This course provides a basic introduction to the Inventive Problem Solving Process known as “TRIZ” (Russian acronym for “Theory of Inventive Problem Solving”). TRIZ is a structured, “left-brained” approach to breakthrough innovation through the use of patterns of invention documented in the most inventive of the world’s patents.  This analysis demonstrates an overall algorithm, which when followed, allows anyone to provide breakthrough and novel solutions to problems as well as new product and business concepts.

Each participant will receive a complete set of course notes, a copy of the TRIZ 40 Inventive Principles, a copy of all course problems and solutions, and a copy of the book, The Ideal Result: What It Is and How to Achieve It, written by the instructor.

You Will Learn To:
 - Identify patterns of invention and describe how to use breakthrough ideas from parallel universe technology areas
 - Explain the basic TRIZ problem solving algorithm and its basic tools including Ideal Final Result, resource identification and use, contradiction resolution, 40 inventive principles and the TRIZ contradiction table
 - Explain how to use TRIZ for failure prediction and analysis
 - Explain how to use TRIZ for business and organizational problem solving
 - Describe TRIZ Lines of Evolution and how to use them for strategic planning, new product development, and forecasting
 - Explain how to integrate TRIZ with other enterprise tools and assessments
 - Describe how to integrate TRIZ effectively within your organization
