Considering the importance of delays in construction projects in NISOC ' engineering and construction management and the fact that completion of the project in due time to benefit from the plan in order to get back the investment is critical. Therefore, it is essential to revise the traditional methods of project management and achieve a new method in which the projects can get close to the real-time of scheduling. This study aimed to identify the effect of the Inventive Problem Solving theory (TRIZ) on reducing delays in construction projects in NISOC ' engineering and construction management. So, after setting the literature review and research hypothesis, the effect of this technique on reducing delays in the projects was examined by developing a coherent questionnaire. This is a descriptive-practical research, which uses Cochran formula in selecting the samples. The relevant questionnaires were analyzed using SPSS software and also descriptive and inferential statistics. The results showed that there is a significant positive correlation between inventive problem solving approach and the reduction of delays in construction projects. The effect of inventive problem solving approach on the variables of basic studies (designing), financing, supplying the efficient and specialized manpower, contractual ambiguities and lateral issues were also assessed. Eventually, using the research results, some strategies have presented to reduce the delays in construction projects in NISOC ' engineering and construction management as the population of this research.
