Triz Workshop Abstract

TRIZ (The Theory of Inventive Problem Solving)

WHAT IF innovation could be structured to dramatically boost your Idea generation, creativity, and problem solving skills?

WHAT IF individuals could easily leverage the creative experiences of generations of the world’s best inventors?

That’s exactly why TRIZ was born in 1946 and it is a big part of this offering.  Most agree that inovation plays a critical role in an organizations success. Product (or Service) differentiation is vital to driving growth and achieving a competitive advantage. Many organizations are seeking USP’s (Unique Selling Propositions) to delight their customers. Systematic Innovation is an 8-step process that is being practiced by many organizations. When innovation is well managed, the process becomes repeatable and the innovation “hit rate” improves dramatically!

This workshop is about “unleashing” the natural and “un-natural” creativity your people didn’t know they had.  Learn how to apply and leverage some of the best strategies for understanding future needs, solving technical problems, and developing next generation products. Although this workshop will emphasize TRIZ tools, it adds elements beyond TRIZ because most of our clients that have asked for TRIZ are really looking to improve their “Innovation IQ”. This unique course teaches and demonstrates over 25 specific and proven strategies that dramatically increase any individual’s knowledge, creativity, and problem solving skills. 6 of the 25 strategies belong to a methodology called “TRIZ”, a Russian acronym for “The Theory of Inventive Problem Solving” and the other 18 are a mix between other technological and psychological tools for innovation.  These techniques are designed to significantly reduce the problem solvers dependency on their own knowledge, experience, and education to address technical challenges.

In brief, this TRIZ Workshop provides an efficient and effective way to tap into knowledge from a number of different industries, branches of technology, product development methods, and fields of engineering to solve problems and create new value for your customers. Engineers, scientists, and everyday professionals who are not particularly creative can not only understand future needs, but can efficiently develop “innovative” solutions to important product development challenges.
