Mankind has used patterns for thousands of years to solve everyday problems. Those patterns are now embedded into the products and services you see around you every day. These patterns are like the DNA of a product or service.

Now, imagine if you had a way to extract that DNA and reapply it to any product, process, or service. These patterns form the basis of a method called Systematic Inventive Thinking or SIT for short.
