Systematic Inventive Thinking®1. Thinking Tools Your first encounter will be SIT’s five unique Thinking Tools, i.e. structured thinking procedures. These tools are the core of the SIT method, and were developed through rigorous research, studying thousands of patents and inventive solutions. Our practical innovation tool box enables you to follow successful thinking patterns that lead to inventive ideas. You’ll acquire hands-on tools that can be used independently and sustainably. The elimination of core components rather than an addition of new Subtraction systems and functions - “The Path of Most Resistance”. The assignment of new tasks to an existing resource (i.e. any element Task Unification of the product or its vicinity within the manufacturer’s control). Introducing a slightly modified copy of an existing object into the Multiplication current system The division of a product and/or its components and rearranging Division them in time or space, thus adding degrees of freedom. The creation/removal of symmetries or dependencies between Attribute Dependency existing product and environmental variables (e.g. colour changes with temperature, etc.).
Systematic Inventive Thinking®2. Principles Since the tools can only work if used properly, the SIT Principles are designed to guide you to apply the tools effectively. The principles help overcome cognitive barriers and mental blocks that undermine creative processes. Applying the tools and principles proactively, help companies break their fixed thinking about their business and lead to innovative, yet practical, ideas. “Qualitative Change” “Constraints Enhance Creativity” “Function Follows Form” “Closed World” “Path of Most Resistance” “Near, Far, Sweet” “Cognitive Fixedness” “Virtual Product” “Limit Rather Than Dilute” “Bi-polarity”
Systematic Inventive Thinking®3. Facilitation While the SIT tools and principles can be applied by any one, companies truly capitalize on their impact when they’re applied in a team setting. Your next stop on the SIT journey is at Facilitation Skills, where we have devised, borrowed and honed a range of skills that assist you in dealing with various situations and resistances that you may encounter while innovating as a team. These techniques help facilitators make the process truly interactive (and fun!), and ensure that groups manage to work together in a focused, and therefore more effective, manner.
Systematic Inventive Thinking®4. Project Management Coming up with new ideas is definitely the more exciting aspect of innovation, and brings with it a lot of enthusiasm and motivation. Yet often these feelings wear off gradually once routine processes of implementation kick in. In order to ensure that ideas are not only generated but actually implemented, next SIT introduces you to its methods for Project Management, to make sure you don’t go off track when things tend to tone down. These include a collection of processes and techniques that lead desirable ideas on an accountable and structured track until they reach fruition.
Systematic Inventive Thinking®5. Organizational Innovation Innovation projects are important, but as everyone knows, no single innovation can deliver lasting advantages.
