Systematic Inventive Thinking

Systematic Inventive Thinking is a problem-solving tool used to come up with innovative solutions to difficult challenges.

In order to be successful in business, you need to be able to think outside the box. This is where Systematic Inventive Thinking (SIT) comes in. This approach to problem-solving can help you come up with innovative solutions to difficult challenges.

SIT is based on five thinking tools:

  1. Subtraction: This tool is about removing something from a product or process in order to simplify it. For example, you could remove the need for a physical key by using a fingerprint scanner to unlock a door.
  2. Multiplication: This tool is about duplicating an element in order to increase its functionality. For example, you could add a second camera to a cell phone so that it can be used as a digital microscope.
  3. Division: This tool is about breaking down a product or process into smaller parts. For example, you could divide a car into its component parts and sell them separately.
  4. Task unification: This tool is about combining two or more tasks into one. For example, you could develop a cell phone that also doubles as a flashlight.
  5. Attribute dependency: This tool is about changing the way an attribute is used. For example, you could use the wheels of a car to generate electricity that can be used to power the car’s lights.

By using these tools, you can come up with creative solutions to difficult problems. SIT has been used successfully in a variety of industries, including healthcare, automotive, and consumer products. If you are facing a challenge in your business, consider using SIT to find an innovative solution.
