Welcome to the April 2007 issue of The TRIZ Journal!

By Katie Barry, Ellen Domb and Michael S. Slocum

This month we have articles from the U.K., the U.S.A., Israel, France, the Netherlands and Iran. Two themes predominate this month: 1) formulating a problem so that it is easy to decide which tools to use to solve the problem and 2) using familiar tools in a wide variety of applications.

Remember to check the Training and Events Calendar frequently – new items are added weekly, and sometimes daily! Editor Katie Barry will be at the Front End of Innovation conference in May in Boston, Mass., U.S.A. (TRIZ Journal readers can use priority code XM1904RL to receive a 15 percent discount), and many of our authors as well as the editors are planning now for the Japan, Mexico and European meetings in the fall.

Editors Katie, Ellen Domb and Michael Slocum will all be at the Altshuller Institute's TRIZCON2007 in Louisville, Ky., U.S.A. Please introduce yourselves and tell us how we can improve The TRIZ Journal for you!

If you have been working with or researching TRIZ, please consider sharing your results with the TRIZ Journal audience. The editors and readers are always looking for new case studies and analyses.

Until May, happy TRIZ reading!
