  • About this book

  • Second edition of the successful and practical introduction to TRIZ
  • Written for self-study, the book provides the reader in the most vivid and systematic manner with the key ideas, techniques, and paradigms of the complex TRIZ method
A secure future has to be the goal and motivation of every attempt at progress and of all politics. Engineers, teachers, and scientists can assume a part of their personal responsibility in such attempts. We should all search for organizational and technical possibilities individually and with our fellow professionals that can help avoid technogenic - and therefore - sociogenic catastrophes. When we consider the extremely short time for inventions and the practical ap­ plication of essential ideas, it is not enough to rely on the methods for finding new ideas that our wonderful, yet so imperfect civilization has created. Perhaps this civilization is sometimes so deficient because the methods that have shaped it are imperfect. Who controls the development of humanity? Can we really make a reliable prognosis about our best way into the future? How can sociogenic, geogenic, and cosmic catastrophes be avoided? How can we insure the progress and security of coming generations? TRIZ teaches us how to make inventions! TRIZ teaches us how to construct the future! TRIZ changes your thinking, i.e., all of civilization, too! Rational decisions about the problems above cannot be made today without the use ofTRIZ.
