February's 2009 TRIZ Journal
February may be the shortest month of the year, but The TRIZ Journal is as busy as ever. Beyond February’s new articles, our chatty commentators and lively discussion forum will keep readers clicking, reading and sharing their own views and impressions about TRIZ and systematic innovation.
- Li Haijun has developed graphic models for the fourth class of standards, which should be particular useful for those new to TRIZ.
- Frequent contributor Darrell Mann is back using smart materials to solve contradictions.
- Dmitry Kucharavy and Roland De Guio examine forecasting in “Logistic Substitution Model and Technological Forecasting.”
- Guest commentator Herbert Roberts reported from the inaugural TRIZ Practitioners Exchange. Read his posts here: Day 1 and Day 2.
- I wrote about a general session talk on innovation at iSixSigma Live! Summit & Awards by BMGI President and CEO David Silverstein.
- Have you convinced someone that innovation is a good thing? Founding editor Ellen Domb is looking for stories in her commentary post, “Innovation Is Good?”
The 3rd Annual Open Innovation Conference is being held April 6-8, 2009 in Las Vegas; the theme is “Enhancing the Scope of Your Creative Enterprise through Co-Innovation Relationships.”

- Our commentators are always eager to hear your responses to their particular posts.
- If you’re confused about a TRIZ tool, post your question to the discussion forum and let the worldwide audience help.

Until March, happy TRIZ reading!
