A great example of TRIZ (theory of inventive problem solving) application to study materials is the project management process flow poster. The CONTRADICTION SOLVED here is "Amount of Substance" (400+ page PMBOK Guide) and "Convenience of use" (18"x24" chart showing both high-level overview as well as process-level detail, like inputs, tools and techniques, outputs and data flow) using "Transformation of properties" (scattered information in b/w print book to full color chart).
