Dear colleagues and friends!

For many years, it has been our tradition to pay homage to Mr. Genrikh Altshuller, the founder of TRIZ, who was born on October 15, 1926. It is my honor and privilege to congratulate you with the International TRIZ Day once again!

Today is the first time over the past few years that I am greeting you on behalf of a new TRIZ association, MATRIZ Official,  which was established last September by many prominent TRIZ experts (including a number of Altshuller’s students).

Our goal is to give a new impetus to and lead proliferation of TRIZ in the world, and our efforts concentrate on the following:

  • Preserving the legacy of Mr. Genrikh Altshuller
  • Disseminating TRIZ tools and knowledge worldwide
  • Improving TRIZ-based individual creative and critical thinking skills
  • Providing a world-class five-level certification for TRIZ practitioners

Although MATRIZ Official was registered in Brussel, Belgium just a month ago, numerous colleagues from around the globe have already welcomed and joined our association. We greatly appreciate their enthusiastic support.

You, my friends and colleagues, have done a lot of excellent work already. We have a lot of exciting and important tasks ahead of us.

If you haven't joined MATRIZ Official yet, now is the time to do so. If you are a member, invite others to join, so together we will boost the pursuit of excellence and relevance in the frontier areas of TRIZ expansion. 

Happy International TRIZ Day! I wish you every success with applying and enjoying TRIZ!

Oleg Feygenson, PhD, TRIZ Master
