Hello fellow TRIZ readers,
For all the TRIZ experts out there, we have big news! We have decided to continue to provide the Expert classifieds list at no charge. We realized that keeping it free opened up many other doors. Thank you to all our experts for providing feedback along the way.
Additionally, you may have noticed a question on the website regarding how the journal publishes content. We would love to know if there is a preference between keeping the monthly newsletter or simply posting articles weekly. If you haven’t done so already, please visit the site and provide your preference. We want your feedback so we are able to provide the best experience for our readers.
This month brings very special pieces and we are honored to have had the opportunity to work with such amazing authors and contributors to TRIZ. If at any time you would like to submit an article or have thoughts on how to improve the journal, website or the monthly issues, please reach out to me at Derek.Bennington@BMGI.com. I look forward to connecting with each of you personally via email or LinkedIn.
