That's the stimulus for this column: do you recognize TRIZ "situations" in your daily life? Here's a guide to recognizing TRIZ opportunities, and what to do about them. I wrote this for managers who had modest (sometimes no) TRIZ training, so they could encourage their employees to use TRIZ, but I've found lots of people who need this advice - - think of this as the new, empowered workforce, who get no help from supervisors!
So, listen for the "trigger phrases" (it doesn't matter if you say them to yourself, or if you hear other people say them), then have the "discussion" (same comment - - either talk to yourself or to the other person!)
