The  Oxford TRIZ fundamentals e-learning course is about the best way I have found to get a fast and meaningful ACTIONABLE introduction to TRIZ thinking. The quality of the material, the sequence of the lessons and the masterful  distillation of the essence of TRIZ thinking into an online format where I control the pace made it perfect for me (working from home and large time zone differences would not let me attend a live session). 

It took me two weeks to complete the course, mostly on two weekends and have revisited it twice since then.

Access to the course for long enough time to review as my experience level with TRIZ thinking increases is a big plus as well as the downloadable material and access to Oxford TRIZ resources. 

Recommended to anyone looking forward to APPLYING creative and innovative thinking in the real world.

Really well presented course with a good mix of videos and graphics. Working alone, I found the worked examples particularly beneficial. Will recommend.
