An introduction to, and overview of, the TRIZ tools, the TRIZ problem solving process and the fundamentals of creative problem solving and innovative thinking. You learn and use the TRIZ tools for developing systems and intellectual property protection (the TRIZ Trends of Technical Evolution) and for understanding and mapping problems and solutions (9 boxes).


Follow on this 1-day course with our 2-day Patent TRIZ workshop.  

An exciting, informative and invaluable workshop that will give inventors, engineers, scientists and patent professionals the tools with which to derive greater value from intellectual property.

TRIZ is the ideal toolkit for developing or circumventing patents. TRIZ provides a clear method of identifying the strengths and weaknesses of current products (yours and the competition!).

TRIZ will give you a path to develop your inventions in a systematic way. TRIZ will help you to learn to predict how inventions are likely to evolve, enabling you to develop a strong patent portfolio of your own inventions, and leapfrog or ringfence your competitors’ patents.

TRIZ is unique in that it is based upon patent analysis. The TRIZ Tools are perfectly suited to circumvent and strengthen patents.

Many innovation-driven businesses use TRIZ to develop and protect their Intellectual Property because it generates both incremental and revolutionary improvements on their inventions.

  • Introduction to TRIZ and the Fundamentals of Systematic, Practical, Innovative Effective Problem Solving.  An overview of TRIZ – its origins and applications.
  • How TRIZ has been used to solve real problems – case studies and examples.  Simple creativity exercises to help you to use your brain and experiences more effectively.  An introduction to the TRIZ toolkit and process – you learn four TRIZ tools during this workshop.
  • Contradictions. Learn how to identify and solve contradictions to find powerful solutions to your problems with the 40 Inventive Principles.  An exercise on the 40 Inventive Principles and how they can be used to find ingenious and robust solutions.
  • 8 Trends of evolution and next-generation products:  How to predict technological advances; Using TRIZ Trends to perfect products; An exercise on the future development of products.
  • Resources:  Learn how to systematically get what we want with the resources we already have.
