TRIZ Supercharges Brainstorming
Do you have a design problem and you think the design problem is unique? Do you have a design problem you’re trying to overcome? TRIZ is the brainchild of Genrich Altshuller, a Russian engineer and patent investigator for the Soviet Navy in 1946. Above all he determined the construction of 40,000 patents.
