About the Session

TRIZ is a Russian acronym for ‘Teoriya Resheniya Izobretatelskikh Zadatch’ that is known in English as the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving. It is a problem-solving, analysis, and forecasting tool derived from the study of patterns of invention in the global patent literature.

TRIZ was devised by the Soviet inventor Genrich Altshuller and his colleagues in 1946, and can be viewed as a way of Lateral Thinking. It has the following premises at its bedrock:

  • The given problem (or a similar one) has already been solved by someone someday
  • Never accept contradictions, but resolve them
  • Use the inherent defect as a resource to find the solution

Sara has founded a TRIZ-based primary school for the first time in Iran. During this seminar, Sara will talk about how TRIZ can improve problem-solving skills in primary school students based on her real experience.
