I was honor to be invited by Dr. KS Chin (Asso. Professor, SEEM, CityU) to give a talk named “Quality Innovation Trend: Extenics – A Novel Innovation Theory and Methodology originated in China” to students of BEng Systems Engineering and Management (BEng SEM) on 16th April 2018. Dr. KS Chin and I took a photo before the lecture.
In the beginning, I introduced Hong Kong Society for Quality (HKSQ) vision, mission, value and history.
Then I briefed the quality innovation development in Hong Kong based on different associations and awards, as well as, government established status bodies to explain from Quality aspects to Innovation aspects.
After that I mentioned the China and Hong Kong policies on quality and innovation. In China, there were One Belt One Road, Great Bay Area and Made in China 2025, etc. In Hong Kong, we had Hong Kong-Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Park in the Lok Ma Chau Loop and Re-industrialization, etc.
Quality Innovation definition and meaning was described. And then I briefed the history development of quality and innovation tools included Brainstorming, Creatology, Six Thinking Hats, Thinkertoys, Design Thinking, TRIZ and USIT, as well as Extenics.
I mentioned how I met Prof. Cai Wen and learnt his original developed innovation theory named “Extenics” which included Extension Theory, Extension Method and Extension Engineer. Prof. Cai Wen selected this topic since 1976 and then used 7 years to develop the basic-element and Extenics Set in which created a new China original science subject. Moreover, I introduced the Extenics Set which could describe the dynamic classification under transformation.
Finally, I briefed the Basic-element, Extension Innovation Method (four steps) and the summary on extension innovation table.
At the end, we took a group photo with students for memory.
