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.
is intended for those who want to learn TRIZ at the
advanced level and incorporate its techniques to
The course explains in
detail such advanced TRIZ tools as:
- Function Analysis for
products modeling and problem discovery,
introduction to Function Analysis of processes;
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
- 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
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.
