Where is the world people are interested in problem solving?

Have you ever asked yourself where in the world people are the most interested in problem solving and investing in innovation? If you try searching this topic on the internet, you will find a lot of interesting information with statistics and indexes. There are bunch of complex calculations to get these indexes and scores based on many different parameters, such as R&D Intensity, Patent Activity and so on. Here, we want to take a different look at this, and show what our statistics show.

Our website, PRIZ Guru, is fully dedicated to problem-solving & innovation. The blogs and other content are targeting the same, problem-solving, and innovation.

Like almost any other website in the world, we are collecting some basic statistical data about the website visitors, and we can use this data and a tool for this small investigation. The data that we are taking into account is where are visitors coming from, and which pages they are visiting. We pulled data from Google Analytics for the last 100 days of website sessions stats and got pretty interesting results.

We only want to publish this data, and leave it to you to make the conclusions.

Countries with the most unique visits

Here we can see that we had the most visitors from USA. Let’s dig a bit deeper into US.

States breakdown within USA

The chart below shows the data breakdown of states having a statistically significant number of unique sessions normalized by the population in each state.

Unique sessions per country normalized by the population

In the chart of states breakdown in USA, we normalized the data by the population. Let’s do the same for the first, global, chart.

Visits share normalized by the country population:

What is the topic of interest?

We separated all our blogs into different topics and analyzed the number of unique sessions that tells us the general interest:

It is interesting that “Tasks priority management with Urgency-Important Matrix (UIM)” has an extremely high percentage and became the most popular topic in the current problem solving world. A possible explanation could be the fact that the approach and UIM tool within our platform is very trivial and easy to use.

The next on the list are “Root cause analysis” and “Problem statement definition”.

“Customer needs definition” topic is very important and useful since it directs the innovator to possible new applications. Nevertheless, this topic and our tool Action Prevention Action (APA) received a relatively low score. This is because the tool and approach are not trivial and requires a lot of thinking.

Become a problem solver. This is the only way to survive in the current situation and in the post-pandemic period. PRIZ Innovation Platform is here to help with exactly that.

Good luck.
