- and from fredrik höök. it"s very good to give a guest lecture in his course.» (From my MSc program coordinator)

19. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- the project»
- project, guest lecture»
- Guest lecturer»
- exercise session»
- the project, the course book, »
- the course»

20. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- the course"s name ! It repulses all mgmt students and is misleading. You should remove first "applied physics" or "engineering" maybe call it "creative solution design" or something more impartial. remove the software.It was useless. course: 1 lecture, 1 tool (maybe it was the case, but i did not notice it). be more structured.»
- maybe groups sizes, rearrange groups that only has 2 people?»
- N/A»
- the practice sessions did not seem relevant, nor tighltly linked to the rest of the course, the assistant did not seem prepared enough for teaching in a TRIZ course»

21. Additional comments

- N/A»
- i think it would be crucial to include a discussion about the downsides of triz. i mean, triz is a short term problem solver and it should be pointed out that it is depending on the main evolution of technology.»
