Innovation courses

TROYKA INNOVATION offers a 3 day comprehensive course “Inventive problem solving using TRIZ”. This course covers all the tools of TRIZ.
After graduating from the course, the participants will be able to apply TRIZ techniques to their own work and real life problems.

TROYKA has developed two books specifically for this course.

TROYKA TRIZ instruction manual

This manual contains 26 tools that together comprise TRIZ. Each tool is presented in an easy-to-apply format. For each tool an example is included. With this manual, course graduates can perform TRIZ on real life problems.

TROYKA TRIZ 40 Inventive Principles book
Inventive principles are generic solutions to resolve technical contradictions. The TRIZ method recognizes 40 Inventive Principles, such as “Prior action”, “Rushing through”, “Phase transition” and so on. These principles are often perceived as abstract. To overcome this barrier with course participants, this book gives real life implementations of Inventive Principles in 370 illustrations.

Included in the course material are these 2 books, and a binder with TRIZ excerises and solutions

The course is suitable for a wide audience.

Testimonials from course graduates:

This course is remarkably complete with emphasis on technical innovation. In addition there was a lot of attention to the mental aspects of getting to results, and much room for practicing TRIZ during the course. I feel I have gained valuable experience.

The combination of instruction and extensive practicing was excellent for knowledge transfer.


The Troyka TRIZ course is not just for inventors, it has much wider application.

With TRIZ you learn how to escape from entrenched ideas and patterns, thereby getting to the core of the problem in a remarkably out-of-the box manner. This creates unexpected new possibilities.

This course offers the possibility to analyse any idea, modify it and improve it.

This applies both to tangible physical inventions, as well as spiritual inventions. TRIZ allows you to consider a problem in a structured way, and gives the tools to come to an inventive solution. More people should follow the Troyka TRIZ course!


This method gives you a full toolbox for structured brainstorming. This allows people with different backgrounds to produce a large number of ideas. It is a constructive way to cooperate at different levels.
