TRIZ is a powerful disruptive technology that demonstrates that creativity and innovation skills can be learned. This is paradym shift of immense importance to improve the effectiveness of individuals and organizations in product development and management and to all who would like to participate in STEM related areas. TRIZ is unique in that it was developed from empirical data -- patent research. A knowledge of TRIZ can benefit all segments of the population. It can be taught to children to stimulate creativity and improve critical thinking. TRIZ provides a host of tools and concepts to enhance systematic problem solving skills. TRIZ can be learned through reading, lectures, coaching and practice in the same way as we learn how to play a musical instrument or become a professional sports player. Improved and accelerated learning can be accomplished from professional TRIZ Providers.
We are the only organization officially authorized by Genrikh Altshuller, the founder of TRIZ, to use his name. TRIZ (pronounced treez) is the Russian acronym for the "Theory of Inventive Problem Solving." TRIZ is a powerful systematic methodology, based on empirical data (study of patents) that can provide solution concepts for a wide range of technical and non-technical problems.
