Innovation is not just for the talented few: (TRIZ, SIT) Readers dtroness and baumann debunked the idea that innovation is a light bulb that goes off in the heads of a chosen few. There are systematic processes by which ordinary individuals can come up with innovative solutions. TRIZ, a Soviet-era methodology also known as the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving and Tel-Aviv based Systematic Inventive Thinking (SIT), were two of the processes they mentioned.
These methods “should become part of any big company in the U.S., because it turns their own employees quickly into inventors just by shortening the leap of invention with some handy thinking tools,” wrote baumann.
