Biognosis Toolbox

Tools Icon (Seedling)

Some years ago, I had a product idea. In 2018, I did two crowdfunding campaigns to pre-finance the creation and printing costs. Both campaigns didn’t work out, yet I learned a lot – it was definitely worth the try. Be assured, 2019 is the year of the Biognosis Tools.

My Biognosis Toolbox offers tangible tools to support your idea generation work. Its contents are based on different methods (scroll down for a short introduction).

At the moment, I am working on a tool for TRIZ users. It shows where the 40 Inventive Principles can be found in nature. You get a high-quality set of 40 cards in a cardboard box, with a concise information booklet. If you’d like to be on my customer list, let me know.


Method basics

TRIZ … a Russian acronym for the “Theory of Inventive Problem-Solving”, which is based on a thorough patent analysis and the knowledge that is to be found there.

Biognosis … a Greek word, combining bios – life and gnosis – insight. I use it as an umbrella term for the learning from nature.

Trigger Picture Analysis … a method which uses our association capability. Looking at pictures, different thoughts are coming up. They can be used for idea generation.
