With deepest regret we inform that our great friend and business partner, Nikolai Khomenko passed away on March 27, 2011. He was a true TRIZ and Innovation leader, he started new TRIZ tools, he created OTSM-TRIZ, and he trained thousands of people in TRIZ. We truly believe that his intellectual heritage will be undoubtedly used to create new innovation frontiers.
