One, Two, TRIZ! Innovation in a Wiz!

General description

- The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not Eureka! (I found it!) but rather, "hmmm... that's funny... " - Isaac Asimov

Have you ever spotted a little incongruence? Have you ever exploited it to create something radically better? Have you ever let your intuition wander just to get new ideas? Don’t you love that exciting feeling of “making innovation happen”?

Well, LBG Milano has just what you need! Right here! Right now! (in October, that’s it)

The magic word is TRIZ… and at the end of our great week you’ll know what is all about! ;-) For now we can only tell you this: if you are a creative mind, you’ll have a great tool to make your ideas “actual”! And if you fear you’re not that much of a creative, we’ll show you a sure way to become a great innovator!

So, leave all worries behind and come to the land of fashion, excitement and good food! ;) Milano and his most eminent innovator, aka Mr. Leonardo da Vinci, are only waiting for your enthusiasm to start a new Renaissance of ideas!
