Paradoxes and Organizational Learning in Continuous Improvement Approaches: Using the TRIZ Principles for Developing Problem Solving Performance in a Michelin Plant

Abstract : Continuous improvement approaches advocate the development of organizational learning to support the system of problem solving. For this, companies use different strategies for implementing of continuous improvement. A survey has been conducted showing that these strategies can have a paradoxical impact on the performance of problem solving. How can we explain the difficulties faced by companies in the development of problem solving? The classical learning model used by the majority of companies generates contradictions called “empirical”. To provide an innovative contribution to the problem-solving learning problematic, TRIZ theory and paradox theory are used to characterize a problem model (in the form of paradoxes and organizational tensions) and a solution model (in the form of paradoxical practices). Finally, a case study in the form of experimentation in one of the Michelin factories is realized. The specific problem is modeled using TRIZ and the paradoxical approach. An organizational innovation called “problem solving pull (PSP ©)” has been developed. This specific solution made it possible to eliminate some of the tensions and make the problem-solving learning system more dynamic.
