LIST Workshop at TRIZCON 2009

TRIZCON 2009 to be held in March 2009 in US, will also be hosting a workshop to be conducted by Crafitti Consulting on Lean Inventive Systems Thinking.

For those interested the details for registration and other information are available at Attending LIST Workshop at TRIZCON 2009

LEAN INVENTIVE SYSTEMS THINKING (LIST) framework with applications in Ultra Large Scale Systems Design, Services Design and Software Design

The globe is being re-engineered rapidly. Our businesses of today are not what they used to be even a decade back. Our existing methods of thinking – based on analytic and logical methods developed over last couple of centuries are suddenly looking in-effective in the new world of increasing globalization, increasing complexity and unprecedented pace. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the growing field of service and software design and innovation. Further, we are increasingly looking at the needs for designing Ultra Large Scale Systems.
In this context, Lean Inventive Systems Thinking (LIST) framework brings three key thinking dimensions –Lean Thinking, Inventive thinking and Systems Thinking to invigorate innovation in the design process. These three thinking dimensions integrate symbiotically with the dimensions of analytical thinking and logical thinking that has helped mankind succeed in the last few centuries.
The LIST framework holistically looks at needs, functions, structure and behavior of systems under an overall set-based evolutionary approach to design and includes the following elements:

Value Streams and Value Nets as a means to decode the concept of value
Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ) to bring holistic systems thinking and inventive triggers to create novel ideas,
Set-based concurrent engineering (SBCE) approach to the process of design
Dependency Structure Matrix (DSM) as a tool and approach to understand relationships and dependencies,
Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to facilitate complex decisions in multiple-criteria scenarios

The workshop will lead the participants through the elements of the framework using a “learning-by-doing” approach. The three main application areas – Ultra Large Scale Systems, Innovative Services and Software architecture and design will be explored during the workshop.
