Inventive Problem Solving with TRIZ (Level 1)

About This Course

Innovation is an important skill much needed in the new economy. With competition becoming increasingly intense, innovation is no longer a “nice-to-have” skill, but a “must-have”. There is a way to learn INNOVATION in a systematic approach. This approach is known as TRIZ, or Theory of Inventive Problem Solving. TRIZ is a Russian methodology discovered about 66 years ago but has remained a well-kept secret. This open secret has finally reached you through the TRIZ Level 1 Workshop.

The Malaysia TRIZ Innovation Association (MyTRIZ), in partnership with the International TRIZ Association (MATRIZ), will facilitate a two-day workshop to cover the history of TRIZ, share the insight of the profound discovery, provide in-depth knowledge into six techniques, and impart the application aspects of the methodology. This workshop includes an assessment for certification as a TRIZ Level 1 Practitioner. TRIZ is a catalytic program for employees to upgrade the problem-solving and innovation skills to international certification standards.

TRIZ is recognised as one of the most powerful methods for innovation. It is embraced by many corporations, namely Siemens, Samsung, Intel, Whirlpool, LG, Christian Dior, Boeing, Procter & Gamble, L'Oreal, KIA, Hyundai, etc.
