A Brief History of TRIZ

As follows from my experience, anyone who starts seriously studying TRIZ and Systematic Innovation, sooner or later starts wondering about a history of TRIZ. Why there are so many tools, what followed what? I constantly get these questions from my "students". Since there was no TRIZ timeline yet presented in English, I wrote an article "A Brief History of TRIZ" which summarizes major steps in the development of TRIZ and Systematic Innovation. The article is freely available at http://www.xtriz.com/publications.htm (top left corner).

In case if someone notices inconsistencies, please let me know.
