Rationale

Creativity is perceived by many to be the result of intuition, a brainwave or sudden inspiration. There are those who believe that one cannot generate original ideas methodically. However, Methodical Inventive Thinking challenges this convention and offers a technique for generating creative ideas.     Methodical Inventive Thinking focuses on principles of thinking that at first glance may seem contradictory. Workshop participants learn to become more flexible about trying other channels of thought, while at the same time remaining focused to quickly exhaust the line of thinking engaged upon.   When we examine breakthrough solutions for individual problems, we often come to the conclusion that there aren’t and cannot be any rules for creativity. But when we analyze a large number of inventions, patents or new products, we find, in fact, that there are basic templates that can help experts come up with creative inventions and ideas in their field of expertise. These templates are directly linked to how the human mind functions and defy built-in fixations in how we think and learn.       Inventive thinking is based on an algorithm that can bring about a breakthrough both in shortening the length of time needed to reach creative solutions and in increasing the probability of successfully identifying inventive directions. Despite the tremendous potential inherent in this method, we would like to mention that internalizing it requires a certain amount of time and practice. This by no means a “quick fix”.  

Advantages of Methodical Inventive Thinking

 

 

  • The method makes it possible to spend a shorter amount of time on problem solving and increase the chances of reaching creative solutions.

 

 

 

  • Expanding one’s thinking repertoire. The method provides guidelines for creativity and tools supported by scientific research.

 

 

 

  • Unlike many other methods, Methodical Inventive Thinking enables teams to continue coming up with original ideas and unusual solutions over time.

 

 

 

  • Participants are guided through a series of questions during the problem solving process which often lead to new insights in addition to the resolution of a specific problem.

 

 

 

  • The method practices increased flexibility of thought.

 

 

Clients and experience

Methodical Inventive Thinking has been successfully implemented in many organizations all around the globe. See our client list. click to read full client stories.

Clients – Panta Rhei Knowledge systems

      Breakthrough solutions were generated by course graduates. For example, at KLA-Tencor, a company dealing with sophisticated mechanization for sterile rooms in the semiconductor industry, following the workshop the development team came up with an innovative solution which the company then patented.  At Master Meter of the Arad Group we actively mentored the development of the Octave ultrasonic water meter. see the clip below on how it generates revenue for the utility and on it’s maintenance robustness.

Intellectual Property: Product – Service – Technology Development

 

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”, said Lao Tze – a Chinese sage. An innovation project teaches the organization and its project leaders to fish.

The innovation project deals with creating a competitive edge over time – an edge that will be reflected in business results, marketing or technology. Our goal is to have a definitive impact on the organization. We measure the project’s success according to business parameters in the form of sales results, profitability, company value, and a sense of ‘before and after’.

Sometimes the direction is clear for us to follow. At other time we are in a “red ocean” and look for a blue ocean; define the “world” our invention will live in. We use blue Ocean Strategy tools as well as Methodical Inventive Thinking tools to come up with original ideas. At the end of the project the methodology, the expert network we established together, and the culture we built are the basis for future developments.

 

DIGITAL New Service Development

for Finance, Medical and Service organizations

It is quite tricky to gain a sustainable competitive edge in the service market because most services are so easily and so quickly reproduced. We believe that the Digital marketing, social network activity, and smartphone applications are a great platform for new service to hold competitive edge. The idea is develop some IT code that will differentiate our service for a period of time.

Learning process

This is an intensive program consisting of partial lectures accompanied by individual and group work. The contents are of an academic level with examples from the field. Participants will be expected do their best to set aside their daily routine and keep a clear head throughout the workshop period. At the end of each session, participants are expected to devote about one hour to preparing for the coming one.
