Bonne Année! Feliz Año Nuevo! Xin Nian Kuai Le! To all our readers worldwide – Happy New Year!
We begin 2009 with a mix of topics:

- Patent research continues; Darrell Mann shares an update on his 2006-2008 findings.
- The combination of TRIZ with creative problem solving methods is examined in “TRIZ: Incorporating the BRIGHT Process in Design.”
- It’s your last chance to register for iSixSigma Live! Summit & Awards, January 12-16 in Miami. The event includes an innovation track and master class workshop on the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ)!
