Agile was born from the necessity to adapt product development to market changes. In the 1990s Agile Enterprise, the Agility combined with Lean practices resulted in fast market release of products combined with efficiency delivered by waste reduction and improved development and build processes. Using Lean Six Sigma for innovation brought efficacy and efficiency. In any product development, systematical innovation is crucial to the competitiveness. Although TRIZ (Theory of Solving Inventive Problems) has been developed with special emphasis on manufacturing, it is after all an approach to product development and process improvement. TRIZ proved useful in process problem solving, so it can be useful for all project management issues and activities.
