What if I told you that all problems are illusory figments of our imagination, and all solutions are predetermined based on our perceptions? Weinberg/Gause offered this definition: “A problem is a difference between things as desired and things as perceived.” Join Peter as he delves into the implications of this perspective. That the problems we encounter depend entirely on things we control, what we desire and what we perceive. If you’re looking for an eclectic exploration a little further off the beaten path, this is it.
Problem solving is often a skill that we assume we will simply pick up. It’s not a subject that is expressly taught. We change that here.
There are seemingly intractable problems that often have a simple solution. Finding the solution is an obscure, hidden and not terribly-well-marked path. Explore how to find your path through the problems that you face.
A deeper dive into TRIS, and key concepts of how to apply it to solve difficult and challenging problems. Understand your ideal final result, the resources you need and have available and how to manage and eliminate contradictions.
Within the world of problem solving, TRIZ is a less well-known framework. Which is important, because it is a very powerful and useful one.
We think of problems as being very different from each other, and therefore requiring different approaches to solve them. But what if most problems actually had a very similar structure, and a similar way of successfully resolving them?
