Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ)

Dates: 24 - 26 March 2015

This programme aims at enhancing the participant’s creative thinking ability and thereby enhancing his/her ability to realize innovations. It starts with a review of how our mind works and how our behaviors are shaped. This forms the basis of self-awareness and prepares the participant to creative thinking and problem solving. Different methods of thinking, idea generation, and problem solving are then introduced including TRIZ and special methodologies developed in NUS such as State Analysis and Particles Maneuver. Participants will learn by doing! Case studies (e.g., “breakthroughs”) and exercises are used throughout to demonstrate concepts in practice, and internalize creative & innovative mindsets.
