 WTSP Catalogs :   Enhancing the World WTSP Catalogs of (C) Around-TRIZ Sites (Toru Nakagawa) (Apr. 1; Apr. 11; Apr. 27; May 9; May 18; Jun. 3, 2022)

We wish to make the World WTSP Catalogs really Useful and Attractive for learning different and abundant approaches to Creative Problem Solving and Innovation in the world.  We have 3 main routes for such cooperative work: (1) Building Counntry WTSP Catalogs (of TRIZ sites at first) in each country, (2) Getting Introductions of individual sites written by the site owners themselves (in the Standard Form and optional closer description), and (3) Improving the survey results of Around-TRIZ websites.  Whenever such manuscripts are submitted, I am ready to post them one by one in this WTSP website.  I am going to work along Route 3 for myself, and post the results step by step in this page. 

 Revised the Survey TN3A2 (Creative Think Method) of Around-TRIZ Sites  (Toru Nakagawa) (Apr. 1, 2022)

Visiting all the sites in TN3A2 again, their site introductions are enhanced (especially for □ sites).  Both the Index page ( Index-TN3A2.html) and Site Description page ( Sites-TN3A2.html) are fully updated.  These updates are naturally reflected in the World WTSP Catalogs (except the Print-type Catalogs).  The following 10 sites are newly evaluated at the ○ level:  TN3A2-20 Peter Fisk, TN3A2-21 The Creativity Post, TN3A2-22 Mind Tools,  TN3A2-36 Simplicable (by John Spacey),  TN3A2-42 IQ Matrix (by Adam Sicinski),  TN3A2-71 Fairfax County Public Schools,  TN3A2-61 Fast Company, TN3A2-84, NCBI (National Center for Biology Information),  TN3A2-85 ToolsHero. 

 Revised the Survey TN3B (Creative Problem Solve) of Around-TRIZ Sites  (Toru Nakagawa) (Apr. 11, 2022)

 WTSP Catalogs :   UK Part of the World WTSP Catalogs Has Been Built as an Example of Country WTSP Catalogs (Toru Nakagawa) (Mar. 2, 2022)

Manuscript of the UK WTSP Catalogs has been built and incorporated as the UK Part of the World WTSP Catalogs.  The raw data of the 4th-round Internet survey of TRIZ Sites located in the United Kingdom are used to visit the 39 websites one by one to write brief introductions.  We have found 5 ◎, 1 ○, 8 □, and 1 △ TRIZ Sites, and 2 ◎, 3 ○, 6 □, and 3 △ Around-TRIZ Sites from this survey.  The data already posted in the WTSP Catalogs (i.e., 2nd-round survey (TN2A, TN2F) for TRIZ sites and 3rd-round survey (TN3A2, TN3B, TN3C, TN3D, and TN3E) for Around-TRIZ sites) are also used to pick up the UK sites.  Thus the UK WTSP Catalogs contain 6 ◎, 5 ○, 9 □, and 1 △ TRIZ Sites and 4 ◎, 13 ○, 31 □, and 3 △ Around-TRIZ Sites.  Index Table of all these sites and Site descriptions of them are incorporated as the UK Part of the World WTSP Catalogs (even though the Index part of the World Catalogs are not updated yet).  We wish TRIZ colleagues in UK to revise and enhance the list of sites and the descriptions of individual sites. 
We can learn a lot from all these websites. Especially the ◎ websites are: The TRIZ Journal, Systematic Innovation Inc., Oxford Creativity. CORE for TRIZ; and Project Smart, Managing Innovation (John Bessant), My Mooc, Science Direct for Around-TRIZ.  [There may be many good websites missing in the list.  I notice Bio-TRIZ site (◎) is a case of missing. ]

 WTSP Catalogs Introduction:   Introduction to World WTSP Catalogs of TRIZ Sites and Around-TRIZ Sites (Toru Nakagawa) (Jan. 24, 2022)

This is an Introduction for ordinary users without assuming any knowledge about WTSP or its Catalogs.  Originally written in 23 slides and posted in HTML and in PDF.  Here is its Abstract:

(1) Catalogs of TRIZ-related Websites in the World have been developed by a volunteer-based international project WTSP.
(2) The Catalogs are now available publicly without charge both for  interactive use at the WTSP site and for downloading, printing, and interactive use at user's PC.
(3) The Catalogs cover various websites in the fields of TRIZ (including modernized TRIZ) and around-TRIZ more widely (i.e., creative problem solving in general, including quality/value/project management, IP, etc.).
(4) Various websites dedicated for the roles of information sending, research, development, promotion, publishing, etc. of such TRIZ-related methodologies are collected.
(5) Websites are found more useful as units of information resources than (smaller) webpages, papers, patents, etc. and (larger) journals, conferences, books, etc., because they are kept updated for many years with unity/quality/scope of information by some group or organization, in openly accessible forms.
(6) Individual websites are introduced briefly by surveyors/recommenders, and in one-page standard form and (optionally) much longer by the website owners. 
(7) Websites are evaluated in respect to their quality/usefulness/attractiveness/ accessibility/scopes/etc. and shown in 5 grades (◎○□ for world level, △ for country level, and -).
(8) Current World WTSP Catalogs (Beta Edition)  list 23 ◎  and 39 ○ websites in TRIZ while 33 ◎  and 127 ○ websites around TRIZ. 
(9) We are working further to make our WTSP Catalogs more useful and attractive for users as well as professionals by voluntary cooperation of many colleagues in the world.
(10) Let's work Together ! Connected !!

You may use the Catalogs interactively at the WTSP website, or download the Catalogs for Print (in PDF) and print them or use them interactively on your own PC just as on the WTSP website.  You can operate the Catalogs easily, because the catalogs are simply tables of websites having hyperlinks to the description of those sites.
