ARIZ is the most powerful, but at the same time is the most complex of all TRIZ problem solving tools. Being a mandatory part of Level 3 and Level 4 of MATRIZ certification it is often a challenge for many applicants.

The workshop focuses on the internal ARIZ logic that allows to go through ARIZ cross-checks and to avoid the usual mistakes. The logic was taught by G.Altshuller, but has never been published in public domain.

The workshop will be very useful for both Level 2 and Level 3 certified people as well as those who want to avoid the ARIZ mistakes in their Level 4 application package.

On completion the workshop the participants will get MATRIZ certificates of completion.
