The Systemic Innovation Special Interest Group (SISIG) of the IEEE UK & Ireland presented this webinar on a major systematic innovation methodology; TRIZ, Theory of Inventive Problem Solving.
TRIZ has been developed between 1946 – 1985 by Genrich Altshuller, a Russian scientist and engineer, through systematic analysis of Patents and mapping their innovative ideas and steps. This presentation covers an authoritative review of TRIZ, providing more details about the tools and techniques that can be utilised by engineers and scientists alike. The program also covers the benefits of learning TRIZ and explains its application in creative problem solving.
