Individually tailored TRIZ workshops
How do TRIZ workshops work?
TRIZ workshops are classically conducted in a one- to two-day format. Meanwhile, the trainers of the TRIZ Consulting Group have conducted over 200 workshops. We are happy to support you in preparing and conducting a workshop.
For the workshops, depending on your goal and the result you want to achieve with the workshop, we select tools from the method kit in consultation with you. To give you an idea of the possibilities, the most common workshop concepts are briefly explained here:
An overview of the most important TRIZ workshops:
Workshop for finding a new product generation (Innovation on Demand)
Usually, this type of workshop uses light methods for creative ideation, such as the random word method or the provocation method. From the TRIZ method toolbox, we like to use the concept of ideality and 9-field thinking here to provoke innovation.
Workshops to Generate Invention Disclosures (Patents on Demand)
Here, too, the random word method can be used to good effect. From the TRIZ toolbox, the methods for solving engineering problems, such as the 40 inventive principles, are already partly used here.
Workshop to solve an engineering problem (Solution on Demand)
Project managers are often the clients of this type of workshop. In this task, the entire TRIZ toolbox can be used very well. Here the exact engineering problem, decides which of the tools is best suited.
Workshop on Finding Ratio Potential
Typically, for a product that has not been revised for more than three years, a ratio of 10% and more can be expected. We like to work here with the functional analysis (value-analytical consideration) according to TRIZ and ratio checklists.
Workshop on Circumventing a Competitors Patent
In a further step, possible questions are worked out, the answers to which are very likely to allow evasion of the opponent’s patent. In this type of TRIZ workshop, we like to involve a patent attorney for better assessment of the probability of infringement of the competitor’s patent. For this purpose, we cooperate with the appropriate partners.
