TRIZ (Theory of inventive problem solving)

  • tool

TRIZ is a systematic approach for understanding and defining challenging problems. It is based on the understanding that the vast majority of problems can be reduced to a trade-off between two contradictory elements. The central purpose of TRIZ-based analysis is to systematically apply strategies and tools to find solutions that overcome the need for a trade-off between the two elements.

Although the method is old, hard to master and somewhat complicated, the philosophy of solving contradictions is extremely useful when solving process-related problems.
