TRIZ Certification

The Altshuller Institute has realized that standardized certification is essential to promoting TRIZ.

  • First of all, certification adds interest to new TRIZ users because there is something tangible that they can achieve and there is room to progress.
  • Secondly, certification is essential to legitimize the methodology because it will become apparent that someone with more TRIZ training is able to solve problems more effectively and efficiently than someone with little or no TRIZ training.
  • Thirdly, companies require a simple means to evaluate how proficient a potential or current employee is in utilizing the TRIZ methodology.

Additionally, certification must be defined by a universal set of guidelines so that terms like "TRIZ Associate" and "TRIZ Specialist" have the same meaning regardless of where the TRIZ user was trained. Therefore, a non-profit and global organization, such as the Altshuller Institute, must spearhead this initiative. To this end, Victor Fey, the Institute's Certification Director, has begun to develop guidelines for certification.
