TRIZ Introduction


The 1-day TRIZ introduction course offers an overview of the systematic innovation method. During the course, you will understand how the act of inventing is formed and how software tools (PICC) can help you.


TRIZ Basic


During this course, participants learn the fundamentals of the systematic innovation method based on TRIZ. Practical cases will allow you to practice the concepts and tools presented. In addition, different examples, coming from different industries, Aeronautics, Pharmaceutical, Food, automotive, etc. will illustrate the concepts.


TRIZ M-Tech


This is an advanced training course based on the TRIZ methodology.

You will learn how to collect and capitalize on existing knowledge in the company, from your customers and from your competitors, how to objectively target the real problems to be solved, and how to generate hypotheses for evolution (technology forecasting).
You will also be introduced to various idea generation and problem solving tools such as PICC.


The growing importance of innovation

The growing importance of innovation

Today, most, if not all companies have to innovate to maintain or gain a stronger market position. However, teams that solely rely on their own creativity to innovate are not always easy to manage, and this, especially in an operation environment with urgent market constraints.

The Blind Trial and Error Method, PICC and Problem Solving

The Blind Trial and Error Method, PICC and Problem Solving

The method used by most inventors since the 19th century can be characterized as the blind trial and error method: possible solutions were chosen randomly.

No rules of idea generating were used and, in principle, any idea could be accepted. No criteria were applied either, which forced the inventor into multiple experiments in order to evaluate each possibility.

The inventive process was a quid pro quo, reciprocal exchange, where ignorance was being exchanged for time (“the less we know, the longer we search”).

PICC

Private Innovation
Competence Center (PICC)

To stimulate innovation, collaboration and the sharing of ideas.

Collaborative platform with multiple possibilities

PICC is a software that promotes an integrated approach to identifying, capturing, evaluating, retrieving, and sharing all of an enterprise’s information assets. These assets may include databases, documents, policies, procedures, and previously un-captured expertise and experience in individual workers.”

In addition, PICC is able to:

  1. Use knowledge contained in patents and scientific literature
  2. Use knowledge resulting from internal and external projects

The goal is to get the right knowledge to the right person/team at the right time in order to Accelerate and systematize innovation process

What you get

  • Systematically share and capitalize on existing
    knowledge, and create new knowledge.
  • Identify good candidates and invest in them for the long term.
  • Increase the generation of innovations and measure the performance of your innovation process.
  • Develop new skills internally for managing innovation projects.
  • Fuel a robust IP strategy.

Knowledge Management

What is Knowledge Management ?

The term Knowledge Management refers to the processes of creating, sharing and using knowledge, know-how and information within an organization in order to make good decisions. It integrates with continuous improvement and process optimization efforts by facilitating complex problem solving and innovation through tools such as TRIZ and PICC, thus providing a competitive advantage to the company.

DIFFERENT KINDS OF KNOWLEDGE


Knowledge management can be linked to several levels of knowledge, all crucial to the proper functioning of the company:

  • Data are words, numbers, graphs or images that have no meaning in their present form and must be treated and contextualized in order to acquire them.
  • Information is made up of processed and contextualized data.
  • Knowledge refers to information and skills acquired through experience or training.
  • Intelligence is the ability to understand the interdependence of facts. That is what we learn from what we do.
  • Wisdom is the ability to judge the veracity and generability of knowledge and apply it to the company’s project.

To better meet the needs of companies, Exelop has developed the Torch Light Model, which allows knowledge management tools to be classified in relation to the level of knowledge on which they operate. This model gives companies a clear picture of their strengths and weaknesses in knowledge management.

Intelligence as a flashlight

Intelligence as a flashlight

Intelligence is like a flashlight. If you flash it, it’ll just show you what’s in front. Knowledge is like a projector; if you switch it on, it projects its own story. Now, if you came with a flashlight and you flash it on these paintings here, you will see the paintings just the way they are. If you came with the projector, which also has light in it, and you turned it on; you don’t see the paintings. You will see something else, maybe Jackie Chan fighting.

That’s the difference between knowledge and intelligence.

Knowledge is limited, it can’t see beyond its limited perspective, it assumes finality in all things, often arrogance, closes the mind to the receiver, shuts off aliveness of the present moment. It filters all things to what it can understand, from what it can grab, from the past, it compares and relate all things to a time that no longer exist, to memories that are finite. On the other hand, intelligence is always rooted into now, the moment that is, always open to new possibilities. Intelligence is of the maker not of the made. It is alive, present, reflects the natural world not one that is in your mind, looking with a fresh perspective, able to learn and readjust. Knowledge is stoic, stiff, always rooted in a time that is no longer, always occurring right in front of it.

Let flashlights be what we are, the light of the world. Allow your mind to be renewed.”

Jaggi Vasudev — Indian spiritual leader and yogi

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

This quote emphasizes the difference between knowledge and intelligence, two concepts that are hard to disentangle. It praises intelligences capacity to detach itself from preconceived notions that the author imputes to knowledge. Obviously, the ability to project prior knowledge on a given problem can be useful to help contextualize the new data being acquired. However the capability to collect and process data without bias from our knowledge is more important than ever, in a world where the abundance of information makes us cling to past knowledge in order to avoid change. In business, this is done by implementing robust Knowledge Management strategies.

With this in mind, the flashlight of intelligence should bring us to opportunities rather than project knowledge.
