The Tic-Tac-Toe of Strategic Planning with TRIZ

AIChE Webinar
Originally delivered Jun 16, 2010

TRIZ (Inventive Problem Solving) is traditionally thought of as an engineering problem solving tool. However, the study of breakthrough inventions has also allowed the study of technology evolution, which can be used in a strategic way as well. The study of millions of inventions and patents has shown there are not only predictable ways to solve problems, but also patterns and lines of evolution that predict the evolution of products and systems. These lines and patterns provide the same structure for planning and intellectual property that the original TRIZ problem solving principles provided for problem solving.

This webinar demonstrates several of these lines of evolution and shows how using them in a simple 9-Box structure can provide insights into competitive activities, strategic planning, and technology forecasting. No previous knowledge of TRIZ is necessary to gain value from this webinar; all who attend will benefit.
