Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ)

TRIZ is a powerful methodology for enhancing innovation and creativity, solving practical problems and building new technologies for large and small corporate environments. TRIZ helps organizations to generate more solutions of higher quality in less time. It also improves the scope and strength of the intellectual property.

Theory of Inventive Problem Solving(TRIZ)

Course Objective

  • How psychological inertia can affect problem solving and innovation.
  • Create a function model of a system to identify contradictions and resolve them.
  • Identify and define problems in terms of contradictions.
  • Successfully solve problems using the Contradiction Matrix Theory, Separation Principles, and the System Approach.
  • Eliminate rather than live with contradictions
  • How to use key TRIZ concepts including:

Zones of Conflict – Contradictions and Tradeoffs – Functional Analysis-System Constraints – The Ideal Final Result & Ideality – Utilisation of Invisible and Idle Resources.

Who Should Attend

Benefits of Attending

TRIZ includes a practical methodology, tool sets, a knowledge base, and model-based technology for generating innovative solutions for problem-solving.


TRIZ presents a systematic approach for understanding and defining challenging problems: difficult problems require an inventive solution, and TRIZ provides a range of strategies and tools for finding these inventive solutions

The central purpose of TRIZ-based analysis is to systematically apply the strategies and tools to find superior solutions that overcome the need for a compromise or trade-off between the two elements

The three primary objectives:

1. Problems and solutions are repeated across industries and sciences. By classifying the “contradictions” (see later) in each problem, you can predict good creative solutions to that problem.

2. Patterns of technical evolution tend to be repeated across industries and sciences.

3. Creative innovations often use scientific effects outside the field where they were developed.
