  Simon Dewulf (Australia) ==> Toru Nakagawa   Aug. 8, 2016

Hi Toru, Hope all is well. Thanks for your newsletter.

I had a good presentation on how to prove triz with BIG Patent Data in the German TRIZ conference.
I have attached the slides for your viewing.  [Not shown here.]

Regards, Simon Dewulf         (CEO AULIV) 


  Wayne Mallinson (South Africa) ==> Toru Nakagawa   Aug. 25, 2016

Dear Professor Toru Nahagawa, I met you at the Triz Future 2015 conference in Berlin. I am also an interested student and trainer in USIT.

Do you know if there are any International USIT certification standards or syllabus?

Do you have a working contact email address of Professor Ed Sickafus or any website and contact details of ntellect?   If so could you copy these to me - I am trying to contact Prof. Ed. Sickafus.

I have enjoyed you commentary and works and wonder if you will be going to TRIZ Future Conference 2016?

Regards, Wayne Mallinson

  Toru Nakagawa ==> Wayne Mallinson (South Africa) Aug. 25, 2016

Dear Wayne Mallinson, Thank you for your message and your interest in USIT.

(1) Dr. Ed Sickafus: ****  [Not shown here.]     He seem to have joined LinkedIn very recently.

(2) No international certification of USIT.

(3) My works of 'USIT Manual' and 'USIT Case Studies' and many other related articles posted in my Web site are the standards of USIT as a method of structured problem solving.   Dr. Sickafus has moved on to much intuitive and heuristic method.

(4) I'll be coming to TFC2016 at Wroclaw. Could you please use plain emails instead of LinkedIn messages?

Best wishes, Toru

  Shahid Saleem Arshad (Australia) ==> Toru Nakagawa   Sept. 13, 2016

Dear Prof. Nakagawa, I trust you and your family are in excellent health. 

I noticed that a rather long gap has appeared in my communication with you and I would like to send this message as a brief precursor.

In the most recent issue of the THPJ (11Sep16), you have included a message  "Do we have any methodology of Creative Research in academia?" (Posing the issue: A Professor, Jun. 26, 2016; Discussion: Toru Nakagawa (OGU), Jun. 30, 2016) 

This is an extremely important subject which I am glad the prominent professor has raised.  He further states that "Thus the methodologies like TRIZ and CrePS seem to have very little relevance/significance with the methods for promoting academic researches."   

I will get back to you with my own thoughts fairly soon.
With best wishes,  Shahid

 Toru Nakagawa ==> Shahid Saleem Arshad     Sept. 13, 2016

Dear Shahid, Thank you for your message.

Yes, the issue raised by A Professor is very important for the academia and for the TRIZ community.
I am very much looking forward to your discussion. You always respond to my articles at the points of the most significance.

Thanks. Best wishes, Toru

  Shireen Al - Jaouni (Jerusalem) ==> Toru Nakagawa   Sept. 18, 2016

Dear Professor Toru Nakagawa;  I hope this e-mail finds you well.

Best Regards;  Shireen Al - Jaouni
