TRIZ: Turns Good Engineers
into Great Engineers
Oxford Creativity will show you how to be innovative and solve your problems systematically with TRIZ. We will help you nurture, develop and sustain a culture of creative innovation with your organisation.
TRIZ (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) was created by engineers, for engineers (so we can be confident that it works) and it works for everyone. TRIZ is a problem solving toolkit; the principal TRIZ tools direct us to find all the ways of solving a problem, to find new concepts and the routes for developing new products. TRIZ offers systematic innovation; by learning TRIZ and following its rules we can accelerate creative problem solving for both individuals and project teams.

Blocked by a competitor's patent? Need innovative new product concepts to create strong patents? Learn TRIZ for Patents: Enhancing Invention and Innovation. December 2015

Oxford Creativity has been helping companies to develop new products and extend Intellectual Property (IP) with TRIZ for over 16 years.

We have created a fast-paced, interactive workshop where engineers, inventors, IP engineers and patent attorneys can learn the most powerful and useful TRIZ tools for tackling intellectual property.

Innovation without TRIZ is like a sea voyage without a compass - K Gadd Conference paper

Unaided by TRIZ it can and does work, if we’re lucky, but why would we risk it?

Karen Gadd - Oxford Creativity

Karen Gadd, keynote speaker at 2015 Innova-Con (USA Innovation Conference) and TRIZ Con, Altshuller Institute’s annual gathering presented a paper examining how TRIZ completes all other innovation toolkits - filling in their gaps, complementing their power and efficacy to deliver a complete and effective toolkit. 

 Offering a pragmatic view of how simple and straightforward it is to achieve TRIZ Innovation, the conclusions drawn are from 15 years of practitioner experience working with teams in global companies successfully implementing Oxford TRIZ in industry.

From Russia with TRIZ - Oxford Times

Maggie Hartford, Business Reporter and Books Editor from Oxford Times, speaks to Karen Gadd from Oxford Creativity on TRIZ.

"An acronym of its Russian title, Teoriya Resheniya Izobretatelskikh Zadatch, TRIZ is said to encapsulate the science of creativity. And it is not based on a Eureka moment, but on a systematic trawl through existing knowledge." 

Karen Gadd, Oxford Creativity on TRIZ
