The Annual TRIZ Conference the TRIZCON 2007 started in Louisville, Kentucy today.

interesting set of people are moving towards TRIZ, working on - how to use it.

People are moving towards integrating TRIZ with some of the other techniques of problem solving

It is interesting to see the major activity in TRIZ is happening more in ASIA... May be an indication of where we need more Innovation as actual work is happening more and more in Asia as Europe and US tend to move into coordinating or managing role....

Future is moving towards Asia - is that right?

Innovation is not "Repeat Order"

Seen umpteen instances:

Once a team successfully comes out with something new, the enterprises says - dont touch them - we expect something from them again - give them more budget - (more salary as well) - more resources - more people - but DONT DISTURB THE CORE TEAM ......

We form teams and believe we will continue to work in the same team with different projects and be innovative each time we want since we were innovative and we enjoyed our first project together .... Well Nice to know your buddies and be with them... But dont expect success repeated - something new each time you get with the same people on a new project .... INNOVATION IS NOT A "REPEAT ORDER".......

You need to reformat your team and start from scratch each time you need to Innovate.....

It is again.... NOT A REPEAT ORDER .....

From Change or Die to Change And Thrive...

Alan Deutschman's (FastCompany's writer) new book "Change or Die" is an interesting read. Mapping Change to Learning and how to do it not from the traditional methods of Facts, Fear and Force, but in a new framework of Relate, Repeat and Reframe.

Continuous Learning through participation with the community that practices what you want to learn is the key.

As Innovation is about change and since as per Alan change is about learning - one can safely assume Innovation is about continuous learning... coming back to Peter Senge's "The Fifth Discipline".....
