TRIZ was developed in the former Soviet Union by G. Altshuller. TRIZ is a powerful and well used tool for generating new ideas for solving technical problems in quality improvement (QI). This study attempts to modify the TRIZ methodology and extend it to a broader application, namely resolving problems concerning the management of quality improvement. This study comprises three stages: 1. investigating and analyzing the requirements of QI; 2. using TRIZ tools to analyze and resolve QI problems; 3. building an action plan for achieving resolution.
