INTRODUCTION   This unique five-day intensive hands-on course aims at acquiring and mastering skills with modern Advanced TRIZ and Systematic Innovation in Business and Management. The course provides understanding of the advanced TRIZ principles of function analysis of business systems and processes, introduces key techniques of systematic innovative problem solving, and explains how to put these techniques to practice.

The acquired practical skills help the course participants to correctly identify and formulate problems, resolve conflicts in a "win-win" way, as well as produce new ideas for products and services based on a guided process. In addition to learning about philosophy, principles of power thinking, and concepts of Systematic Innovation, the participants acquire the basic practical skills of working with a number of advanced TRIZ and xTRIZ techniques during the course through:
  • Understanding a scope of advanced TRIZ and Systematic Innovation.
  • Modeling system/process relationships with TRIZ-based Function Analysis to identify and solve problems in the existing business systems and processes.
  • Studying and practicing with Object-Field Modeling and Inventive Standards: "standard" patterns of solving inventive problems in business and management.
  • Learning how to create new business products or business models based on merging alternative business products or business models.
  • Understanding the key Trends of Business Systems Evolution to assess evolutionary potential of current business models and identify strategic directions of business systems innovation and improvement.

The course is based a practical framework developed by ICG T&C during many years of practice. This framework extends classical TRIZ and puts it to the practical use within business and management environments. The course participants work on real examples during the course to better understand the TRIZ philosophy and make it applicable to a broad diversity of problems, products and services.

The course usually hosts international audience and is conducted in English.
