The ‘we’ in the question refers to the Indian IT industry.
I know there are people out there who would find this question offensive; but frankly that’s not the intention.
We had someone coming over to present a Capability Maturity model for innovation at our office. It had a staged representation, similar to CMM, which organizations could adopt to become more innovative. True, lot of effort was put in to that.
I was introduced to TRIZ 4 years back, when I attended Darrell Mann’s course at IIT Mumbai. It was a great feeling at the conclusion of a two day course and I had a great satisfaction to have been introduced to something different which seems to have disrupted my learning curve. I was fortunate that I have been asked to further develop on it by my seniors at Mahindra and I started voraciously mining the literature on the subject.
Many times we come across unique artefacts, incidences, appreciate innovativeness of it at that very moment, but loose it like sea sand afterwards, not capturing its essence. Such incidences many times serve as “Innovation Boosters”, but they lay hidden deep in our pattern oriented brain and require external stimulus to bring it to the surface again. TRIZ provides a good external stimulus by way of analogy to excavate this hidden treasure.
Hi everyone. We are a group of lecturers learning about TRIZ, we have stuck in a concept names “Problem Redefinition” from CREAX software. The reason to write in thie blog is to know if anyone knows about a paper or reference which might help us to clarify this concept?
Thanks in advanced
Yesterday there was this announcement from TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) that it may go on to make per second billing mandatory across all operators.
Currently this feature is a market differentiator, that only TATA DOCOMO offers such a billing of call on a per second basis.
Why do we need to watch this trend, because if all operators adopt this there will be a revenue reduction of 10% in the sector.
Those who own a pet, especially a dog will appreciate with what I am saying. It’s a demanding job to take your pet out for his routine every morning. He may be feeling relieved watering few electric poles but his “street” smart buddies do not take pleasure in his act & consider it an offense committed in their own terrain. They envy cozy life your pet enjoys and therefore start barking endlessly at him and indirectly at you; after all, you are the reason for his comfort.
Event details. The timing is perfect for participation from TRIZIndia–this is a live internet “radio” broadcast on TRIZ and Six Sigma (or any improvement method.) You can participate now, or listen/download later–which is better learning AND more fun? Thanks in advance!
I just got this announcement from Larry Ball about the latest from his consortium of authors:
_Just wanted to let you know that another book is available on http://www.opensourcetriz.comThe name of the book is “Job 4—Simplifying”. It regards tools for simplifying or overhauling a system. The download is also free. A for-pay trade paperback will be available in a couple of weeks._
My advice is that if you don’t have “Job 5–Problem Solving” you should get both.
Chemistry can be boring, if one’s chemistry with it is poor. The option then is to
accept without understanding what is written, memorize & score marks to have
better career prospects. . After all atomic theory was not invented by us.
We merely accepted it.
I was teaching my daughter a lesson in Chemistry and the topic was “Chemical
BONDS”. Since I left school, the only BOND I thought I knew was James Bond; I
Traveling 4 ½ hrs sitting on the last seat of a 25 seater bus, cramped & clamped is a nightmare. Some of you may empathize with me. My Mumbai- Nasik Return journey perfectly fits this case. In order to dampen this torture, smart transporters, like the one we have here, provide video facility & play latest hits. In TRIZ terms this is called innovation by transition to a super system (Video, films, latest hits etc).
