Title Author: TRIZ, Deming and Teilhard de Chardin = Centerpoint-Deltapoint-Omegapoint
Author: Frank Voehl
When: 21 October, 2015 at noon EDST; (UTC-4 hours).
This Webinar will review:
Many attempts to introduce the classical Theory of Inventive Problem Solving – aka TRIZ -- into the organizational marketplace and Universities have suffered from a lack of application results with bottom line impact. When TRIZ methods are used many experts have found that the results are not routinely implemented. Where TRIZ applications have led to implementation, experience has shown that TRIZ is often used to solve problems that are narrowly focused, and are often in search of returns on implementation efforts. Dr. W. Edwards Deming, offers a system of “profound knowledge” revolving around his famous 14 Points as the basis for organizational transformation and operation. The great Jesuit thinker and Paleontologist Teilhard de Chardin foresaw the emergence of ‘noosphere’ at a peak mystical moment referred to as the Omega Point. This moment would be the result of the interactions of increasing activity of human networks creating a highly charged “thinking layer.” It helps TRIZ practitioners gain management acceptance of innovative ideas and solutions, as Ellen Domb and Bill Bellows pointed out only a few years ago. In return, the TRIZ community has much to offer the Deming and Teilhard communities on the topic of innovation. Whereas the Teilhard-.Deming management theory does not include specific guidance on how to generate ideas for system improvement, TRIZ methods are well-suited to this task. Improving the dialog between the TRIZ community and the Teilhard and. Deming communities will provide “win-win” prospects for both communities. The aim of this webinar is to encourage and advance this dialog.

Baldrige School launches MS in Quality Program
The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business has set a MOD 1 (August 23, 2015) start date for its new Master of Science in Quality, Improvement, and Innovation degree program, which was recently approved by the State of Connecticut Department of Higher Education. Enrollment is now open.
The program will meet the employment needs of the many organizations who have acknowledged the link between quality, organizational improvement, and innovation initiatives, integrating these concepts into one system.
The program’s Academic Program Manager, Chuck Roe, promises the unique program will look at quality in terms of business, engineering, and manufacturing. “Students will explore the five elements of quality: producing, quality control, quality management, and continual improvement and innovation,” Chuck says, “and the program is designed to help students obtain three certifications: Lean Six Sigma, Design for Six Sigma, and Certification for TRIZ.” Roe adds that graduating students will “demonstrate a thorough knowledge of key business concepts such as total quality management, benchmarking techniques, creative problem solving, Design for Six Sigma (black belt), systems thinking, Lean Six Sigma (black belt), and Technology for Innovation (TRIZ).”
New Tools for Design
Cal Halliburton and Victoria Roza
“True inventions require the determination to solve multiple problems in order to overcome contradictions and yield creative solutions.”
In this classic article, Cal Halliburton has condensed and simplified the core of TRIZ application for everyone to easily digest and apply. Cal is a teacher by trade and he spent years studying TRIZ from various TRIZ Masters. His style is simple and effective. I am sure that you will enjoy this article and learn a great deal in the effort.
As every process change practitioner knows, simple business tools catch on. Who hasn’t heard of a SWOT chart – strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats? On the other hand how many business people know how to perform a SWOT analysis effectively? Drawing a SWOT chart might look easy, but solving the problem it represents is far from trivial. Many of us use the simple SWOT framework and hardly ever stop to think about what the structure of the chart really means. It is all too easy to fall into the trap of considering our work done if we can get the team members to agree on what to write in the four boxes! Unfortunately, the process often ends there. In this article, I’ll show how to go beyond a simplistic SWOT analysis and move on towards an actionable implementation strategy.
