Inventive Problem Solving TRIZ

Course Overview

TRIZ is the acronym for the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TIPS), which depends on the study of world patent database made by Russian inventor, Genrich Altshuller, along with his team. Altshuller discovered it, by focusing his research on most critical inventions (where the solution was not evident and required no trade-offs), that inventors from completely different backgrounds and geographical locations were applying the same strategies in solving the problems. By studying these strategies and developing the methods to help in their application, the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving was created.
