Plannable Innovation? – Methodical Creativity?
If brainstorming is no longer enough for you as a method for solving your technical problems, or if you no longer want to simply wait until you or one of your engineers finally come up with an ingenious idea in the shower, then the “Theory of Inventive Problem Solving” – TRIZ for short – can offer you real help.
Dr. Robert Adunka – Your competent TRIZ trainer
Dr. Robert Adunka studied mechanical engineering at FAU Erlangen, earned his doctorate in the field of design engineering and was a lecturer for innovation methods. As a developer at Siemens AG, he specialized in the area of methodical product development. In 2014, he became the first German-speaking TRIZ Master and was for a long time MATRIZ’s Vice President for Europe. Dr. Adunka is managing director of TRIZ Consulting Group GmbH, co-author of 124 granted patents and has published numerous papers on TRIZ. The accredited TRIZ teacher for levels 1 to 3 teaches his experience from over ten years of intensive involvement with the method in a clearly structured, practice-oriented manner and with innovative learning concepts.
Our current course & training offerings at a glance:
TRIZ Level 1 Online-Face-to-Face-Course: March 2022
Exam: 11. March, 14:00-16:00 (CET, UTC+1, GMT+1)
You become three times more creative with technical problems and can systematically generate innovations.
By teaching you the basics of the “Theory of Inventive Problem Solving” in five half days, step-by-step, you will be able to use the strategies and thinking patterns of the best inventors, and you will never again be helpless in the face of technical problems in your projects, and thus be perceived as a creative innovator by your colleagues and superiors.
TRIZ Level 2 In-house-Course
We invite you to experience TRIZ actively, intensively and with practical relevance within five days.
The MATRIZ Level 2 Intensive Training focuses on intensive work on the TRIZ tools Substance-Field-Analysis and S-Curve-Analysis.
TRIZ Level 3 In-house-Course
Many companies like Samsung, Intel, GE or Siemens use this certification system. In order to keep this course exclusive and to have as much time as possible to discuss problems, the number of participants is limited.
Please note that only participants who hold the TRIZ Level 2 certificate according to the international standard of MATRIZ will be admitted to the course.
Individual TRIZ training for your company
Many companies primarily want to carry out their own internal projects, which is not possible with the open training. This is because employees of a competitor can also participate there.
An open exchange about real problems is therefore not possible there. With in-house training, on the other hand, you can address and work on the technical problems. You immediately see how TRIZ can be applied to your problems. An optimal transfer from theory to practice is thus guaranteed.
You are still unsure whether the TRIZ method is something for you?

TRIZ is the Russian acronym for the “Theory of Inventive Problem Solving”. Behind this abbreviation lies an extensive toolbox of methods with a growing collection of different working methods for successful creative and innovative idea generation.
Modern TRIZ has long since been applied not only in mechanical engineering and for patent generation, for which it was originally developed: The analysis of thought patterns for the optimization of development processes and the targeted questioning of product characteristics that were previously considered irrefutable are increasingly finding their way into the fields of electronics, electromechanics, process and production engineering, software architectures and even business administration. With the help of TRIZ, barriers to thinking can be broken down, development processes can be refined, and products or ideas can be systematically worked on from the very beginning. This makes innovation plannable: methodical creativity allows the structured continuation of processes, the development of new (technical) procedures or even the avoidance of patents. By breaking down processes into reference systems and systematically transferring properties, unusual new applications can be developed. Often the right way of formulating questions helps to show innovative solutions. TRIZ offers a wide range of support for this through various analysis tools or effect databases.
TRIZ – Methodical Creativity
At TRIZ-Consulting, experienced trainers support you in classroom courses or via e-learning to reach different TRIZ levels. You will learn the methods of classic and modern TRIZ and practice their practical implementation in systematic problem solving. We are happy to supervise your employees in individual coaching sessions and support you in optimizing development processes, developing systematic innovations with the help of guided brainstorming and creativity techniques, or solving technical problems of all kinds. Our workshops on specific topics and problems such as finding new products, avoiding patent protection or defining new product generations will help your team to generate ideas systematically and to develop efficient procedures for evaluating the steps taken to find ideas or the approach to product development. In a protected setting, we give you and your team the opportunity to make the most of your creative potential and discover undreamt-of innovation opportunities.
