TRIZ: Structured Innovation.
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. It was observed that each of these patents used one of 40 or so principles to resolve inherent contradictions – for example, the fact that the wing of an aircraft must be both strong and light.
Using TRIZ, a team starts by clearly defining a problem it is trying to solve; identifying an ideal state, then looking for contradictions and the appropriate principle to resolve them. The team then looks for examples of solved problem that shared the contradictions with its own problem or applied the same principles. This then leads to an innovative approach to get to the ideal state.
Coffee & TRIZ
Coffee and TRIZ is an open community forum to provide mechanisms for the exchange of information and knowledge on TRIZ and TRIZ-based innovation technologies & tools. It aims to allow novices and experts alike to meet over coffee in an informal, relaxed environment to share challenges and recent achievements and discuss/collaborate on opportunities for the application of TRIZ methodology for finding Inventive Solutions.
