The Full TRIZ Toolkit - 5 day Basic & Advanced TRIZ, 1-5 July 2019

TRIZ Training 

Effective TRIZ Problem Solving in 5 days

Oxford Creativity’s greatest success has been the development of a unique and effective TRIZ Training Workshop Programme which can help anyone learn TRIZ, be effective and self sufficient in TRIZ problem solving in the minimum possible time.

Oxford Creativity has developed a programme of 5 intense days, in order to fit in with the busy schedules of the engineers and managers who learn with us. These 5 days are split into 2 workshops: Basic and Advanced TRIZ.


Day 1: Fast Track TRIZ:  40 Principles, Thinking in Time and Scale and the Trends of Technical Evolution

An introduction to, and overview of, the TRIZ tools,  TRIZ problem solving process and 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).

TRIZ tools and thinking in time and scale

Day 2: Solving Contradictions and Using Resources

Learn and use the TRIZ tools for solving technical and physical contradictions (40 Inventive Principles, Separation Principles, 39 Parameters and the TRIZ matrix), and learn how to solve problems cleverly by using what we have: our Resources. You learn the TRIZ creativity tools of Ideal Outcome, X-factor and Ideality, and learn how to use the TRIZ tools in combination to solve problems.

The workshop includes many exercises to help delegates learn the most easily accessible and perhaps most useful Innovation tools, the TRIZ tools for solving contradictions and generating new ideas. Participants are given their own, easy to use and understand, copy of the Contradiction Matrix, the TRIZ 40 Principles (both for technical and business problems), and the 8 Trends of Evolution. 

Day 3: Function Analysis, Standard Solutions and the Creativity Tools

Learn the full tool-kit of TRIZ Creativity Tools for breaking psychological inertia and generating creative ideas. Learn the powerful tool for mapping engineering systems, understanding systems and solving problems: TRIZ Function Analysis and complete your TRIZ toolkit by learning the TRIZ Standard Solutions, simple and powerful lists for fast and effective problem solving. 

Advanced TRIZ

Day 4: The Problem Solving Process

The Advanced workshop concentrates on the practical application of TRIZ on difficult, real world problems. Learn how to use all the TRIZ tools together in the systematic TRIZ problem solving process, and how to define and understand problems. Learn how to use the 9 Boxes in more advanced ways for understanding and predicting hazards and root cause problems, and how to quickly and effectively capture all needs with the Ideal Outcome. The day finishes with a hands-on exercise stepping through the problem solving process on either an engineering or a management issue.

Day 5: Facilitating TRIZ

Explore and experience how to facilitate creative thinking in other people: get practical experience in facilitating a group, stepping through a single problem using different TRIZ tools, putting the whole process together.

Creativity Tools 

There will also be a number of creativity tools to help delegates become familiar with simple but powerful tools to help break psychological inertia. These are tools for both problem understanding and solving and are clever techniques to help get the most out of your brain.  Creative team building is central to all the exercises in these workshops and our training days are designed to make maximum use of the time available and are rigorous, interactive and challenging. Each workshop lasts 8 hours and a substantial part of each day is taken up with learning exercises.
