TRIZ – Theory of Innovative Problem Solving
Vickie Kamataris RN, MSN, HCSM, CPHQ, LSSMBB – Principal, E-Squared Performance Partners
Abstract: TRIZ (pronounced ‘trees’) is the Theory of Innovative Problem-Solving, a comprehensive systematic innovation methodology that is the product of over 2000 person years of research into successful solutions to problems. To the Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) practitioner, it is an antidote to the most common criticism of continuous process improvement methods, especially Six Sigma DMAIC: that disciplined approaches to process improvement have a dampening effect on creativity and innovation.
TRIZ tools can be applied to any problem, in any industry, within or outside the context of a LSS DMAIC project.

- TRIZ philosophy and methods
- TRIZ tools such as the 9-Box, 40 Inventive Principles, ARIZ, Ideality and Trimming, Action Mapping, Su-fi Analysis, 76 Standard Solutions, Contradiction Table, and Intensification
