The Worldwide Popularity For Innovation Related Search Terms And Triz Is Dropping

is a mixed-message news flash for TRIZ and Innovation connoisseurs. The
general popularity of specific innovation-related keywords as a Google
search term is high but they have been steadily trending down since
2004. The bad economy and recession are not directly linked with this
drop since innovation topics have been falling out of favor as a search
pursuit a few years before the housing bust and bad economy arrived on
the scene.

is the Science of Inventive Problem Solving, which was developed by the
Soviet inventor and science fiction author Genrich Altshuller and his
colleagues, in 1946. It is based on the premise that great creativity
can be a learned skill. It has a solid group of followers in many
countries. It gives optimism for a more innovative future and hopes that
the best ideas do not always have to come out of highly funded “Think
Tanks” or from innovation geniuses.

Any search analysis of short
terms and especially acronyms like TRIZ are risky because the acronyms
can mean many different things in different countries than what a web
searcher might actually be looking for. For example, the average monthly
web searches for “TRIZ” in Brazil was incredibly high (74,000) in 2011.
That would make Brazil the #1 country fan of Innovation-Based TRIZ, if
it were true. However, Innovation-TRIZ interest is not what it seems in
Brazil for a few different reasons. TRIZ is the name of an ESPN TV
sports program in Brazil. “POR UM TRIZ” is a movie title (Out of Time)
released in Brazil starring Denzel Washington and POR UM TRIZ is part of
the lyrics of a popular song. The word TRIZ also appears to be the name
of a music band in Brazil, the name of an antihistamine, a brand of
glue in South America, a Chinese Export firm, etc.

Due to these
issues, estimated Innovation-TRIZ popularity numbers in Brazil should be
reduced by a figure of 70,000 searches per month for 2011. That puts an
accurate assessment of worldwide TRIZ popularity in 8th place when
compared to 21 other business improvement initiatives.

to data from the Google Keyword Tool, there is an average of 246,000
worldwide searches that were initiated each month in 2011 on the web for
the Business and Industrial search category for TRIZ. I estimate that
the true Innovation-TRIZ interest is more accurately set as 176,000, due
to the other uses for the term TRIZ, as mentioned before. The adjusted
2011 TRIZ popularity rank is shown below with the numbers for the
average number of Google web searches in 2011 for TRIZ and 23 other
Business Improvement Initiatives.

impressive as the bulk of monthly worldwide searches were in 2011 for
specific innovation-related terms (see rank list below), they have all
seen a 25 – 67% drop in popularity since 2004. The rank list below shows
the average monthly search volume for specific term for 2011. As seen
here, TRIZ is not yet at par with other common innovation words rolling
through the minds of worldwide web searchers. Altshuller, the founder of
TRIZ, does not attract much attention. If the TRIZ founder’s full name
“Genrich Altshuller” were tested for popularity, the numbers drop even
further than what is shown on the list below.

1. Patent …6,120,000

2. Innovation …4,090,000

3. Invention …3,350,000

4. Creativity …1,000,000

5. TRIZ …246,000

6. Altshuller …720

Trends” and “Google Insights for Search” tools were used to determine
the popularity trends for TRIZ and other innovation-related terms. In
spite of this grand number of searches initiated each month by the
would-be innovators of the world, interest in TRIZ and its founder
Genrich Altshuller is down 55% since 2004. Other business improvement
initiatives do not appear to be stealing fans away from TRIZ since most
of their numbers are also down sharply since 2004. TRIZ is not the only
creativity-based search words that are waning in popularity. This short
list of other similar search terms might be a signal that other
priorities are displacing innovation topics as a popular interest and
pursuit in life and business:

1. Patent …down 67%

2. Invention …down 60%

3. TRIZ …down 55%

4. Altshuller …down 55%

5. Creativity …down 40%

6. Innovation …down 25%

below are the actual average monthly searches in 2011 for the top 21
countries of the world for the word TRIZ included in a Google search.
Brazil numbers were adjusted from 74,000 to 4,000 as mentioned
previously to show its true interest in Innovation-TRIZ compared to
other non-innovation uses for the search term TRIZ in Brazil.

1. USA …18,100

2. Mexico …12,100

20. Peru …2,900

21. Turkey …2,900

popularity as a search term in the top 3 interested countries on the
above list (USA, Mexico and Germany) also shows a 50 – 65% decline since
2004. Maybe it is time for innovation experts to find out how to make
true innovation more attractive and successful for the masses.
