Editor's Note (Toru Nakagawa, Sept. 9, 2006; Oct. 19, 2006) [Translated from Japanese, Oct. 20, 2006]

This article represents the full set of slides which Valery Krasnoslobodtsev presented at a special TRIZ Open Seminar in Tokyo on August 28, 2006.  Valery Kraev (i.e., the pen-name of the Author) visited Japan on the occasion of the 'Second TRIZ Symposium in Japan' (held by Japan TRIZ CB, on Aug. 31 through Sept. 2, 2006 at Suita, Osaka).  IDEA Co. Ltd. , a TRIZ consulting firm in Japan, held the Open Seminar in collaboration with myself.

Profile of Dr. Valery Krasnoslobodtsev was introduced in advance as follows:

Dr. Valery Krasnoslobodtsev was originally from Sankt Petersburg, Russia, and an expert of system control engineering and robotics. He has a carreer as Associate Professor of State Technical University at Sankt Petersburg, an industry engineer/manager, TRIZ specialist/consultant, etc.  Especially, during the period of 2001 through 2004, he guided the introduction, application, and penetration of TRIZ in Samsung Electronics Co., Korea, resulting in a big success.  Since 2004 he has been working as a TRIZ Consultant for Technical Innovation Center, USA

He has been publishing a series of TRIZ case-study papers based on his work at Samsung and others.  He gave a paper on wall-climbing robot last year at our First TRIZ Symposium in Japan.  His paper presented at TRIZCON2006 was of much interest reporting how to promote TRIZ.  Dr. Kraev is coming to visit Japan for the purpose of presenting a paper at the Second TRIZ Symposium in Japan to be held by Japan TRIZ CB. On this occasion, IDEA Co. is going to hold a special Open Seminar by Dr. Kraev in order for Japanese TRIZ people to have chances of listening to and discussing with him. 

As we found at the Seminar, his period of nondisclosure agreement with Samsung has just expired over two years after his finishing the consultancy.  Thus his presentation on the TRIZ promotion activities at Samsung Electronics was the real first for him to talk in its full scope.  His Seminar, with a not-low fee, attracted as many as 83 people from various industries in Japan.

While translating Kraev's slides into Japanese, I have understood that the Author led Samsung Electronics with a powerful strategy with a big vision and practical methodological approaches, having resulted in a great success.  The best key to promote TRIZ in the high-tech company was to apply TRIZ to real industrial projects and to show the results of success in the prototype solutions within 3 to 4 months, he says. Not only teaching TRIZ theories, but also applying them practically and producing inventive industrial solutions are his work. 

This Seminar had two parts: Part 1 is "For Managers", while Part 2 "For Engineers".  In order to produce good results in real industrial projects, as mentioned above, it is important to understand TRIZ and to apply it practically in engineering as explained in Part 2.  Even more importance in this Seminar, however, was found in the lecture of Part 1.  For many of you who are trying/promoting to introduce and apply TRIZ in industries, it should be a big task to make your (top) managers convinced about the merits of TRIZ and to let them promote it decisively for achieving innovations in your own industries.  Part 1 of this Seminar should be very helpful for you for this purpose.
