Workshop Wednesday: TRIZ Meets ‘How Might We…?’


Each Wednesday we post a photograph that illustrates some of our work.

This one shows our combination of TRIZ and Min Basadur’s “How Might We…” method to spark divergent thinking about the causes of failure resulting in some very wild lists of ways to do so. This first step is followed by a second in which participants pick from the list the activities they’re already doing. Step three is very simple: agree to stop doing those failure-inducing things. We encourage folks to write those agreements down, sign them, and share them with colleagues who can hold them accountable.

Check back next Wednesday for another perspective on how we work.
