One day workshops with The Institution of Engineering and Technology (

The IET work in partnership with Oxford Creativity, the leading TRIZ training provider in Europe, to deliver this fast-paced introduction to TRIZ with hands-on experience of the most commonly used TRIZ tools: the 40 Inventive Principles, the Trends of Technical Evolution, Resources and Thinking in Time and Scale.

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.
