Some issues of The TRIZ Journal have unexpected themes. This month we have two: 1) offices and 2) conference papers that needed to reach broader audiences. If you are trying to get to your office, work with your co-workers or, in particular, work with a team with members in different locations, this month's issue includes several articles for you. If you were unable to attend The Altshuller Institute's TRIZCON2008, this month's issue includes three articles from the conference.
The iSixSigma Marketplace (iSixSigma is a part of CTQ Media, parent company to The TRIZ Journal) is such a success that this summer it will be re-launching with product offerings expanding to the topics of systematic innovation and business process management. What can you sell? Materials that business professionals want in any number of forms, including:
Become a partner! Once you have a product ready for sale that is 100 percent owned by you or your company, contact the Marketplace with your request to partner. Or contact Marketplace manager Virginia Hill directly at 206-347-0943 or Virginia.Hill@iSixSigma.com.
Don't relax now that it's summer – keep the great articles coming! You can submit them at anytime through our submission page.
Contact the editors with any questions or suggestions. We love to hear from our readers!
Until July, happy TRIZ reading!
