Valeri Souchkov, TRIZ Master
courses in TRIZ and Systematic Innovation
WHY TRIZ AND SYSTEMATIC INNOVATION?
During last 20
years, TRIZ-based Systematic Innovation has been adapted
practically by all major industries. Many world leading
companies such as Bombardier, General Electric, Hyundai,
Procter & Gamble, Renault, Unilever and many others - both
large and small - use TRIZ to solve both short-term and
long-term problems, generate innovative solutions, develop
future solution strategies of their products and
Samsung Electronics named TRIZ "the best
practice of innovation" after the use of TRIZ resulted in
economic benefits of Euro 2 billion.
At Intel Corporation, TRIZ is recognized as "Innovation
Platform of the 21st century". General Electric
introduces TRIZ in its companies across the world to enhance
innovation and R&D.
Today, TRIZ has a proven track
record in every industry dealing with innovative technology
and engineering in the areas of manufacturing, innovative
product improvement and new product development.
Major benefits from using TRIZ are: rapid acceleration of
finding new innovative solutions, understanding innovation,
solving inventive problems on demand, enhancing
personal innovative thinking skills, turning innovation
chaos to a systematic and manageable process.
Based on over 50 years of scientific
studies, TRIZ helps to drastically improve innovation process
by offering tools and techniques for systematic situation
analysis, problem solving and new ideas development by combining
analytical approach, system thinking, knowledge bases of
invention patterns, and creativity. An overview of modern TRIZ
for Technology and Engineering you can find in our white
Innovation with TRIZ".
Main goal of this unique
intensive 80-hour hands-on course is to learn and master
skills with modern TRIZ and Systematic Innovation for
Technology and Engineering in order to increase creative and
innovative productivity and performance of organizations and
The course focuses on
learning how to use the TRIZ paradigm and its techniques for
identifying and solving problems arising in products and
technologies and generation of new ideas and solutions. The
course provides understanding of fundamentals of systematic
innovative thinking and techniques of systematic innovation
and puts them in practice.
The acquired skills help the
course participants to resolve conflicting demands in a
“win-win” way, maximize the use of resources, innovatively
improve systems and processes, and invent new products and
technologies. In addition to learning about philosophy, key
concepts, process, techniques and tools, the participants
acquire the basic practical skills of working with advanced
TRIZ and Systematic Innovation techniques during the course,
which help to extract root conflicts, resolve
contradictions, identify and model system relationships, and
apply the Trends of Technology Evolution to identify
evolutionary potential of business systems and propose new
The course contains different
examples to better understand the nature of TRIZ and its
thinking methodology and make it applicable to a large
variety of problems, products, and technologies. The course
introduces unique material developed by the author of the
course and not available yet from any other sources apart
from the parties with licenses from ICG T&C.
The course is
focused on practice. During the class, the participants will
work on real-life problems to gain realistic and practical
experience with applying TRIZ process and basic tools in
their everyday activities.
The course usually
hosts international audience and is conducted in English.
