On the 24th Anniversary of "TRIZ Home Page in Japan": Toru Nakagawa (Nov. 12, 2022)

This Web site "TRIZ Home in Japan" celebrated its 24th Anniversary on Nov. 1. It serves as an open forum of information exchange for better understanding and usage of Creative Problem Solving Methodologies. I am very grateful to you all, including authors, co-authors, translators, and readers in Japan and around the world, for your continuing support.  

The WTSP Project for Creating Catalogs of TRIZ-related Websites in the World has been carried out for nearly 5 years. As for the websites Around-TRIZ, I have just finished a WTSP World Catalog which contains 33 ◎, 142 ○, and 244 □ websites with surveyor introductions in a well-balanced manner. On the other hand, the WTSP Catalog of TRIZ websites is still insufficient and unbalanced, due to the lack of colaborative work in several countries leading TRIZ. We need much more effort for making the WTSP Catalogs useful and attractive.  

I noticed that the TRIZ community is weak because of missing a representative website (or journal) even though there exist a few international conferences and many consulting firms and academic groups working competingly. I and five WTSP Global Co-editors have proposed to establish a new website (tentatively named "Systematic Innovation Review") by international and interdisciplinary cooperation in the TRIZ community. The new website should accept various/different approaches in TRIZ (and later, more widely, Creative Problem-Solving Methodlogies in general), and publicize various aspects of articles (such as philosophy, methodologies, applications, introductions, educational texts, activities, etc.). In place of unpublished original papers, we should put weights on overviews and reviews on emerging/established works, to represent and lead TRIZ and related methodologies in the world. 

I am going to work to extend and promote further the Six-Box Scheme as the basic paradigm for Creative Problem-Solving Methodologies in general, and USIT as a concise and effective process for performing the Six-Box Scheme .

I will also develop this "TRIZ Home Page in Japan" further as a prototype of the "SI Review".  I wish this Home Page is useful for you readers to solve your various problems. Your contributions either in English or in Japanese are heartily welcome.
