Abstract: TRIZ (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) is one of the well-known tools, based on analytical methods for creative problem solving. With the latest advances in technology along with the human advancements, a tough competition exists between various organisations and the top management. At this stage, the Research and Development (R&D) and Marketing of products are more important. As a result, the multinational enterprises should rely on both the innovations and marketing strategies of products for higher competency. TRIZ is a premier disruptive technology for innovation that can be used throughout many industries and sciences. Elements of TRIZ can be effectively used by a wide range of people from children to adults. This paper suggests adapted version of contradiction matrix, a powerful tool of TRIZ and few principles based on concept of original TRIZ.
