David is a Fellow of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, who loves creative problem solving, and has generated 28 patent applications. As a Design Team Leader on the Trent Gas Turbine Engine he generated two patents that became “High Value Patent Award Winners” at the Rolls-Royce “Chairman’s Awards for Technical Innovation”.
He first came across TRIZ over 20 years ago, and he immediately saw its power when he applied it to solve a difficult engineering problem his team was facing, generating a patent in the process. He subsequently championed TRIZ within Rolls-Royce, as part of a Holistic Innovation Strategy. He has facilitated a wide range of TRIZ problem solving workshops, and trained over 450 engineers and MSc Students in the TRIZ methodology.
