Editor's Note (Toru Nakagawa, Nov. 22, 2016)

An excellent introductory article by Valeri Souchkov is translated into Japanese and is posted in the Japanese page  of this "TRIZ Home Page in Japan".  I am grateful to Dr. Souchkov for his permission of my present posting and also for his decades long activities of introducing TRIZ over the world in the modernized form including the business applications.

The present article introduces TRIZ and its use for business and management to the ordinary business people in plain words without any prerequisite.   He puts stress on the way of thinking rather than tools.  His way of using TRIZ for business and management has been proven to be easy to learn and effective to apply.
