I've seen a number of organizations waste their TRIZ training, by waiting for an "important" problem. Most educators agree that if you don't use new learning within 2 weeks, you lose 80% of it! So, when you learn something new, you should use it as often as possible on a wide range of applications. Vacation is no excuse--you'll see plenty of problems to solve, or you'll see examples of how other people have solved their problems. Collect them, analyze them, use them, and your own capability will increase.
Share your examples with others through comments on this column, or through the TRIZ Journal commentary column or forum column, or write an article--we're always looking for new authors.
