In the recent years, many businesses have learned that introducing technological innovations to improve their business performance might not be enough to keep ahead of the competition. Often, only when coupled with innovating the ways in which business is done, technological means can let organizations to successfully capture new and expand their existing market shares and ensure sustainability of maintaining competitive edge and market leadership.
In our century, attempts to innovate in both technology and business in the old-fashioned way by using random and unorganized methods based on trials and errors may lead to fatal results. It is why many businesses started to look for and adopt systematic, knowledge-based methods to organize, manage and support innovation processes to drastically increase performance and quality of their innovation activities.
As a solution, many of these businesses use TRIZ: a groundbreaking methodology of supporting front-end of innovation created and developed by engineers and scientists who extracted the basic principles and patterns of inventive solutions. TRIZ resulted from a long-term study of a massive number or technology innovations which led to the emergence of tools supporting various phases of innovation. Modern TRIZ suggests a framework which turns innovation to a manageable and predictable process. Today TRIZ is recognized as an innovation platform by many world-leading corporations, including General Electric, Hyundai, Intel, Samsung, Siemens, and so forth.
“Business TRIZ” is a title given to a branch of TRIZ which deals with innovation in business and management rather than in technology and engineering. Although different in practical applications, original TRIZ and Business TRIZ share the same fundamental principles which help with understanding innovation and making it systematic and continuous.
