“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)
