TRIZ Principle 13: The Other Way Round (Inversion)

If you're having trouble solving a problem, sometimes it pays to think outside the box - or, in this case, inside the box. That's the thinking behind TRIZ, or "theory of inventive problem solving," which posits that the best way to solve a problem is to do the opposite of what might seem normal. So, if you're struggling to come up with a solution, try inverting the problem. That means doing things in reverse order, turning things upside down, or lifting instead of lowering. It sounds counterintuitive, but it just might work. Who knows? The next great invention could be yours.
