The TRIZ process offers a rigorous and systematic approach to understanding any problem and uncovering the most effective route to practical solutions. 

 Learning this proven process will help you solve problems, generate new ideas and develop systems quickly, cheaply and inventively. 

Based on concepts distilled from the analysis of past engineering successes, TRIZ can be applied to both technical and management problems in order to generate workable solutions.
