The Theory of Inventive Problem Solving

At CU-ICAR, Greenville, South Carolina
What is TRIZ?
TRIZ (pronounced "Treez") is the leading innovative problem-solving method based on logic and data analysis, which accelerates your ability to solve difficult problems creatively. TRIZ provides repeatability, predictability, and reliability due to its structure and algorithmic approach. TRIZ is a (Russian) acronym for the "theory of inventive problem solving," which was developed by G.S.Altshuller and his colleagues in the former U.S.S.R. between 1946 and 1985, and has been expanded by a global community of TRIZ practitioners including your instructors from 1985 to the present.
TRIZ relies on the study of the patterns of problems and solutions, not on the spontaneous and intuitive creativity of individuals or groups. In the formulation of TRIZ methodology, more than 3 million patents and case studies have been analyzed to decipher the patterns that predict breakthrough solutions to the difficult problems that modern organizations face.
TRIZ Practitioner Certification Course
This course is based on a practical, step-by-step method to apply modern TRIZ Systematic Innovation to solving complex problems in business and technology, in corporations and in governmental or non-governmental organizations.
