Editor's Note (Toru Nakagawa, Jun. 21, 2019)

This is the 3rd trial of the '3rd round' Preliminary Internet Search of TRIZ-related Web sites in a wider scope.  The sites written in English and located in the whold world are surveyed. 

Extending the preceding (3A2) case, the key words are set as: 
      (Creative OR innovative OR Systematic) Problem Solve (Method OR Process OR Technique).
In this setting, the former theme 'Creative Thinking' is extended toward more objective one, i.e., 'Creative Problem Solving'; thus many more practical Web sites have obtained in the present survey. 

This page is designed similar to the previous page of the (3A2) case: 
In the present page, the process of searching and handling the sites is described first , and then the Web sites obtained with significance are shown in a simple tabular form where the sites are re-arranged according to the importance in our WTSP Catalogs. 

A .docx file is attached to show some more details of the individual sites.  The initial part of the .docx file (describing the ◎ and ○ sites) is illustrated as examples at the bottome of this HTML page

  Preliminary Internet Search (3B) of TRIZ-related Sites in a wider scope

Preliminary Search for WTSP sites widely in the English Language in the whole world
(3B) Keyword: (Creative OR innovative OR Systematic) Problem Solve (Method OR Process OR Technique)
Jun. 21, 2019,      Toru Nakagawa   

 

The conditions of survey: 

(a) Survey Keyword:  (Creative OR innovative OR Systematic) Problem Solve (Method OR Process OR Technique)
(b) Language of the sites:  English
(c) Location of the sites:  Not specified (i.e., 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 for TRIZ-related pages inside the site
(g) Browser:   Firefox

Results:

179 sites are listed, with 2-3 lines per site.  Recorded in a Word file.
Underlined words have hyperlinks, which are active (at least in my environment)
Note:  URL of option (f) is the hyperlink attached to : このサイト内で検索
         Survey again with the keyword  site:[URL of the site domain]  (Creative OR innovative OR Systematic) Problem Solve (Method OR Process OR Technique).

Note:  The search result this time looks very good, and relevant.

 Further working process: 

Visit the representative page, and then the top page of the site, and several more pages of the site quickly. 

Name of the site and URL of the site are recorded.
--- This record of site title is placed before the page title output by the search engine. 

For most of the sites, the description in 'About us' and similar pages are quoted here, for obtaining the rough idea of the sites. 

Following the Practice Guide posted recently, information of Site Location, Site Language, and Roles of the site are recorded.  However, Site Location is not easy to find in many cases, and Site Languages (especially besides English) are not checked thoroughly.  The two information need to be examined later.  In the present case, I put much attention in finding the Roles of the site.  (The 'About us' pages are useful to find the Roles.)

Then the sites are roughly evaluated, with the evaluation symbols:  ◎ ○ ☐ △ -

  Note:  In cases of two marks together, they mean evaluation choices not sure yet.  E.g., □△ means '□or △'.

  Note:    L:  Already listed elsewhere
               Duplication of sites in various survey outputs is not checked closely. This duplication problem need to be handled later when we integrate the documents from many defferent Teams.

Note:  There are many Web sites in the fields where I am not so familiar (e.g., social networks, blogs, etc., especially in USA).
       Thus the present evaluation should be regarded tentative and need to be checked by other people familiar in these various fields.

Interim Search Results for the World WTSP Catalog:

Sites are now re-arranged according to the grade ◎ ○ □ △ -.  

 ◎ :  Most important in the World WTSP Catalog  =====  ( 8 sites,  including 7 already listed sites)
    ◎○:                                            ( 2 sites,  including 1 already listed site)  

○ :  Important in the World WTSP Catalog      ======  ( 15 sites,  including 5 already listed sites)
    ○□:                                             ( 11 sites,  including 2 already listed sites)  

☐ :  Worthy  in the World WTSP Catalog       =====  ( 58 sites,  including 7 already listed sites)
    □△:                                            (  6 sites,  including  0 already listed sites)  

△ :  Worthy  in Country WTSP Catalogs       =====   ( 31 sites,  including 1 already listed sites)
    △-:                                             ( 1 sites,   including 0 already listed sites)   

- :  Irrelevant/neglected in the WTSP Catalogs   ====    ( 39 sites,  including 0 already listed sites)

For each site, the description of "About us" are exerted from the site and shown.
The page shown by the search engine is now deleted, because of no significant value left. 

In the Web site "TRIZ Home Page in Japan", the sites evaluated as ◎ ○ □ △ are shown in a tabular form.

Further tasks to be done:

Visit individual sites again and describe its introduction in 5-10 lines.

About: Our organization: TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

Our Mission: Spread ideas: TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On TED.com, we're building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world's most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.  In fact, everything we do — from our Conferences to our TED Talks to the projects sparked by The Audacious Project, from the global TEDx and TED Translators communities to the TED-Ed lesson series — is driven by this goal: How can we best spread great ideas?
