TRIZ India Forum Ideal Final Result (IFR)

TRIZ India Forum is a group formed by few TRIZ enthusiastic s from different parts of India, believing a systematic and structured innovation process can help improving India's innovation capability.

So it is there Now! The TRIZ INDIA FORUM has been launched on 1st November 2007. How did it happen? Prakasan created the BLOG and it is now available for all of us to discuss TRIZ and Innovation from and for India. Why India? Why TRIZ only for Innovation?India because we believe India is the world's Innovation Tipping Point now. It is going to create multiple impacts in a decade or so and the Globe will looking at the Innovation Leadership from India, if it is not already looking at it. The simple reason why India works is the inherent complexity of India to absorb and respond to more complexity that the world is creating. India thrives in complexity and thats a fantastic situation to be in.However, India also has problems of being a constrained by many ills. The solutions lies in exploring Innovation systematically. It will only happen through a country wide initiative to take us to the stage where we define the new world that we want to inhabit.We believe that Theory of Inventive Problem Solving - the TRIZ or at least TRIZ Thinking is the vehicle to catapult India into future.We Invite all readers to join in this journey @ TRIZ INDIA FORUM.

Please drop us a mail at if you would like to be a part of this initiative..

Are we ready to do a TRIZ India Conference in India?

Innovation Ignition Workshops - TRIZ Based

CRAFITTI CONSULTING ( is offering two days of Innovation Ignition workshops on our world-class frameworks developed and practiced to solve business and technical problems in large global organizations. These comprehensive frameworks are being offered for the first time in India in workshop settings.

Workshop 1: Lean Inventive Systems Thinking – A Framework for transformationSeptember 26, 2008 Hotel Ramanashree, Richmond Road, Bangalore, India

Workshop 2: Advanced Patent Analysis using TRIZ and other conceptsSeptember 27, 2008 Hotel Ramanashree, Richmond Road, Bangalore, India Advanced Patent Analysis using TRIZ and Other Techniques

Patents are the most comprehensive source of information and knowledge. In the rapidly globalizing world of continuous change and cutthroat competition, every enterprise searches for competitive advantage. Patent information although realized by many as highly informative are not really tapped by enterprises at large, simply as the understanding of patents as a source of information and trigger for inventing the next are still in infancy. Although there are many open tools and databases to make patent data visualization, there doesn’t seem to be enough awareness of using patents for inventing next!

Altshuller, a Russian navy patent officer after Second World War, started a systematic study of patents – his aim was to find out what makes a successful invention. Can there be an algorithm for inventing? His search led him to develop a unique methodology called Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (acronym TRIZ in Russian). In the process he also developed a methodology to analyze and study patents. Crafitti Consulting has developed on the TRIZ way of doing patent analysis and reinforced it with other techniques to build a comprehensive framework for Patent analysis. For the first time this framework is offered in India. The delegates will be exposed to

  • Understanding the level of an invention and a patent
  • Finding out the key contradictions the invention is solving
  • Looking at the claims hierarchy of the patent
  • Function Diagrams of a patent/invention
  • Pruning or Trimming as a means of inventing
  • System Complexity Estimation

These techniques will help in

  • Finding Technological Alternatives to a Patent
  • Writing Future-proof claims of a Patent
  • Understanding the evolution of an invention compared to prior art
  • Finding white space in a field to leverage

Global TRIZ database - From Toru San

Toru San, our TRIZ colleague from Japan compiled this list of 100 global TRIZ (TRIZ100) online sites, and categorized geographically. After 7 years, we have an updated knowledge base on TRIZ. This list also put lights on the global proliferation of TRIZ thinking in a very short time.

View this list

This should be a one-stop-shop place for anyone to know more about TRIZ in their respective geo.

This is a humongous effort by Toru San and his team.

TRIZ in Google Trends

I have been playing around with google trends for last few days. Looking at TRIZ in Google Trends, following picture emerges

The sudden spike in 2006 is due to the business week article on TRIZ

Also looking at the regions from where TRIZ is being searched - gives a view of why it is more of an ASIAN phenomenon as of now...

Iran / South Korea /Taiwan / Viet Nam /India /Brazil /Japan/ Mexico /Thailand /Austria


Tehran, Iran /Seoul, South Korea /Bangalore, India /Curitiba, Brazil /Taipei, Taiwan / Monterrey, Mexico /Chiyoda, Japan /Mumbai, India /Tokyo, Japan /Osaka, Japan

TRIZ India Conference

I see the curiosity building here; many are talking about TRIZ now, and many are working on it, and also started publicizing themselves.. I'm confident that this is going to grow now.

As a TRIZnik, when I start searching around for the TRIZ development across the world, I see India is still lagging behind. Forget developed countries, small countries like Estonia, many Middle East countries, and several Asian countries, (Forget Korea and Taiwan, but there are countries like Vietnam and Thailand) all are racing ahead. A formal and established TRIZ collaborative forum is already in place and they do their own conference, meetings, seminar, discussing the scope of TRIZ in their context, building the Body of Knowledge etc... It is too sad to see that this is not happening in India. I still don't get why, but I believe this is the time, otherwise we will be left behind.

I would like everyone out there to think about doing something. I propose we do a TRIZ India Conference to start with, bring all interested and curious people around here and discuss what we need to do and work together.

TRIZ may bring innovations, but we can't keep it ourselves about the innovative solutions as a competitive edge of my/our company.. The world is changing, the new world is collaborative world, and that's what would bring next innovation..

We have a poll above, do post your thoughts.
