Business process with TRIZ help

TRIZ in the problem solving process

TRIZ – Theory of inventive problem solving – is the strongest to date system for creating new ideas and inventions. It is widely known and used in many countries: In USA, UK, Germany, Sweden, France, Japan, Spain, Canada etc.

Most of leading companies are actively using that methodology for improving their goods and services. Among those companies are Samsung Electronics, Intel, LG Electronics Inc., Lucent Technologies, Xerox, Boeing, Siemens etc.

With the help of TRIZ You can learn how: to create the inventions, to solve the tasks so complicated that they are considered intractable by the other people, to eliminate technical contradictions, to predict the development of the technologies.

TRIZ programs

TRIZ. The optimization of business processes

Nowadays, business must become innovative. Today, all businesses have the compulsive need to increase efficiency while reducing costs and effort.

If a large company can afford the high cost of certain projects, the small entrepreneur (especially at the start) is forced to rely on his own knowledge, creativity and entrepreneurship. No idea - no business.

Therefore, in order to attain success on the market, the entrepreneur has to get the technology to create new solutions, including the technology to create inventions and obtain the appropriate knowledge and skills for inventive problem solving.

That is why TRIZ is actively and widely used to optimize business processes. The knowledge and application of TRIZ provides a strong competitive advantage for any company.
