To what extent is TRIZ/TIPS an agile method?

  • Since the late twentieth century, the business environment has changed dramatically: globalization, rapid and even accelerating change, as well as increasing interconnected-ness have presented companies with both great opportunities and challenges. In order to achieve excellence and be successful, it is no longer enough to use conventional tools and methods. Due to their qualities to effectively deal with these changed circumstances, agile development methodologies are increasingly receiving access to the corporate world. The goal of this bachelor's thesis is to ascertain to what extent the "Theory of Inventive Problem Solving" (short: TRIZ/TIPS) can be considered an agile method. To get an overview of both TRIZ/TIPS and agile methods, a thorough literature review on both subjects of matter is conducted at the beginning. Subsequently, a catalogue of criteria for agile meth-ods is developed based on an in-depth literature review on their character. Eventually, interviews with experts are carried out in order to gather their opinion about the concord-ance of TRIZ/TIPS with each of the prior developed criteria for agile methods. By doing so, it is found out that TRIZ/TIPS definitely has agile characteristics and can thus be called partially agile–however, the opinions of the individual experts sometimes vary greatly, and the topic itself seems to be controversial.
