The Ideal Final Result introduces the TRIZ Inventive Problem Solving Process in a way that allows readers to make immediate use of its most basic concepts. The Ideal Final Result reviews the basics of this left brained, but at the same time, very creative process for problem solving that uses a basic algorithm developed through the study of millions of patents. As opposed to psychologically based tools relying on the generation of hundreds of ideas to be sorted through to find the few of value, TRIZ rigorously defines the problem and assists the problem owner in identifying the existing inventive principles that are already known to solve that class of problems. This book reviews the most basic of the TRIZ algorithm tools and provides templates for readers to use in analyzing their difficult problems and provides a mental framework for their solution. It also describes TRIZ techniques for basic strategic planning in a business sense.
Steers a middle course between those TRIZ books that are too mathematical and theoretical, and those that are too simplistic
Suited not only for engineers but also for business users
Focuses on the logical, mental part of TRIZ vs. software, algorithms, and formulas Introductory material on patterns of invention and innovation vs. optimization
Use of TRIZ in strategic thinking
