TRIZ knowledge reaching out in all fronts

Kids learn in many ways – when teaching a child, it is best to utilize various learning techniques to help them achieve their learning goals.  In learning TRIZ, similar techniques were taken but the first step in learning begins with the classical way. 

A formal approach was adopted to ensure that the content shared was consistent, provided an in-depth knowledge exchange and laid a solid foundation for the learning of TRIZ subject. Ten TRIZ Level 1 workshops were conducted for 313 participants from university and industry in September to December 2013.

Besides the TRIZ Level 1 workshops, two TRIZ Level 2 workshops were conducted for 36 participants and one TRIZ Level 1 instructor workshop was conducted to certify 29 participants. As part of the MyTRIZ strategy to scale the learning platform, the efforts throughout 2013 brought the number of TRIZ practitioners in Malaysia to 3,634. 

TRIZ is fast gaining popularity in Malaysia.  Interest in TRIZ has spread from academicians to industry members. Sharing the knowledge with industry takes on a different challenge. There is a greater demand to show evidence of success stories from the use of TRIZ - not just the successes from abroad but local cases. Guess it is not easy to be the leader and take risks.  Most companies are cautious about adopting new methods.

To convince the industry partners, MyTRIZ introduced ten complimentary consulting projects back in May 2013. It was designed to allow the industry members to see how TRIZ can be a powerful and useful tool.  To our surprise, the program was oversubscribed. Thirty six projects were identified and worked on by seven companies with more in the pipeline.  The seven pioneers were Agilent, B. Braun, Carsem, Pen Apparel, Jabatan Kerja Raya Malaysia, PenChem and Proton.  

With the momentum gained at the university and industry level, the TRIZ community is now driven to share the TRIZ knowledge with younger talent pool.  After receiving several requests to teach TRIZ at schools, MyTRIZ partnered with Education for a New Era to enable Mr. Anatoly Guin and Dr. Mark Barkan to conduct six workshops at four locations over 21 days. 

253 participants had the opportunity to learn the concept of Open Problems through the School for Creative Thinkers Workshop at Melaka, Cyberjaya, Kuching and Penang. The workshops and concepts were very well received.

Seventy one teams submitted their entries for the MyTRIZ Competition.  Eight teams made it to the Finals on 29 November 2013 organized at Golden Sands Resort, Penang. Five judges, namely Dr. Mark Barkan, Mr. Anatoly Guin, Mr. Tito Vemuri, Mr. Tanasak Phenghua and Dr. TS Yeoh had a challenging time determining the top three teams. 

Team TRIZ University from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia which was represented by Mr Zulhasni Abdul Rahim and Prof. Dr. Nooh Bakar emerged champion to win the grand prize of RM 8,000.  The MyTRIZ Competition 2013 marked the expansion of TRIZ to regional level. 

2013 has been another great year for MyTRIZ. We were able to expand the community and start new initiatives. It has brought together many amazing people.  We look forward to chart the next course and reach another level of success.  Thank you for all the wonderful support.
