Solving complex problems and developing innovative solutions are central in every organisation today. In trying to solve complex problems and develop innovative ideas, we often come up against one or more problems, frequently involving a contradiction or a dilemma. To reach a solution, we need to take a structured approach to consider the problem in depth and then work systematically to consider different options.
TRIZ is one approach used to tackle complex problems and open the door to possible solutions. It’s a method used by leading companies to solve complex problems and develop novel products. TRIZ was developed 70 years ago, when researchers identified patterns in the way new inventions came about, realising that the majority of inventions were based on a small number of solution principles.
This microcredential is an ideal way to immerse yourself in this novel way of problem solving. It will change the way you approach issues in life - wherever you are, whatever you are doing. It will strengthen your problem-solving skills, allowing you to systematically analyse your problem and create innovative solution ideas.
This microcredential has been designed to equip participants to:

The content of this microcredential is structured into three modules:
Module 1 - Systemically innovate your problems
Module 2 - Understand your problem in depth
Module 3 - Identify and solve contradictions
Assignments with practical exercises will help participants gauge their progress through the course and provide timely feedback on their TRIZ competency. By focusing on solving practical tasks, the assessments are geared to evaluate skills and subject-related problem-solving competencies rather than just recall of theoretical knowledge. The exercises scaffold to an individual problem-based assessment.
The final microcredential mark comes from a combination of two assignments.
Assignment 1 - TRIZ Exercises (individually marked - 35% of total grade)
Assignment 2 - TRIZ Design Project (individually marked: 65% of total grade)
