economic crisis, these two years were filled with travel and all kinds of projects and activities in
different countries barely leaving spare time for any other things. It is also a good news that TRIZ has not just survived the crisis but expanded and strengthened further: 2010 was featured by launching TRIZ conferences in India, Israel, Korea, Taiwan.
And indeed, one more major event of the year is a forthcoming Global ETRIA “TRIZ Future” Conference in Bergamo, Italy which will be held on November 3-5, 2010. This year we added a format of a short paper, allowing a broader audience to present their results and share their ideas.
This year more than 50 presentations are scheduled during the conference. I will present a talk “TRIZ and Systematic Business Model Innovation” at the first conference day, November 3. I hope to see you at the conference! At ICG T&C together with our colleagues and customers we also have been working on improving and extending xTRIZ package. In addition to the developed earlier Root Conflict Analysis (RCA+) we introduced two new tools: Value-Conflict Mapping (VCM) to identify contradiction trees as a part of analysis of complex technical and business systems, and Multi-Screen Analysis (MSA) based on a classical 9-screen TRIZ approach to explore a development potential of technical, business as well as social systems. A link to the article on VCM you will find below in this newsletter.
In addition, during last two years we expanded our training activities by establishing a global network of accredited ICG T&C trainers in different regions of the world. In total, we trained and certified about 700 people in TRIZ and xTRIZ during 2 years, either in basic or advanced programs. There is still a chance to participate in our professional TRIZ training courses by me which will be conducted in October-December of 2010 in the Netherlands. Please have a look on the next page to find a schedule.
We also intend to introduce a modular remote training next year. If anyone is interested, please let me know. In this newsletter you will find information about our new book release, experience with running the TRIZ course at the University of Twente, our developments in Jordan, references to new articles from ICG T&C, and some other interesting links, not only about TRIZ but about innovation in general.
