Creative thinking is a critical skill required by all people within their roles at work. It is often done by trial and error – the thinker creates an idea and determines if it will work. Not only is trial and error limited by personal knowledge, thinking is also constrained by a “stuckness” in how things are and how they should be.

  18. 18. Routine causes of psychological inertia; Having a fixed vision (or model) of the solution or root cause. False assumptions (trusting the data). Language that is a strong carrier of psychological inertia. Specific terminology carries psychological inertia. Experience, expertise and reliance upon previous results. Limited knowledge, hidden resources or mechanisms. Inflexibility (model worship; trying to prove a specific theory, stubbornness). Using the same strategy. Keep thinking the same way and you will continue to get the same result. Rushing to a solution – incomplete thinking. - Trizics. Gordan Cameron Michael Cardus - www.Create- Learning.com

  22. 22. 1. write the problem / current system for solutions in the center of a 3 x 3 matrix Michael Cardus - www.Create- Learning.com
  23. 23. Past Present Future Super-System System Ladder slipped and employee was injured in fall Sub-System Example: Plan for safety improvement Michael Cardus - www.Create- Learning.com
  24. 24. Next, explore the problem at each of the three levels: oSuper-system: External environment and components that the problem or system interacts or may interact with. oSystem: The problem or system that was created. oSub-system: A component or parts of the problem or system. Michael Cardus - www.Create- Learning.com
  25. 25. Past Present Future Super-System Corporation were message that safety is a priority has not gotten through System Ladder slipped and employee was injured in fall Sub-System Workers remember the incidents, in spite of management’s assertion that safety is paramount. Example: Plan for safety improvement Michael Cardus - www.Create- Learning.com
  26. 26. Once you have explored the problem and the system in the present, move on to the past and the future. Time line - you can choose the time line you want, selecting a specific date or leaving the dates open in the past and future. Michael Cardus - www.Create- Learning.com
  27. 27. Past Present Future Super-System Corporation where safety not a priority Corporation were message that safety is a priority has not gotten through Corporation where safety is a priority System Employees take occasional risks to get the job done Ladder slipped and employee was injured in fall Injury rate will be unacceptable Sub-System Management has criticized workers who stop production in the face of danger. Workers remember the incidents, in spite of management’s assertion that safety is paramount. Management has provided positive recognition for stopping production in the face of danger. Example: Plan for safety improvement Michael Cardus - www.Create- Learning.com
  28. 28. Explore all nine windows by asking: oCan we do something at the sub-system in advance to fix or avoid the problem or improve the system? oCan we do something at the system in advance to fix or avoid the problem or improve the system? oCan we do something at the super-system level in advance to fix or avoid the problem or improve the system? oCan we do something at the sub-system level in the future to fix or avoid the problem or improve the system? oCan we do something at the system level in the future to fix or avoid the problem or improve the system? oCan we do something at the super-system level in the future to fix or avoid the problem or improve the system? oCan we do something at the sub-system level in the present to fix or avoid the problem or improve the system? oCan we do something at the system level in the present to fix or avoid the problem or improve the system? oCan we do something at the super-system level in the present to fix or avoid the problem or improve the system?
