The TRIZ Group Difference

Training
Since our inception, and through our experience with some of the world’s largest and most sophisticated clients, we’ve trained hundreds of managers, engineers and scientists, and guided them through the TRIZ concept development process, often culminating in radical innovations. We have also trained and certified a number of TRIZ specialists who now successfully practice the methodology as in-house champions.

Results
Our solution generation capabilities, coupled with the most comprehensive training available, have proven to be the best and most effective means of transferring the TRIZ methodology to technology-based companies. These capabilities have enriched our clients, providing quick returns on investment while containing costs and reducing risk. But don’t simply take our word for it –
see what our clients have said.

World Class Expertise
We offer more than three decades of TRIZ development and application experience. Collectively, our Principals have published over 200 texts that include books and papers on TRIZ, innovation and engineering, and have authored over 70 patents, many of which have been implemented worldwide by our clients.

The TRIZ Group also maintains access to a global network of top subject matter experts in various fields of applied science and technology, who help us develop effective and cost-conscious solutions to our clients’ toughest challenges.

Why does any of this matter to you?
Our clients repeatedly tell us that our unique approach in helping them overcome their toughest technology challenges is the rock buster they’ve long searched for. As the stages of product and process development compress, and constantly shifting economic conditions dictate, companies must innovate or perish. The TRIZ Group is the only TRIZ service provider that offers you the unique combination of essential elements necessary for the successful deployment of this methodology, with the singular purpose of securing your competitive superiority.
