'Patent TRIZ' 2-day course - 19-20 March 2019

PATENT STRATEGY AND CREATING STRONG PATENTS

An introduction to how TRIZ thinking and the TRIZ tools can help us think clearly, and a senior attorney explains how to develop an intelligent patent strategy. 

The Ideal Outcome is used to uncover and identify all unmet needs for a new invention, and Thinking in Time and Scale is used to chart the past, present and future of our inventions: helping us uncover future opportunities for and threats to our intellectual property. We understand how the TRIZ tools for understanding and solving Contradictions help us understand patents and see new opportunities for creating clever inventions, and the Effects database can help us develop new inventions using proven technology.

UNDERSTANDING AND CIRCUMVENTING EXISTING PATENTS

Attorneys take us through how to understand patents and assess the inventive step. The most powerful tool for analysing a patent - TRIZ Function Analysis - is introduced, and we learn how to circumvent or leapfrog a patent by systematically applying the Trimming Rules. We apply the TRIZ Trends of Technical Evolution to develop inventions to their next generation, allowing us to leapfrog competing technologies, or ring-fence our own.

BENEFITS OF THE TRIZ APPROACH

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 to you develop a strong patent portfolio of your own inventions, and leapfrog or ring-fence 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.
