Getting the best results with TRIZ
Understanding the most effective TRIZ methods
In this chapter you’ll find simple hints and tips to get you started using TRIZ effectively and making TRIZ innovation a new habit. TRIZ has enormous rigour and depth, and sometimes people can feel a bit intimidated when they first encounter it … they don’t know where to start putting it into practice. What follows are some recommendations based on my experience as a teacher and facilitator. And, of course, as someone who learned TRIZ herself (many moons ago)!
You need to become familiar with the TRIZ tools before you can use them. Get to know the 40 Inventive Principles, the Standard Solutions, Trends and so on and make an effort to find new examples of these TRIZ tools put into practice.
