A proven way of differentiating a product or a process is by patenting the concept/solution. There are few methods that can help in this pursuit… a proven systematic approach and many unstructured approaches (person dependent).

TRIZ, a Russian acronym for “Theory of Solving Inventive Problems” developed by Genrich Altshuller, a Russian inventor, addressed above critical challenges. Altshuller developed a systematic approach, once understood and followed will empower toolkit for everyone to invent. Corporates like Samsung, General Electric, Proctor & Gamble, Intel, Hyundai, Samsung, Louis Vitton, to name a few, have adopted this structured Innovation methodology in technology development and addressed above critical challenges with success.

Countries like South Korea, Poland and Columbia are promoting SME's to adopt TRIZ and enabling them to “export ready” with a differentiated product protected by patent(s) and compete globally.
