A toolkit of methods assisting inventive thinking called "Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ)" was introduced by Altshuller (1956). TRIZ is nowadays gaining the popularity among practitioners and academy, indicated in steadily growing number of scientific publications. This paper conducts systematic literature review aiming at application of TRIZ in management. Our findings reveal that TRIZ, or some tools of TRIZ, like contradiction analysis and "Ideal final result" concept, are most commonly applied in innovation management particularly in Ideation and Implementation stages. We also acknowledge accompanying methodologies that are used in combination with TRIZ. Except of the benefits of TRIZ tools, results confirmed the problems of methodological complexity, expert-dependency, increased subjectivity, weak integration with IT tools and lack of industry verification cases.
