What should be done with complex interdisciplinary Problem?

Often enough people asked about how to manage complex interdisciplinary problematic situation. In frame of OTSM evolution for this purpose was developed Problem Flow Networks (PFN) approach. It was tested for many times for various problems. However it works for not so much complex problem as well. Same as Classical ARIZ

The Key Question to be answered by Classical TRIZ

Once I've seen list of 300 of creativity methods and it was not complete. Many people belive that the more methods you know the better... Should we learn all of those 300 methods and do the same?
What for?
How long it will take and how much will be the cost?

My First infection with TRIZ and OTSM

I was infected by TRIZ when it was converted from Algorithm to a Applied Scientific Theory for creating tools (instruments?) for solving non typical problems. It was 1979, book that original title was proposed by Genrich Altshuller - Exact Science Instead Of Creativity. Publisher was afraid of this challenged title and replace it by less challenged - Creativity As An Exact Science... I was electronical engineer and book was full of mechanical examples.

Comment on Comment of Ellen Domb (August 29, 2008)

Dear Ellen.
I am very sorry for so long delay with my reaction. As you knows I prefer customers with complex interdisciplinary problematic situations and long term relationships with them. This helps me to carry out my research and Develop OTSM further. And it is useful for my customers to improve their product services and strategy. Bad news here is that those projects involve me completely and I have not so much time to maintain my blog. I like a lot this way of communication But…. See above…
