Q. This technique is a systematic approach for analyzing challenging problems and provides a range of strategies and tools for finding inventive solutions to overcome them? v

A. TRIZ presents a systematic approach for analysing the kind of challenging problems where inventiveness is needed and provides a range of strategies and tools for finding inventive solutions. This theory is based on research findings  that the vast majority of problems that require inventive solutions typically reflect a need to overcome a dilemma or a trade-off between two contradictory elements. The central purpose of TRIZ-based analysis is to systematically apply the strategies and tools to find superior solutions that overcome the need for a compromise or trade-off between the two elements. It was developed by the Soviet inventor and science fiction author Genrich Altshuller and his colleagues, beginning in 1946.
