like this definition of a mind map by David Sparks (aka MacSparky) from a Mac Power Users episode on Cooking Ideas: (A mind map is) visually looking at ideas and their connections and relationships with each other.

Geohash for spatial index and search The Crucial Thinking Skill Nobody Ever Taught You – The Mission How Great Thinkers Shatter the Status Quo The German mathematician Carl Jacobi made a number of important contributions to different scientific fields during his career. In particular, he was known for his ability to solve hard problems by following a strategy of man muss immer umkehren or, loosely translated, “invert, always invert.” Jacobi believed that one of the best ways to clarify your thinking was to restate math problems in inverse form. Inversion is a powerful thinking tool because it puts a spotlight on errors and roadblocks that are not obvious at first glance. Great thinkers, icons, and innovators think forward and backward. Great thinkers, icons, and innovators think forward and backward. Art provides a good example. Nirvana turned the conventions of mainstream rock and pop music completely upside down. Inversion is often at the core of great art. Great art breaks the previous rules. This strategy works equally well for other creative pursuits like writing. Project Management
