Preface to an English edition
Today, as in the past, the quest for fresh ideas often seems to follow the pattern "quantity, not quality". This, however, is no good when high-grade solutions are strived for. In difficult cases the problem situation always goes hand in hand with contradictions that seem impossible to solve: something must be hot and cold at the same time, open but also closed, present being absent. In this case, the common compromise-oriented approaches do not suffice anymore: hot and cold must on no account make lukewarm! Traditional methods like brainstorming, semantic intuition, visual confrontation or synectics are not capable of offering solutions to suchlike problem situations. The common quest for compromise must apparently be substituted by the target-oriented development of high-grade solutions. Instead of allowing for a batch of second- and third-class suggestions, one should aim at developing only a small but high-grade variety of solutions to a problem. At present, such unusual requirements are solely met by the TRIZ method. TRIZ is a Russian acronym of "Teorija Reshenija Izobretat'elskich Zadacz". In English, the according acronym TIPS generates from "Theory of Inventive Problem Solving". Already in the 1940s, the ingenious G.S. Altshuller created the basics of TRIZ and developed it further. After 1985, his students took responsibility for his work. While TRIZ was originally designed a problem solving method for the subject area of inventions, it is today also successfully applied in non-technical areas like in the marketing or management sector.
The book at hand is the work of a practical inventor. It presents the authors own methodical development as well as the technical realization of the method in a broader sense, both of which have not been much considered in the English language area to date. TRIZ is primarily explained as a universal line of reasoning applicable not only in the technical sector but in various non-technical realms. Once having gained access to the methodical pattern, interested readers from any kind of professional background may start his or her creative work right away.
With the best wishes from the author for pleasure in working, luck and success! Dietmar Zobel
