By Katie Barry, Marco de Carvalho, Ellen Domb and Paul Filmore
Project management, the Moon, the Toyota Motor Corporation, construction sites and a fictional case study are the focal points of October's TRIZ Journal. As nice as it is to have some months with themes, the breadth of topics that can appear within one issue hopefully delight the readers as much as they do the editors.
Deadlines to enter are fast approaching! For more information on award categories and entry requirements, visit: http://live.isixsigma.com/awards.
Until November, happy TRIZ reading!
