You are not alone. Every other conferences and discussion forums, we do hear the questions, “HOW to” TRIZ for IT/Software. There are few articles and commentary section in TRIZ Journal about applying TRIZ for software. You can find some from my commentary section too. To start with, identify the problem using 9-windows and IFR. IT management is about a bigger super-system, and understanding the bigger picture will help you. Resources is an important technique in TRIZ for IT related problems. Trends can help you what next in the IT (especially when technology is evolving faster than we breath), look at FAA (Function Attribute Analysis) to understand the connections between modules/components of your software system, and finally ( I really meant it) use the contradiction matrix- suggest to look at a business/software contradiction matrix available from authors like Darrell Mann.

Just learn ARIZ deep enough. Then you will get domain free tool for software management and many other domain. Private life included.

For more advanced tool I can recommend you OTSM and Its toools. It work for complex interdisciplinary problematic situations managing. It is also domain free tools.

The best way is attending good educational program at least 80 hours.  It seems too long, but it will pay back much more for the rest of your life. Above all ARIZ is a very good tools to analyze problematic situation, overcome your metal inertia and activate your unconscious creative skills.


Another good  source of Information is a book of Y. Salamatov Right Solution at Exact time. It is opinion of the author but very closer to what Altshuller taught during his classes. Many things is missing there.  However it is one of the best source of information available in English.


One more source is a handbook was created in the course of European Project – TETRIS. Gaetano Cascini was scientific leader of the project.  I wrote  for them an example that show more or less  detail example with lot of comments about real life problem ARIZ application. Unfortunately some for some European bureaucratic reasons I had to stop my participation in the project and the example was not finished. However first parts of ARIZ-85-C is there with detail explanations.


 If you can read Russian I can advise you list of original Altshuller's papers  and educational materials about ARIZ.
