       "Ideation's modern version of TRIZ is unique. It helps to crystallize the interplay of causes and effects between useful and undesired functions in any system, business or engineering effort, leading to an exhaustive set of solutions to sub-problems that, if implemented, increase system ideality. As a brainstorming tool it is very effective. The automated formulation process quickly generates a high number of prototypical directions in which solutions can be sought, with the potential to create significant concepts that were previously missed or unimplemented. The generality of the new approach is surprising for those who believe I- TRIZ is only relevant in hard-core engineering. This is also a tool for everyday consulting and business thinking." – Howard Smith, Computer Sciences Corporation
       "I predict that TRIZ will become a standard practice worldwide and will be widely taught to adults and students to assist them in increasing innovation skills." – Daniel Burrus, leading technology forecaster, author of Technotrends
