TRIZ Associate

Virtual TRIZ Associate Training Program for Individuals (Multi-session)
TRIZ Associate Training Program for Individuals (Virtual multi-session training in ten, 3 hour sessions)

Our robust virtual Workshop will give participants an excellent grasp of the foundational TRIZ methods and will prepare participants for the Associate Certification exam from the Altshuller Institute (Est in 1998). Technical Innovation Center wishes to teach you problem-solving and innovative techniques to enhance your capacities to perform at a higher level and become a more valuable contributor to yourself, team, and employer. Other TRIZ workshops are taught in 3–5 day data dumps. Trying to learn a comprehensive toolset crammed into a short time is not how most participants effectively internalize new material. Our training is close to one-on-one training, a tremendous value for individuals who are serious about learning a powerful innovation tool. An extended training approach gives attendees more time to assimilate new knowledge and work on exercises between sessions to re-enforce learning. Each training session will last about 3 hours, followed by exercises to support the lesson. There are over 40 hours of training and exercises to cover the material plus assignments. Our goal is to make our attendees competent and confident in using the material offered in this Workshop. Sessions are flexible and can be individually scheduled for the mutual convenience of the participant and the instructor. Sessions can be schedule for one or two sessions per week. “Once you learn TRIZ, you will never see the world in the same way”

“Very good interaction between class members and instructor. Discussion and reflection is required to settle the materail and the concepts.” Poulsen, Innovation Manager, GEA, Denmark (2015)

“Provided an excellent opportunity to learn about TRIZ. The content was rich – both broadly applied and in-depth. The format was engaing with great discussion to help bridge the theory and the practice.” Pierce, Program Director, Oregon University of Technology, USA (2015)

 “Training was relevant to helping engineers improve their ability to problem-solve. I also found many of the underlying lessons infromative for my own unique type of innovation, where I am innovating with new types of knowledge rather than new patents. I found the idea of actively searching for and resolving contradictions of systems to be an applicable to innovating in other non-technical systems”. Cromwell, Harvard Businee School, Doctoral Student (2015)

“Great interactivity–rarely felt like a lecture. Examples we did were excellent at Illustrating the benfits of TRIZ”. Pinc, Research Scientist, Owens-Illinois (2015)
