  "TRIZ Home Page in Japan" Updated (Sept. 7, 2019)  

Presentation at Japan TRIZ Symposium 2019: World TRIZ Sites Project (WTSP) (2): World WTSP Catalogs of TRIZ-related Sites in the World (T. Nakagawa, D. Mann, M. Orloff, S. Dewulf, S. Litvin, V. Souchkov)

  

 [WTSP] Letter: (13M-3AB/DE) WTSP presentation at Japan TRIZ Symp.; Your urgent contributions requested.

Toru Nakagawa ==>  WTSP Members and TRIZ Colleagues    Sept. 9, 2019

We gave a presentation at Japan TRIZ Symposium 2019 (Sept. 5-6, 2019 in Tokyo) on the recent achievements of WTSP.
    Presentation slides are now posted in "TRIZ Home Page in Japan" both in English and in Japanese

As you know, we are going to enhance and revise the Preliminary (Aug. 4) version of our World WTSP Catalogs in the following schedule:
     Manuscripts due: Sept. 15, 2019 (Sun.),
     Posting in TRIZ Home Page in Japan: Sept. 30, 2019 (Mon.)
     Presentation at ETRIA TFC 2019: Oct. 9 (Wed.) -11(Fri), 2019.

We plan to build the following 3 types of World WTSP Indexes:
    (A) TRIZ Sites, Basic Index (◎○): Contributions from many countries are necessary.
    (B) TRIZ Sites, Extended Index (◎○□): Desirable
    (C) Around TRIZ Sites, Basic Index (◎○): Preliminary version will be made by Nakagawa.

*** Please contribute manuscripts (A)(B) from your country !

[1] Presentation at Japan TRIZ Symposium 2019:

World TRIZ Sites Project (WTSP) (2): World WTSP Catalogs of TRIZ-related Sites in the World
    (by Toru Nakagawa, Darrell Mann, Michael Orloff, Simon Dewulf, Simon Litvin, Valeri Souchkov)
    Japan TRIZ Symposium 2019, held by Japan TRIZ Society, on Sept. 5-6, 2019 in Tokyo.
    The slides in English (PDF ) and in Japanese (PDF ) are posted.

From the start of our WTSP project in Dec. 2017, we took the Bottom-up strategy
   to build TRIZ sites Catalogs in each country first and
   then to build the World Catalog containing selected sites.
Even though we have about 70 TRIZ colleagues from 30+ countries who signed to work for WTSP,
   forming WTSP teams with Country Editors and drafting Country WTSP Catalogs were not achieved in most countries by the end of Mar. 2019,
   because active TRIZ colleagues are always too busy in their various jobs.

So we started Top-down approaches also.
    Realizing the necessity of a concrete image of the final product, we set in mid Jul. 2019 an urgent goal of completing the First Preliminary version of World WTSP Catalogs quickly.

We have completed it on Aug. 4, 2019.

Manuscript documents contributed by Japan, Malaysia, China, and Russian region and two top-down surveys (in the world and in USA) are used.
WTSP Catalog of World TRIZ Sites Basic Index now contains 19 ◎ (Most important) sites and 41 ○ (Important) sites.
It is remarkable that we have established
    a feasible, expandable and maintainable structure of Catalog documents,
    a flexible and practical ways of categorizing/rearranging the sites, and
    a useful top page of showing and handling WTSP Catalogs with various types of indexes.

We are going to improve it further
    by adding many more sites evaluated as ◎○□,
    extending our scope to the sites around TRIZ, and
    adding introductory descriptions of individual sites.

Emergence of bottom-up activities in every country is the crucial issue for our further success.
Two slides are attached in this email. 'Current achievement of WTSP' and 'TRIZ Spirits in WTSP'.

 

------------------

*** We sincerely wish your urgent support and contributions of the Catalog manuscript of highly recommendable sites in your country !!

Let's work Together ! Connected !!
Best wishes, Toru

 

 [WTSP] Letter: (13GC-2) Urgent request for manuscripts of Revised World WTSP Catalogs

Toru Nakagawa ==>  WTSP Global Co-editors and (possible) Country Editors   Sept. 9, 2019

I have just sent you and many more (about 170 in total, with BCC) the [WTSP] Letter (13M-3AB/3DE) WTSP presentation at Japan TRIZ Symp.; We wish your urgent support.
    As I wrote there, we wish to have your urgent contributions of manuscripts for revising/enhancing the Preliminary version of World WTSP Catalogs.

You may be surprised to learn the fact that I have received NO Manuscripts since Aug. 4 till today.

    (Here is a case of Germany:
     Last October Robert Adunka checked my internet search of TRIZ sites in Germany and found it very noisy.
     He sorted the sites and made a list of selected TRIZ sites and posted it as a Google document for sharing with several German colleagues to edit it further.
     But the document has not been sent to me yet.
     Last week at Japan TRIZ Symosium, Robert Adunka attended at my presentation.
     He promised me to send the Google document to current WTSP Country Editors of Germany.
     I hope German colleagues to check the document and adjust its format to match the current form of WTSP Manuscripts.
    Communicate with your colleagues and do just a bit of work for urgent and timely collaboration!! )

Please read again the [WTSP] Letter: (13GC-1) sent to you 2 weeks ago, concerning to the detail of the tasks.
    ◎ (Most Important (about top 30) in the world) sites and
    ○ (Important (about top 100) in the world) sites are requested to be introduced in the Basic Index (A).

I wish your understanding and collaboration, while in your very busy jobs.
Best wishes, Toru


 

  "TRIZ Home Page in Japan" Updated (Sept. 12, 2019)  

Preliminary Internet Search (3D) of TRIZ-related Sites in a wider scope with the keywords: (Quality OR Value OR Cost OR Productivity) (Deploy OR Engineering OR Management OR Control OR Analysis) (Method OR Technique OR Theory OR Process OR "Case Study")    (Toru Nakagawa)

 

 [WTSP] Letter: (13M-4AB/DE) TRIZ Sites Catalogs and Around-TRIZ Sites Catalogs

Toru Nakagawa ==>  WTSP Members and TRIZ Colleagues    Sept. 12, 2019

I have just posted a new report (3D) of top-down survey for the sites Around-TRIZ,
    with the key words containing Quality/ Value/ Cost/ Productivity.
    The results will be integrated into the WTSP Catalogs (C) Around-TRIZ Basic Index (with ◎○).

We are to build the following 3 types of World WTSP Indexes:
    (A) TRIZ Sites, Basic Index (◎○)
    (B) TRIZ Sites, Extended Index (◎○□)
    (C) Around-TRIZ Sites, Basic Index (◎○)

Our schedule is:
    Manuscripts due: Sept. 15, 2019 (Sun.),
    Posting in TRIZ Home Page in Japan: Sept. 30, 2019 (Mon.)
    Presentation at ETRIA TFC 2019: Oct. 9 (Wed.) -11(Fri), 2019.

*** Please contribute manuscripts (A)(B) from your country !

---------------------

[1] Preliminary Internet Search (3D) of TRIZ-related Sites in a wider scope
        with the keywords: (Quality OR Value OR Cost OR Productivity) AND
         (Deploy OR Engineering OR Management OR Control OR Analysis) AND
         (Method OR Technique OR Theory OR Process OR "Case Study")
                (Toru Nakagawa) (Sept. 12, 2019)

The main theme in the top-down survey has been extended further.
These Key words are designed to specify
    the goals first (i.e., Quality, Value, Cost, or Productivity),
    then the action for achieving them (i.e., Deploy, Engineering, Management, Control, or Analysis),
    and finally the ways of processing (i.e., Method, Technique, Theory, Process, or Case study).

These Key words intend to complement the former Key words,
    and have resulted in 223 sites most of which are new and not overlapping with the former surveys.

Among the sites, I evaluated as
    ◎ Most important 16 sites (including 8 sites L already listed elsewhere),
    ○ Important 38 sites (including 6 L sites),
    □ World Catalog 86 sites (including 2 L sites),
    △ Country Catalog 36 sites (including 0 L site), and
    - Irrelevant 41 sites.

The sites are shown in the HTML page and in the .docx file .
See also the sample description of the ◎ and ○ sites in the HTML page.

We are looking forward to your contributions and supports.

I have completed the Sept. 30, 2019 Version of the WTSP Catalogs and have uploaded the set in "TRIZ Home Page in Japan".
    (C) World AROUND-TRIZ Sites Basic Index (◎○): Completed
    (A) World TRIZ Sites Basic Index (◎○): Minor revision

-----------------

[1] World WTSP Catalogs: (C) World Around-TRIZ Sites Basic Index (◎○)      Toru Nakagawa     Sept. 30, 2019 

WTSP Catalog of "AROUND-TRIZ" Web sites in the world has been completed and posted
    as an important component of the Revised Preliminary Version (Sept. 30, 2019) of the WTSP World TRIZ-related Sites Catalogs .

This reflects our philosophy that we should think and work with a wider scope not limited to (classical and modernized) TRIZ but covering various methodologies and practices having common purposes and goals.
So we made intensive Internet surveys with the keywords including:
    Creative Thinking Method, Creative Problem Solve; Innovation process/strategy,
    Quality/value/cost/productivity, Patent/Intellectual property, etc.
In 6 cases of surveys, we detected 1,008 sites in total and visited them one by one for understanding them roughly.
Thus we got and evaluated as ◎ 36 sites, ○ 137 sites, and □ 287 sites (allowing overlaps among the survey cases).

In addition, for the sense of 'TRIZ inclusive", some of ◎○ sites in the area of TRIZ (especially having some extensions from TRIZ) are included.
Also ◎○□ sites around TRIZ in Japan are also included for showing our intention of the scope.

In the present 'World Around-TRIZ Sites Basic Index', we took the ◎○ sites
    and categorized and arranged them according to their (main) roles of sites.
The categories are:
    (a) Information sending sites,     (b) Promoter organizations,    (c) Public organizations,    (d) Academia,
    (e) Developer organizations,   (e5) Training organizations,    (f) Publishing organizations,   (g) Information sharing,
    (h) User organizations,    (i) Personal.

The present version includes ◎ 34 sites, ○ 128 sites, and □ 13 sites.
All the sites are described to some extents mostly by using the excerpts of the top pages or 'About us' pages of the sites.

---- All these sites in the WTSP Catalogs are valuable and useful information sources with respect to TRIZ and related methods.
All of us, from beginners to experts in some of these areas, can learn much from them and may introduce them to many people in the world.

[2] Minor revision of (A) World TRIZ Sites Basic Index (◎○) 

During last August and September, I have received the WTSP manuscripts only from the Russian language (RUL) Team.
Michael Orloff revised his table (submitted in July) by adding 2 new sites and updating the description of 1 site.

For the purpose of making a well balanced (C) Around-TRIZ Index,
    I selected several ◎○ TRIZ sites (including 2 new ones) and wrote introductions of them.
These are the only revisions we did on the World TRIZ Sites Index.

---- The present (A) World TRIZ Sites Basic Index is poor in comparison to the desirable one (and even to our (C) Index).
     Many important and useful TRIZ sites are missing,
         because the manuscripts are contributed by only 4 country teams (among 30-40 countries).
     Individual sites are not described/introduced enough to understand their natures and features.

Please take a glance of our WTSP Catalogs, especially (A) and (C).

We are going to give a presentation of the WTSP Project on Oct. 10, 2019 at the ETRIA TFC in Marrakech, Morocco.
    We wish to have your feedback on the Catalogs and on the project.

Let's work Together ! Connected !!
But how can we really work Together ? Connected ??
Best wishes, Toru

 


  

  Toru Nakagawa ==>  Readers of THPJ in Japan (in Japanese)    Oct. 1, 2019

I have updated the "TRIZ Home Page in Japan" (since my last update annoncement) on Sept. 7, 12, 19 and today.  Main articles are:

[1]  Presentation at Japan TRIZ Symposium 2019: World TRIZ Sites Project (WTSP) (2): World WTSP Catalogs of TRIZ-related Sites in the World (T. Nakagawa, D. Mann, M. Orloff, S. Dewulf, S. Litvin, V. Souchkov)

Our WTSP project has been trying the Bottom-up strategy, i.e., to build TRIZ sites Catalogs in each country first and   then to build the World Catalog containing selected sites.   But this does not work well because active TRIZ colleagues are always too busy in their various jobs.

Realizing the necessity of a concrete image of the final product, we started the Top-down apporoaches in March this year.
In mid July we set an urgent goal of completing the First Preliminary version of World WTSP Catalogs quickly, and achieved it on Aug. 4, 2019.
Manuscript documents contributed by Japan, Malaysia, China, and Russian region and two top-down surveys (in the world and in USA) are used. 

WTSP Catalog of World TRIZ Sites Basic Index now contains 19 ◎ (Most important) sites and 41 ○ (Important ) sites. 
It is remarkable that we have established
    a feasible, expandable and maintenable structure of Catalog documents,
    a flexible and practical ways of categorizing/rearranging the sites, and
    a useful top page of showing and handling WTSP Catalogs with various types of indexes. 

We are going to improve it further.  2 slides (in Japanese) are shown here. 

 

[2] World WTSP Catalogs: (C) World Around-TRIZ Sites Basic Index (◎○) Completed (Toru Nakagawa)     Sept. 30, 2019 

We should think and work with a wider scope not limited to (classical and modernized) TRIZ but covering various methodologies and practices having common purposes and goals.
So I made intensive Internet surveys with the keywords including:
    Creative Thinking Method, Creative Problem Solve; Innovation process/strategy,
    Quality/value/cost/productivity, Patent/Intellectual property, etc.
In 6 cases of surveys, we detected 1,008 sites in total and visited them one by one for understanding them roughly.

AROUND-TRIZ Sites in the World (WTSP Catalog, Basic Index (C)) Completed and posted (Sept. 30, 2019) ◎34, ○128 sites

WTSP Catalog of "AROUND-TRIZ" Web sites in the world has been completed and posted as an important component of the WTSP World TRIZ-related Sites Catalogs .

This reflects our philosophy that we should think and work with a wider scope not limited to (classical and modernized) TRIZ but covering various methodologies and practices having common purposes and goals.

I made intensive Internet surveys with the keywords including:
    Creative Thinking Method, Creative Problem Solving, Innovation process/strategy,
    Quality/value/cost/productivity, Patent/Intellectual property, etc.

In the 6 cases of surveys, I detected 1,008 sites in total and visited them one by one for understanding them roughly. Thus I got and evaluated as ◎ 36 sites, ○ 137 sites, and □ 287 sites (allowing overlaps among the survey cases).

In the present 'World Around-TRIZ Sites Basic Index', I used the ◎○ sites from these surveys.
In addition, for the sense of "TRIZ inclusive", some of ◎○ sites in the area of TRIZ (especially having some extensions from TRIZ) are included. Also ◎○□ sites around TRIZ in Japan are included for showing our intention of the scope.

Thus the present version includes ◎ 34 sites, ○ 128 sites, and □ 13 sites (without duplication). All the sites are described in 5-15 lines each mostly by using the excerpts of the top pages or 'About us' pages of the sites.

All such sites are categorized and arranged according to their (main) roles of sites.
    I.e., (a) Information sending sites, (b) Promoter organizations, (c) Public organizations,
    (d) Academia, (e) Developer organizations, (e5) Training organizations,
    (f) Publishing organizations, (g) Information sharing,
    (h) User organizations, (i) Personal.

The following figure shows the 34 ◎ (most important) sites with some arbitrary grouping.

All these sites in the WTSP Catalogs are valuable and useful information sources with respect to TRIZ and related methods. All of us, from beginners to experts in some of these areas, can learn much from them and may introduce them to many people in the world.

See more detail: TRIZ Home Page in Japan:   http://www.osaka-gu.ac.jp/php/nakagawa/TRIZ/eTRIZ/

We know that none of us, including myself, are experts in such a wide range of fields like these, and we wish you to feed us back with comments and to help us revise and improve these WTSP Catalogs step by step as a long-run project.    Thanks.   Toru Nakagawa

[1] Presentation at ETRIA TFC2019:
    World TRIZ Sites Project (WTSP) (2): To Build World WTSP Catalogs of TRIZ-related Sites in the World
         (Toru Nakagawa, Darrell Mann, Michael Orloff, Simon Dewulf, Simon Litvin, Valeri Souchkov)

Presented at TRIZ Future Conference TFC2019, held by ETRIA, on Oct. 9-11, 2019 at ENSA, Marrakech, Morocco.

I sent the final paper to TFC on Jul. 24, and since then we made much progress in the WTSP project.
    I.e., we made preliminary version of World TRIZ sites Basic Index (A) on Aug. 4 ;
    reported at Japan TRIZ Symposium 2019 on Sept. 5 ; and
    completed World AROUND-TRIZ sites Basic Index (C) on Sept. 30.
Thus at TFC2019 on Oct. 10 we could give the WTSP presentation in a much advanced form than the paper in the proceedings, and even than the Japan TRIZ Symposium presentation.

The following items are posted in the present page:
    (1) Abstract of the paper with a short note,
    (2) Link to the full paper published by Springer: DOI: https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-030-32497-1_40 ,
    (3) Summary slides of the presentation ,
    (4) Slides of the presentation .

In this email I attach the PDF file of the Summary Slides (3) and a GIF image of (A0) World TRIZ Sites Top Index (◎).

 

[2] For Further Revisions of the WTSP Catalogs: Practice Guide and Schedule (Toru Nakagawa)

As reported above, we have completed the Preliminary Version of our WTSP Catalogs of TRIZ-related Sites in the World, especially in the form of (A) World TRIZ Sites Basic Index and (C) World AROUND-TRIZ Sites Basic Index.

---- We will call them "WTSP Catalogs of TRIZ-related Sites in the World (Version 2019)" or in short "WTSP Catalogs (2019)".
     We thank you for all your supports for the WTSP project and collaboration for making these Catalogs possible.

However, they are still very weak, especially TRIZ sites in many countries are missing and not introduced closely.

Now that the goals and processes of building the WTSP Catalogs have become much clearer and convincing,
    we wish to get voluntary cooperation by many TRIZ colleagues in every country,

For further revising and improving the WTSP Catalogs, the Practice Guide is shown again in a compact form.

Manuscripts/updates by any country Teams or methodology groups
    will be accepted at any time by the WTSP Project Leader and will be publicized quickly in TRIZ Home Page in Japan.
And every 3 months such manuscripts will be integrated into the World Indexes for publication .

Let's work Together ! Connected !! and
report much more useful "WTSP Catalogs (2020)" at the TFC2020 next year in Romania !!!

Best wishes, Toru

  Michael Orloff (Germany) ==> Toru Nakagawa   Oct. 21, 2019   

Dear Toru, many thanks for informing me about your great efforts in structuring the TRIZ "knowledge and information generators" in the World!

Could you be so kind to take in account that I have two web resources equal valuable and active:
    1) in Russian: Global Russian Academy for Modern TRIZ (Michael Orloff) - www.gramtriz.com
    2) in English: Modern TRIZ Academy (Michael Orloff) - www.modern-triz-academy.com or / and simply www.mtriz.com

I think that your team made accent for Russian web-site because I have worked for list of Russian web-sites. Yes, I did it. But my own acivity includes of course English web-site which is main for our going business.
Dear Toru, I would be very grateful you for including also my second web-site into your list valuable web resources.

Our common cause is worth it
Kind regards,    Michael

  Toru Nakagawa ==>Michael Orloff    Oct. 21, 2019   

Dear Michael, Thank you for your message.

I am grateful for your efforts for WTSP Catalogs of the Russian language sites. Without your list of sites, our WTSP TRIZ Sites Basic Index would be very poor.

Concerning your English sites, we would like to have them included in the WTSP Catalogs (Germany Part).

In Germany, there are many active TRIZ people.
Robert Adunka made a list of TRIZ sites about a year ago, and Pavel Livotov and Oliver Meyer have agreed to serve as the Country Editors of Germany last June or so.
But no circulation seems to be sent from any of them to start to form the WTSP Team and to work to make the list of TRIZ sites.

Would you please write about your www.mtriz.com site and ask Adunka, Livotov, and Meyer to include it in their list of TRIZ sites in Germany ?
Germany is one of the key countries for TRIZ and for WTSP.

Dear Michael, The most important mail so far concerning to the list of sites in Germany is the one from Robert Adunka last year.  [Oct. 2, 2018.  To: Nakagawa  CC: Defonga, Hiltmann, Naehler, Nagel, Thurnes, Zeihsel, Orloff, Mann]

I began a Google-Doc under   https://docs.google.com/document/d/**** (snip) 
Please share the link. Everybody could edit that file that has the link above.
If we feel the work is done, Toru can copy it to his site.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Robert Adunka

I visited his Google doc today for the first time. It is still alive without any revision.
Last September in Japan TRIZ Symposium 2019, Robert Adunka promised me to send his documents to Pavel Livotov and Oliver Meyer, who are jointly the Country Editors of Germany.
I don't know how the things are going right now.
Do you have any idea of starting smooth communications among the TRIZ leaders in Germany?
Best wishes, Toru

  Michael Orloff ==> Toru Nakagawa   Oct. 22, 2019   

Thank you, dear Toru!  
I think that I have missed this! :((                      Yours, Michael

  Shireen Al Jaouni (Palestine) ==> Toru Nakagawa   Oct. 21, 2019   

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the effort for preparing and organizing this informative World WTSP Catalogs to form a platform for networking, exchange of lessons learnt and best practices of TRIZ.

Your continuous supporting and cooperation will be highly appreciated;
Together ! Connected !!
Warm Regards;      Shireen Al - Jaouni, MSc., PMP

 


    

  [WTSP] Letter (15C-1PL) For starting the WTSP work in Poland

  Toru Nakagawa ==> Joanna Majchrzak; cc: Prof. C. Cempel, Prof. S. Koziołek    Oct. 26, 2019 

It was nice to meet you again at CTF2019 in Morocco.

Thank you very much for your interests in and your volunteering to start building the WTSP Catalogs in Poland.

In a sense the WTSP project is a big project, but if it once started in a country with the collaboration of a group of people, the actual work for individual members (except the coordinator) is rather easy, I believe.
Following the Practice Guide (Oct. 10, 2019), and with the help of Professor Cempel and Professor Koziolek, you will be able to build Poland WTSP Catalog and then World WTSP Catalog (Poland Part) step by step.
Such Catalogs and the team work for building them will be very useful and valuable for people in Poland and for the working members.
The law of "20 - 80 %" is an important guiding principle for us.
    "Do the essential 20% of work first, then you get the 80 % of results."

(1) I have made a list of people who are interested in TRIZ and related methodologies in Poland. (See attached file)
    People (10) in my "TRIZ Home Page in Japan" mailing list (accumulated for these 20 years) + People (7) in my LinkedIn connections (1st level).
    Of course you know some more people.

The list may form the basis of your asking their help and contribution.
It may be enough to have several people of them as WTSP Members, but ask all the people to contribute information of recommendable sites and description of their own sites.
Please note some of these people are more interested in AROUND-TRIZ than in TRIZ.
    So please get help of them in such areas.

(2) I would advise you to talk with Prof. Cempel and Prof. Kozwolek how to form Poland WTSP Team and how to work actually.
Probably you and young people like you can work best at the practice level with the leadership and guidance of Professors.

If you have any questions and needs of help, please write to me at any time.
Looking forward to hearing from you again,
Best wishes, Toru

  Prof. Czeslaw Cempel ==> Toru Nakagawa    Oct. 27, 2019 

Dear professor Nakagawa,
We are very obliged for your work on TRIZ.
Specially that you devoted your time to manage a list of people interested in TRIZ in a given country.
Have a good health and good ideas to serve world society on TRIZ novelty
Yours sincerely,   Czeslaw CEMPEL

  Toru Nakagawa ==> Prof. Czeslaw Cempel;  cc: Joanna Majchrzak    Oct. 27, 2019 

Thank you, Professor Cempel.
At TFC2019, Joanna told me so decisively to volunteer to start the WTSP project work in Poland.
I wish very much that you and Professor Koziolek support and guide her and other young people for working with TRIZ and related methodologies.
It is very important to make a good practice of WTSP Team activities and making Country WTSP Catalogs.
I eagerly hope Poland to make such a case !!
Best wishes, Toru

  Toru Nakagawa ==> Joanna Majchrzak, Maksymilian Smolnik, Lukasz Kogut; cc: Prof. C. Cempel, Prof. S. Koziołek    Oct. 28, 2019 

In my last email on Oct. 26, I made a mistake to forget to include the two WTSP Members in Poland in the mail recipients and in the table of the People working/ interested in TRIZ-related Methodologies. I attach the revised file here in .xlsx.

Dear Maksimilian and Lukasz, please read my last email cited below, and please communicate with Joanna.
I hope that you three (and some more volunteers) can work in good collaboration.

Best wishes, Toru

PS: For some more details please refer to my Web site.

  Joanna Majchrzak==> Toru Nakagawa; CC: M. Smolnik, L. Kogut, Prof. C. Cempel, Prof. S. Koziołek     Oct. 28, 2019 

Dear Professor Toru Nakagawa,
I would like to kindly thank you for your message.
It's a privilege volunteering to start building the WTSP Catalogs in Poland.
I would like to also kindly thank you for your advices and attached file with the list of people who are interested in TRIZ and related methodologies in Poland.

I would begin my work with the polite enquiry to Prof. Cempel and Prof. Koziolek for consultation about how constitute the approach and course of our activities in Poland.
I appreciate that I am involved in creating Poland WTSP Team.

Thank you Professor.   Best Regards,      Joanna Majchrzak.

 


 

  [WTSP] Letter (15C-1DE) For starting the WTSP work in Germany

  Toru Nakagawa ==> Prof. Pavel Livotov, Prof. Oliver Mayer, and 13 more people  Oct. 29, 2019 

Dear Prof. Pavel Livotov, Prof. Oliver Mayer, and WTSP Members and Supporters in Germany,   Hello, how are you?
It was nice to have met some of you again/newly at TFC2019 in Marrakech, Morocco.

As I gave a presentation there, and posted later in my "TRIZ Home Page in Japan", we have accomplished the important initial step in the Word TRIZ-related Sites Project (WTSP).

By using both Bottom-up and Top-down approaches, we have built the Preliminary Versions of the WTSP Catalogs; especially (A) World TRIZ Sites Basic Index and (C) World AROUND-TRIZ Sites Basic Index.
The document structure of the WTSP Catalogs has been established in a way for us to build the Catalogs smoothly and for the users to read and use them effectively.

At this stage, we very much need your help and contributions to build the World WTSP Catalogs (Germany Part).

The present version (WTSP Catalogs (2019)) is still very weak because only 4 countries (among nearly 50 countries using TRIZ) contributed their manuscripts of their parts of the WTSP Catalogs.
Even though you, in Germany, are working actively with TRIZ and are operating many active and useful Web sites, very little of them are reflected in the current WTSP Catalgos.
As you understand naturally, only people in the German TRIZ community can best introduce TRIZ-related sites in Germany to the people in the world.

For assisting you to initialize your WTSP activities in Germany, I would like to show you some relevant information here.

(1) The "Practice Guide" is the compact and useful instructions for the WTSP activities in individual countries.

(2) The present WTSP Members and Members-to-be (who once stated to join WTSP but have not yet submitted the Membership Application Form) in Germany are listed in the attached Excel file, together with the people who are working/interested in TRIZ-related methodologies.

(a) Michael Orloff is one of the 5 Global Co-editors of WTSP and has been serving also as the Regional Editor of Russian speaking countries/sites.

(b) Pavel Livotov and Oliver Mayer have volunteered to be the Country Editors of Germany, jointly.
Since they are busy, of course, they may need your cooperation and help for coordinating the WTSP activities in Germany.

(c) Nick Eckert and Vladimir Sizikov are WTSP Members.
10 more people from Robert Adunka to Frank Zeihsel in the table are Members to be who once stated to join WTSP.
     (Please submit your Membership Application Form)
Since you have 15 Members all together, you will be able to form a strong WTSP Team.
    Note: Claudia Hentschel and Horst Naehler communicated me 'not able to get involved in the WTSP Team'.

(d) All other people are cited here from Nakagawa's HP mailing list (accumulated and maintained for these 20 years) and Nakagawa's LinkedIn connections (1st level).
They are working/interested in TRIZ-related methodologies and will be good supporters and contributors of WTSP.

(3) The first activity is to gather information of 'recommendable sites in Germany'.

(e) You may use the template shown in the Practice Guide.

(f) It may be useful to send the information of WTSP and the request for recommendation as widely as possible using the name lists shown here and other lists you already have.

(g) Such information may be gathered via emails, or better by using Google Doc or some other similar document sharing system.

(h) In this relation, Robert Adunka started a similar activity Oct. 2 last year, saying:
> I began a Google-Doc under https://docs.google.com/document/d/xxxxxx (snip).  Please share the link. Everybody could edit that file that has the link above. If we feel the work is done, Toru can copy it to his site.

Unfortunately, the file stays without any revision. Probably Adunka's email has been buried without notice, because he sent it to me with CC to 7 German TRIZ leaders.

Anyway, we wish you to initiate the WTSP activities in Germany.
Germany is one of the most active and influential countries in TRIZ and AROUND-TRIZ methodologies, needless to say.

With best wishes, Toru


 

  [WTSP] Letter (15C-1Fr) For starting the WTSP work in France

  Toru Nakagawa ==> Prof. Roland De Guio, Dr. Pascal Sire, and 6 more people  Oct. 30, 2019 

Dear Prof. Roland De Guio, Dr. Pascal Sire, and WTSP Members in France, Hello, how are you?
It was nice to have met some of you again/newly at TFC2019 in Marrakech, Morocco.

As I gave a presentation there, and posted later in my "TRIZ Home Page in Japan", we have accomplished the important initial step in the Word TRIZ-related Sites Project (WTSP).

By using both Bottom-up and Top-down approaches, we have built the Preliminary Versions of the WTSP Catalogs; especially (A) World TRIZ Sites Basic Index and (C) World AROUND-TRIZ Sites Basic Index.
The document structure of the WTSP Catalogs has been established in a way for us to build the Catalogs smoothly and for the users to read and use them effectively.

At this stage, we very much need your help and contributions to build the World WTSP Catalogs (France Part).

The present version (WTSP Catalogs (2019)) is still very weak because only 4 countries (among nearly 50 countries using TRIZ) contributed their manuscripts of their parts of the WTSP Catalogs.
Even though you, in France, are working actively with TRIZ and are operating many active and useful Web sites, very little of them are reflected in the current WTSP Catalogs.
As you understand naturally, only people in the France TRIZ community can best introduce TRIZ-related sites in France to the people in the world.

For assisting you to initialize your WTSP activities in France, I would like to show you some relevant information here.

(1) The "Practice Guide" is the compact and useful instructions for the WTSP activities in individual countries. 

(2) The present WTSP Members and Members-to-be (who once stated to join WTSP but have not yet submitted the Membership Application Form) in France are listed in the attached Excel file, together with the people who are working/interested in TRIZ-related methodologies.

(a) Roland De Guio and Pascal Sire are the Country Editors of France, jointly.
Since they are busy, of course, they may need your cooperation and help for coordinating the WTSP activities in France.

(b) Sebastien Dubois is a WTSP Member. 5 more people addressed in this email and shown (WTSP status) B in the table are Members-to-be who once stated to join WTSP.
     (Please submit your Membership Application Form)
Since you have 8 Members all together, you will be able to form a strong WTSP Team.
Note: Dmitry Kucharavy communicated me 'not able to get involved in the WTSP Team'. (Thus WTSP Status C)

(c) All other people are cited here from Nakagawa's HP mailing list (accumulated and maintained for these 20 years) and Nakagawa's LinkedIn connections (1st level).
They are working/interested in TRIZ-related methodologies and will be good supporters and contributors of WTSP.

(3) The first activity is to gather information of 'recommendable sites in France'.

(d) You may use the template shown in the Practice Guide.

(e) It may be useful to send the information of WTSP and the request for recommendation as widely as possible using the name lists shown here and other lists you already have.

(f) Such information may be gathered via emails, or better by using Google Doc or some other similar document sharing system.

(g) Some of the people in the list are interested in various areas AROUND-TRIZ than in TRIZ itself.
Please ask them to contribute to revise the World AROUND-TRIZ Catalogs.

Anyway, we wish you to initiate the WTSP activities in France in good collaboration.

With best wishes, Toru

To the World TRIZ-related Sites Project (WTSP) Global Co-editors:

I welcome the work you are doing to collect, organize, describe and link to the many internet sites that are of interest to students and practitioners of innovative methods such as TRIZ.

I have created a new bookmark folder with links to the WTSP Catalogs of TRIZ sites and the WTSP Catalogs of AROUND-TRIZ sites, and I expect that I will be referring to them frequently.

The aggregation of these sites is much better than trying to find the data with a Google search, because the information is curated and brief descriptions are provided.

I encourage TRIZ providers and other content creators working in TRIZ related fields to participate in this project and make the World TRIZ-related Sites Project the best it can possibly be.
