WHY TRIZ AND SYSTEMATIC INNOVATION?
In the recent past, ability
to create new breakthrough and feasible innovative ideas that
would create value was considered as a
gift. As a result innovation was difficult or even not possible to manage.
These days the situation has been changing. A major impact on redefining
innovation has been produced by TRIZ, a practical and systematic
methodology of supporting the innovation front-end which
quickly gained reputation as the best practice of innovation at
a number of world-leading corporations.
and tools of TRIZ and Systematic Innovation organize and support a process
from dealing with ill-defined initial situations towards
producing and selecting new ideas with the highest value/costs
ratio thus making dealing with an innovation "fuzzy front-end"
manageable and predictable. Selection of the TRIZ tools and
techniques depends on a particular task: either we want to solve
a specific problem but we do not know how to do it, or we would
like to innovatively improve an existing technical, business or
social system, or we target discovering opportunities to create new
technologies, products and services.
A process with TRIZ
Recently enriched with a number of
such as Root Conflict
Analysis, Function Analysis, Technology-Market Evolution Matrix,
Value-Conflict Mapping, and Innovation Roadmap TRIZ makes it possible to
establish a well-structured process of achieving continuous innovation
and developing breakthrough ideas for new products, technologies and
services in a systematic way. Added with tools to plan,
manage, control and perform innovative processes, TRIZ becomes a
key element of modern innovation systems deployed at many organizations across the world
which enjoy innovative leadership.
Tasks supported by modern TRIZ
Today, innovation becomes a well-planned activity which
integrates a wide range of methods, tools, as well as
organizational culture, management support, and other crucial
ingredients. Such a system becomes available to everyone
involved to innovation processes thus immensely increasing the
innovative productivity of organizations and individuals.
Possessing 15-20 years of practical
experience with TRIZ and Systematic Innovation, trainers and experts
from our network help different organizations and individuals to
reinforce their innovative potential through all levels of training
in TRIZ and Systematic Innovation and
by assisting innovative problem solving and development of new generations of products,
services, and technologies.
We also contribute to development and
promotion of TRIZ and Systematic Innovation, co-founded the
European TRIZ Association (ETRIA) and participate in the
International TRIZ Association (MATRIZ).
To help achieving the highest productivity of innovation, we
introduced Strategic Technology and Business
Innovation Program, which transforms innovation from a
non-controllable to a predictable process based on a systematic
approach. The program integrates training, project facilitation,
coaching, and management consulting to achieve both short and
long-term results from realizing most of the innovative
potential. With several strategic customers and business
partners we continuously improve and update the program.
