TRIZ in Transformation

TRIZ is a Russian innovation and product design process, which can be effectively used in transformative change process and change management. It helps remove the constraints that hinder innovation and get completely original solutions. As a process it treats the problems and contradictions as part of the system and operates accordingly. TRIZ as a transformation tool first identifies where the contradiction exists in the system. Then in trying to meet both elements of the contradiction it searches for freely available resources that can resolve the paradox. Considering these resources, it becomes much easier to find an innovative solution to the problem.

“Being a Coach” – A poem on change by Ketan Varia

Being a coach

Just because you have tasted success,
it doesn’t mean there isn’t another way.

Just because you can see the pitfalls,
don’t forget the learning from them.

Only advise when you are clear,
that two points of understanding need joining,
otherwise move along.

For the path the way to change,
can only be discovered by the self.

Transformational Change: What It Is and How It Works

Almost 59% of corporations fail to meet at least one of their transformational change objectives.[1]

Why is this number so dismal? All large organisations are likely to go through change processes, whether that’s introducing a new IT system, developing new products or reorganising into a new structure. Transformational change, however, can be particularly difficult to achieve: it demands comprehensive innovation, flexibility and a willingness to work with abstract ideas.
