Open up: Brainstorming techniques

Brainstorming techniques… thinking out of the box… it is difficult… especially if you are always with the same group or same place or same culture or….. bwah! Open up… must of us think it’s fun and appealing if our creative mind is called upon and challenged… by a problem, situation, proposal or quest… I found this article with seven great ideas:

  1. Avoid groupthinking and just email them with the question at hand
  2. Find 10-12 entrepreneurs and give them the problem to solve
  3. Let them play like kids (with Lego e.g.)
  4. Always carry writing cards to write your ideas down
  5. Take a break (from the problem, newsstream, situation, etc etc)
  6. Get the descision makers in the room
  7. Take your team out of the office
