The Altshuller Institute

for TRIZ Studies

The following are excerpts from the newsletter News of the TRIZ Movement, an extensive email sent by the TRIZ-Info Publishing Center, Cheliabinck Russia, for the period of July - September 1998.

The letter provides information about new books on TRIZ, available seminars, children's education in TRIZ, and so on. It ends with the address of V. Zuravliova, the wife of the late Genrikh Altshuller, and a letter that he prepared not long before his passing away.

We are including those portions of this letter as may be of interest to The Altshuller Institute:

Dear friends!

I am carrying out the last wish of Genrikh Saulovich. I am sending the information that has already been prepared for a seperate mailing.

V. Zuravliova

International TRIZ Association
Petrosavodsk, September, 1998

Dear Colleagues!

I have received letters requesting Certificates. For many people now, this is vitally necessary. Some TRIZniks cannot run seminars, provide lectures in Colleges, open schools and so on. A document is required stating that they have the legitimate credentials to teach TRIZ. It is time to provide this certification. Here, we need to apply serious consideration.

I am supporting, and granting, the following list of candidates to receive the Diploma of TRIZ Master:

To some candidates from this list I would give the Diploma "TRIZ Master Plus." However, we have only one blank form of Diploma.

This list with, small corrections, was made a year and a half to two years ago. Today, this list can be expanded, and we could consider that, for the first approximation, this work is complete. The list contains candidates without consideration of weather they are members of the International TRIZ Association. All of them did a great job towards developing the Theory for Solving Inventive Problems, TRIZ.
