"This course is an absolute must for everybody who wishes to obtain a deep understanding of the entire range of TRIZ tools and more from one of the best TRIZ trainers. After this course you will be able to apply TRIZ immediately to real problems within your own job.
R&D and International Production Director, The Netherlands


This unique training course offers full five days of intensive "immersion" to Level 2 advanced TRIZ and Systematic Innovation. The course contents was developed on the basis of over 20 years of experience with performing TRIZ training and consulting projects within diverse industries. The course provides learning and mastering practical skills with advanced TRIZ techniques which are usually not learned during introductory and basic TRIZ training, and which help with dealing with most challenging innovative tasks on developing new and improving existing products and technologies.
The course is intended for those who want to learn TRIZ at the advanced level and incorporate its techniques to everyday use.
The course explains in detail such advanced TRIZ tools as:

  • Function Analysis for products modeling and problem discovery, introduction to Function Analysis of processes;
  • Functional-Ideal Modeling (also known as Trimming) - a technique for simplifying systems and processes without losing quality and performance;
  • A system of 76 Inventive Standards and Substance-Field Modeling for sharpened inventive problem solving, creating new breakthrough products through transferring features of alternative competing products.
  • Alternative Systems Merging: how to create new breakthrough products and technologies by merging competing systems.

The course also provides introduction to the Algorithm of Solving Inventive Problems (ARIZ). The course includes intensive practical work with real-world problems brought by the participants.

The course is highly interactive and focuses on practice.

The course is conducted in English and in most cases involves international audience from different countries.

  • Fundamentals of Advanced TRIZ. TRIZ as a theory for innovation front-end and as a collection of tools and techniques to support correct problems formulation and new ideas generation in a systematic way.
  • Roadmap to advanced TRIZ techniques.
  • Understanding product and process evolution via innovative problem solving.
  • TRIZ-based Function Analysis to model functional interactions within a product or a process to discover problems and challenges which can be used for innovative improvement of a selected product or technology.
  • TRIZ-based Function Analysis of Processes.
  • Practice with TRIZ-based Function Analysis on the customer's problems.
  • Functional Idealization (Trimming): increasing benefits/costs ratio of products and processes.
  • Substance-Field Modeling to build abstract models of various problems in unified way.
  • 76 Inventive Standards: a structured collection of practical techniques on eliminating negative and improving positive effects within products and processes.
  • Practice with Substance-Field Modeling, Trimming, and Inventive Standards on  customer's problems.
