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.

Inventing our future accelerator. CERN Courier

Could a methodology used for invention in engineering find a role in guiding the innovative process that will be essential for future large-scale accelerator projects?

Andrei Seryi, director of the John Adams Institute, University of Oxford writes a very interesting article ....

Accelerator science and technology exhibits a rich history of inventions that now spans almost a century. The fascinating story of accelerator development, which is particularly well described in Engines of Discovery: A Century of Particle Accelerators by Andy Sessler and Ted Wilson (CERN Courier September 2007 p63), can also be summarized in the so-called "Livingston plot", where the equivalent energy of an accelerated beam is shown as a function of time.

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
