CTPI – Creative Thinking and Practical Implementation
CTPI System is process of teaching how to invent new breakthrough technologies, which is the most precious and strategically important tool in corporate arsenal that will help start up companies and existing companies to break through in the market with new technologies and products and lead the market. CTPI System is a future of technological creativity. CTPI System is much more advanced version of TRIZ, a first method of innovation and solving problems introduced by the Soviet inventor and Patent Examiner Genrich Altshuller in 1946, translated as “Theory of Solving of Inventive Problems”.
Contrary to TRIZ, which uses abstract solutions and enables you to access specific existing solutions to innovate or solve problems, CTPI System is the next and much more advanced method, which teaches skills of how to think creatively and invent completely different, more advanced and breakthrough technologies.
Contrary to CREAX, another approach which finds new markets for existing solutions but does not teach the methods of inventing more advanced and breakthrough technologies, CTPI System takes the human mind far and beyond what TRIZ and CREAX currently offer.
CTPI System was invented by one of our team members, a prominent inventor, former Patent Examiner at Patent Office of Russian Federation, and author of hundreds of inventions, who immigrated to United States from Soviet Union.
CTPI System is aimed at upper corporate management teams, Intellectual Property managers, in-house patent attorneys, Innovative Directors, technical engineers, designers, product developers, those involved in the development of products and processes, members of R&D department. For your convenience Inventa Capital provides training at your location anywhere in the world.
