How do you solve problems?

One of my many roles at the moment is as a part time trainer for Oxford Creativity. One of their greatest attributes (apart from TRIZ, Karen, Lilly and Caroline). Their fourth greatest attribute is the use of cartoons to illuminate complex ideas and occasionally just very funny double entendres. Here is their latest cartoon and the current offerings of TRIZ courses which I highly recommend (and even pop-up as a facilitator on days four and five of the five day courses).
Are you seeking a reliable problem solving method that provides relevant and practical answers every time like the man in the cartoon? The TRIZ toolkit enables your engineering teams to understand and solve their most difficult problems quickly and effectively.
When experienced and successful engineers learn TRIZ, they make better use of their experience, knowledge and skills both individually and in teams, delivering:
  • Fast understanding, definition and communication of important problems
  • Creative, cost effective and practical solutions
  • Auditable innovation
