  [WTSP] Letter (8C-eu4) Checking the TRIZ sites in the Base Document (2008); We should work with new Internet survey

  Toru Nakagawa ==> WTSP Members  in Europe   Mar. 28, 2019

Dear TRIZ leaders/colleagues in Europe,

(1) An annotated list of 120 World TRIZ Sites was compiled and posted in "TRIZ Home Page in Japan" in 2008.
It is the most elaborate catalog of TRIZ sites in the world so far, and is regarded as the model (or Base Document) of our new World WTSP Catalog.
I knew it is old and need to be revised much, but I have not shown you explicitly how obsolete it is.

So I have just checked the TRIZ sites in Europe listed in the 2008 Document, and commented them individually.
Please see the .docx file attached here.

(2) Some of my findings are:

(a) There are many sites which keep active and influential. Typically, they are TRIZ promotion organizations and leading consultants. Descriptions of them need to be updated and enhanced much.

(b) There are many sites which have changed their organization or their site URL, become inactive (without recent updates) or seem to have disappeared. They are typically consulting firms, group of people, etc.

(c) Apparently there are many more new TRIZ-related sites which have emerged after 2008 and become important. For instance, a number of countries in Europe did not have any TRIZ sites listed in the 2008 Document.

(d) In conclusion, the list of TRIZ sites we now have is quite obsolete because of so much change/advancement of our society and technology for these 10 years.

(e) Thus we need to newly carry out thorough surveys for TRIZ-related sites in the world.
We should regard the 2008 List just as a model, and should better not try to revise it.

(3) I made Preliminary Internet Surveys in September 2018 (1st round), and again recently (2nd round, Mar. 2019).

1st round: Using Yahoo.japan search engine and the keyword TRIZ, I made surveys of TRIZ related sites located in over 33 countries individually.
Table of the surveys and also the results of surveys recorded in .docx files are posted in the WTSP page of "TRIZ Home Page in Japan".
Each survey covers top 30-100 sites in each country.

2nd round: I made Preliminary Internet Surveys in a wider (top-down) view point.
They are surveys for:
       TRIZ sites written in Russian in the whole world,
       TRIZ sites written in English in the whole world,
       TRIZ sites written in German in the whole world,
       TRIZ sites written in French in the whole world,
       TRIZ sites written in Spanish/Portuguese in the whole world,
       TRIZ sites written in English in USA

Each survey covers top 50-100 sites. The survey results are recorded in .docx files, and has essentially the same sort of information as the one in the 1st round.

The survey results are processed further, by visiting the individual sites quickly, recording the number of TRIZ pages inside each site,
and evaluating the sites roughly with the symbols:
      ◎ : Most important in the World WTSP Catalog
      ○ : Important in the World WTSP Catalog
      ☐ : Worthy in the World WTSP Catalog
      △ : Worthy in Country WTSP Catalogs
      - : Irrelevant/neglected in the WTSP Catalogs

These results of the 2nd round have been sent to the relevant people connect to WTSP, and were posted or to be posted in a week in "TRIZ Home Page in Japan".

(4) Could you please work to build up the WTSP Catalogs of your country and of the whole world?
You can use the results of (3) in the 2nd round and also in the 1st round.
Please add various and many sites you think important.
You may use some more internet surveys or simply use your background knowledge.
Please visit individual sites and describe their introductions.

(5) For carrying out all these jobs in each country and in the whole world, you agree that you need to have a number of colleagues who work together with you for your country and many more for the whole world, in a cooperative and coordinated way, and that we all need a number of coordinators.
So, please volunteer to be Members, and Country Editors, Region Editos, etc. and please invite your colleagues to work together.

I am learning that there are many interesting and useful sites I did not know so far.
Thus the WTSP Catalogs we are building now will serve as a very interesting and useful information source for TRIZ beginners as well as TRIZ experts.

Let's work Together ! Connected !!

Looking forward to hearing from you,   Best wishes,    Toru

PS. I am going to post the present information, together with a list of WTSP Memebers and various drafts of WTSP Catalogs reflecting your reports, at the end of March or early April in TRIZ Home Page in Japan and in our Bitrix24 Platform.

  Toru Nakagawa ==> WTSP Members  in French Speaking Countries   Mar. 24, 2019

Dear TRIZ leaders/colleagues in French-speaking countries,

(1) I have just made a preliminary survey of TRIZ-related sites written in the French language.
Please take a look at the Word file attached here.

This is a part of the (second series of) Preliminary surveys of TRIZ-related sites in the world written in some major languages, such as Russian, English, German, French, Spanish, Chinese, etc.
The survey conditions and the process of my visiting the individual sites are explained in the file.

The survey has resulted in a list of 98 TRIZ-related sites, where individual sites are shown with (a) Site name (b) URL of the site domain (c) Number of TRIZ-related pages in the site (d) Direct search result of a page in the site.
Using the information (d) output by Yahoo.japan search engine, I visited each site and described (a)(b)(c), which are put in one line at the heading of each site.

(2) Could you please visit the sites and describe introductions to them for many people who will refer the WTSP Catalogs in the near future?
Please evaluate the sites (roughly) whether they are worthy of being recorded in the World WTSP Catalog, or in the France (or other country) WTSP Catalog, or not.

(3) You will certainly notice that this list is insufficient in listing up useful and important sites to be included in the WTSP Catalogs.
Please enhance the list and build up WTSP Catalogs, for the people in your countries and for the people in the whole world.

(4) You understand that this kind of jobs can't be done by a few people in the world because of language barriers and of huge amount of information, -- but can be achieved by many colleagues working in a cooperative manner.
Could you please form WTSP Team(s) in your countries, assign Country Editor(s), and coordinate parallel cooperative works?

[** In France, Prof. Roland de Guio and Pascal Sire are the Country Editors jointly.
Would you please coordinate the cooperative jobs?]

We wish you (and your colleagues) to join the WTSP Project and to work for building the WTSP Catalogs for proliferating TRIZ and related methodologies in your country and in the whole world.

Let's work Together ! Connected !!
Looking forward to hearing from you,         Best wishes,      Toru


 

  [WTSP] Letter (8M-4) Surveys of TRIZ sites in Russian and in English; we need much further extension 

  Toru Nakagawa ==> WTSP Members  (Status A, B)  Mar. 19, 2019

Dear WTSP Members,
WTSP pages were updated yesterday in the "TRIZ Home Page in Japan".

(1)   [WTSP] Letters (8M-A3, B3) to the Members (about 80 persons),
       [WTSP] Letters (8M-D3, E3) to the Invitees (about 100 persons), and
       [WTSP] Invitation to people, posted in LinkedIn
    You have seen similar information already.

(2) TRIZ sites written in Russian in the whole world are surveyed:
      Results with Yahoo.japan search engine: by Toru Nakagawa: 106 sites,
      List of selected TRIZ sites: by Michael Orloff: 26 selected sites by TRIZ-professionals + 49 sites (or pages) by TRIZ users

(3) TRIZ sites written in English in the whole world are surveyed:
      Results with Yahoo.japan search engine: by Toru Nakagawa.
      106 sites are shown by the search, and visited and evaluated quickly by Nakagawa, resulting:
          ◎ : Most important in the World WTSP Catalog ( 6 sites)
          ○ : Important in the World WTSP Catalog (13 sites)
           ☐ : Worthy in the World WTSP Catalog (29 sites)
          △ : Worthy in Country WTSP Catalogs (33 sites)
          - : Irrelevant/neglected in the WTSP Catalogs (25 sites)    
      For each site: site name, URL of the site domain, and number of TRIZ-related pages in the site are shown.

(4) These results (2) and (3) may give us a rough image of the World WTSP Catalog, but they must be extended and revised much from now on, in various aspects including:
       Further survey with the keyword TRIZ,
       Survey with relevant keywords, such as Innovat*, Creat*, Method*, Invent*, Patent*, Think*, etc.
       Survey with other relevant specific keywords,
       Survey of sites written in various other languages,
       Survey of sites playing local but important roles,
       Descriptions of introductions to individual sites,
       Evaluation of individual sites,

(5) WTSP Catalogs can be built only by the collaboration of bottom-up and top-down works.
Namely, we need to survey and describe individual sites and to obtain and display the overall views of all the sites in location/language/category/application etc.
We wish you to contribute to the WTSP project in your own favorite/talented ways.

(6) At the end of March, we are going to post the interim reports of the Team formation and the manuscripts of Country WTSP Catalogs of all the countries.
Unfortunately, I have seldom received such information so far from individual countries.
Please upload such a report in our Bitrix24 Platform, or send it to me via email by the end of March.

Looking forward to hearing from you,         Best wishes,     Toru

Dear TRIZ Leaders/Colleagues,
WTSP pages were updated yesterday in the "TRIZ Home Page in Japan".

  Selected TRIZ Sites written in Russian   (Michael Orloff)   (Mar. 12; Mar. 13; Mar. 15; Mar. 16, 2019)

  Michael Orloff ==>  TN    Mar. 12, 2019

Dear Toru, I have fallen into customer project again but I try looking into Internet for WTSP.

1) The list "SearchTRIZ-Yahoo-World-inRussian-190307A" from your message of March 7 is really too short and weak in content. I have accumulated a little bit better sites but it is necessary to supplement and edit my list.

2) maybe you know it, but I send you some article about TRIZ dissemination writen by Bradford L. Godense .

  Michael Orloff ==>  TN    Mar. 13, 2019

Thank you, dear Toru!
Now I am just working for my Russian list remembering the deadline of 16th of March. But it is very difficult for me to complete my search untill this date.

Also I have looked new list in English from you. I have found several sites new for me but in whole the list does not contain many key sites in English. That is strange for me and maybe for reader who would like to get a picture of World web-sites :((
Kind regards, Michael

  Michael Orloff ==>  TN    Mar. 15, 2019

Dear Toru, last days I could not devote time to new seaching but could only select from some sites the best.

I know that this list is not perfect and not full, to my own surprise.
Completing such list requires much more time and attention.
And I did what I could, sorry.     Kind regards, Michael

  Michael Orloff ==>  TN    Mar. 16, 2019

Dear Toru, This morning, on my birthday, I found 1 hour and looked at the Internet in Russian again.

Suddenly I have found several interesting and also important web-sites in Russian
So, I send version 2 for you.       Kind regards, Michael


 

  [WTSP] Survey of ТРИЗ sites in Russian language in the world (106 sites)

(Toru Nakagawa ==> Michael Orloff and 6 other Russian TRIZ leaders   Mar. 8, 2019

I have just made another Preliminary Search for TRIZ sites in the Russian Language and obtained an apparently much better result.
The survey result is shown in the Word file attached.
     (a) Survey Keyword: ТРИЗ
     (b) Language of the sites: Russian
     (c) Location of the sites: Not specified (the whole world)
     (d) Searcher's location: Not used (i.e., neutral from Japan)
     (e) Search engine: Yahoo.japan
     (f) Option: Only one representative page is shown for a site, with URL for the search of pages inside the site

106 sites are listed, with 2-3 lines per site.
I can't read Russian but the results seems pretty reasonable.

Could you please check the survey results and make it a new base for our (or your) further survey of TRIZ sites for the WTSP Catalogs?
      Does the URL of the option (f) work in your environment?
      Do you know any other search engine providing the option (f)?
      Or do you know any method to produce the URL directly by using any site domain?

Can you convert this survey results into English by using some machine translator?

Maybe I should do similar surveys for sites in English language in the whole world, sites in French language in the whole world, etc.

Just a quick report, hoping initiation of collaborative work of Russian speaking TRIZ colleagues.
Best wishes, Toru

(Toru Nakagawa, Posting in LinkedIn: Mar. 4, 2019)  (Posted here: Mar. 18, 2019)

WTSP is ‘World TRIZ Sites Project’ initiated in Dec. 2017. You may see its Aims, Summary slides in PDF, and up-to-date activities in our WTSP pages inside “TRIZ Home Page in Japan”.

It is a cooperative voluntary work in the global scale for:

(a) Surveying TRIZ (and relevant methodologies) sites,
(b) Visiting them one by one to describe introductions,
(c) Selecting reliable, useful, and important sites among them, and
(d) Publicly posting them in WTSP Catalogs of individual countries and
(e) Publicly posting World WTSP Catalog of further selected sites,
for many people, e.g., the unfamiliar, beginners, users, and experts, etc. in TRIZ.

(1) We currently have 83 Members from 31 countries, as posted .

But the WTSP team formation and actual jobs of making the Country WTSP Catalogs are not proceeding smoothly in most of the countries.  We are now at a critical stage of initialization.

 (2) Difficulties are clear from the beginning: 

All the active leaders/colleagues working for/with TRIZ are very busy for their jobs.  We can't expect an enough number of 'fully-involved' Members.
The strategy of WTSP is:   We should get many more Members who would contribute to WTSP using their time squeezed from their busy job schedule. Under the coordination by some members (i.e., Country Editors, Region Editors, Global Co-editors), the actual tasks (a) to (e) can be achieved by many Members together in parallel.
Since every TRIZ leader/colleague has voluntarily chosen TRIZ as the guiding principle for his/her job and life, achieving the WTSP aims matches his/her job/life purposes. Introducing TRIZ to people and proliferating it in the world can be achieved much better by collaboration of TRIZ leaders/colleagues than by separate competing works by them.  

(3) Recent communications between Michael Orloff and myself are posted in our Web site.  

He is one of Global Co-editors, and started to survey TRIZ sites in Russia in Russian language.   He has found my results of Preliminary Internet Search (of TRIZ sites in Russia in Russian/English/French/German/Spanish languages) are messy, noisy,  and yet insufficient because of missing important sites.
-- Yes, they are. But they are practically the best Internet survey for ordinary users can perform. The list shows only one representative page of each site, and shows the URL for carrying out further search inside the site. [Otherwise you will get many similar pages from a site.] (See the Preliminary Searches of TRIZ sites in 33+ countries   in the table posted in my Web site.)
(I now think search for TRIZ sites in Russia in Russian language, or for TRIZ sites in the whole world in Russia language may be more useful. We should note, however, the results of such searches can be different when we do the same search in Japan, in Russia, and in USA, etc. because of possible difference in the weight calculation in the search engine.)

 He wants to have a flat list of good sites.  
-- I made an annotated list of "Selected 120 TRIZ Sites in the World" in 2008 .  However, it may be 'old' and insufficient. About half of the sites may be still active and worthy of listing, but the other half might have gone. And probably 100 or more new sites we should include in our World WTSP Catalogs.

He asked me what is our main goal in WTSP. and I answered:
-- Our main goal is to introduce reliable and useful TRIZ-related Web sites to various people. 'Properly selected sites' we should pursue instead of 'many sites with somewhat poor selection'.

All these discussions may apply to the cases in various countries.

 (4) Anyway, please try a Web search (or any other method) for yourself to find reliable and useful TRIZ related sites in your country and in the world. Then you will see the problem, and you will find what to do.

-- Cooperation with many TRIZ leaders/colleagues in the WTSP project is a practical solution, we believe.

You and any other persons are welcome to WTSP.  Let's work Together ! Connected !!
