Systematic innovation expert working at Intel Corporation and through my own firm, Innomation, LLC. Executive Committee Member for the Altshuller Institute for TRIZ Studies.
The methods I use are based on a Russian process called The Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ). I have been studying and applying these processes to technical and business problems within Intel and for my clients including a hospital chain, a restaurant chain, and manufacturing firms to name a few. I see the real value of TRIZ to the CI community as its contribution to product advancements, patent circumvention (legal), and the ability to understand and apply the Trends of Engineering and the Trends of Business Evolution to an organization and speed the advancement of that organization towards its ideal natural evolutionary state. Further, I have used the Trends to predict how systems, processes, organizations and products will evolve and use that insight to develop systems that leap frog the competitor’s.
I hold a BS in Nuclear Engineering from Texas A&M University and a MBA in Finance from the University of New Mexico. Further, I hold a L3 certificate from the St Petersburg International TRIZ Association and will be applying for my L4 certificate within a few weeks. My wife Carole and I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico with our three sons: Dante, Roan, and Shane.
