Step 2 Find a neutral person to moderate the process

slide 6:

Brainstorm facilitating is a service. It is supposed to be a selfless act that enables others to arrive at their own solutions. http://www.ideachampions.com/weblogs/archives/2010/08/einstein_brains_1.shtml

slide 7:

A great facilitator  nurtures the conversation in its early stages  steps out of the way as the ideas start to flow  jumps in when energy starts to disappear. http://aneyewitness.wordpress.com/2008/04/08/eureka/

slide 8:

The client should not be in charge of running the meeting. They must keep their heads in the content and not worry about or unduly influence the process. https://hbr.org/2012/07/yes-you-can-brainstorm-without/

slide 11:

3 advantages of Internet brainstorming Advantage 1: On the Internet people who talk a lot don’t disturb others because they are not heard. Advantage 2: On some brainstorming sites for example http://answergarden.ch/ ideas are anonymously communicated. Thereby less dominant people can easier communicate their ideas. Advantage 3: On some brainstorming sites for example http://www.brainfloor.com/ people are not exposed to each others’ ideas in the idea generation phase. That may increase the diversity of ideas. https://hbr.org/2015/04/why-brainstorming-works-better-online

slide 12:

Try an unusual location for example a zoo. http://www.imagebase.net/Nature/Deer-071-copy http://www.destination-innovation.com/articles/top-tips-for-a-great-brainstorm-session/

slide 13:

Step 4 Invite both external and internal participants to increase diversity

slide 14:

The broader the mix of participants the more interesting the ideas are likely to be. http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/management/article6985219.ece

slide 15:

Pick people who can answer the question you’re asking. http://www.mckinsey.com/insights/strategy/seven_steps_to_better_brainstorming

slide 16:

Aspects of diversity  Skill diversity.  Thinking style diversity.  Experience diversity.  Age diversity.  Nationality diversity.  Gender diversity. https://hbr.org/2009/05/how-to-lead-better-brainstormi/ http://www.heidrick.com//media/Publications20and20Reports/HS_EuropeanCorpGovRpt2011.pdf

slide 17:

What about including external people http://designshack.co.uk/articles/inspiration/10-tips-for-effective-creative-brainstorming http://www.destination-innovation.com/articles/top-tips-for-a-great-brainstorm-session/

slide 18:

Research shows that bringing together individuals with diverse backgrounds can enhance the flow of ideas making people more open to new information and finding ways to integrate it into solutions. http://sloanreview.mit.edu/article/the-discipline-of-creativity/

slide 19:

Ask participants to independently prepare ideas before the brainstorm. That helps introverted people get the quietness they need to develop good ideas. http://www.bnet.com/article/the-right-way-to-brainstorm/68480 http://www.slideshare.net/columnfive/10-tips-for-a-successful-group-brainstorm http://www.fastcompany.com/886945/10-rules-effective-brainstorming2

slide 20:

Step 5 Communicate values of the brainstorm

slide 21:

The power of group brainstorming comes from creating a safe place where people with different ideas can share blend and extend their diverse knowledge. http://www.businessweek.com/innovate/content/jul2006/id20060726_517774.htm

slide 22:

No criticism. No negative judgments. No distractions. http://www.ideachampions.com/weblogs/archives/2011/01/most_people_thi.shtml http://www.triz-journal.com/content/c080901a.asp http://www.business-strategy-innovation.com/wordpress/2010/12/10-steps-to-successful-brainstorming/ http://www.fastcompany.com/886945/10-rules-effective-brainstorming3 Pittampalli Al: Read this before our next meeting location 405.

slide 28:

Step 7 Develop ideas

slide 29:

Brainstorming should begin with individuals working alone first. Michael J. Gelb: Creativity on demand page 178.

slide 30:

As ideas participants can also bring in products / materials / things they find relevant. http://www.fastcompany.com/886945/10-rules-effective-brainstorming8

slide 31:

During the first 5 to 10 minutes ask participants to individually write down as many ideas as they can for example on sticky notes. Thereby introverts maximize their contribution. http://sloanreview.mit.edu/article/the-discipline-of-creativity/

slide 32:

http://www.inc.com/christina-desmarais/this-simple-trick-can-make-you-more-creative.html

slide 33:

Divide people up in teams of about 5 people – each led by a facilitator. http://sloanreview.mit.edu/article/the-discipline-of-creativity/

slide 34:

Get people standing and active. Studies show that during walks creative output can increase as much as 60. https://hbr.org/2015/11/stop-calling-every-conversation-a-meeting http://www.inc.com/laura-montini/study-provides-a-great-reason-to-go-for-a-walking-meeting.html-

slide 37:

Studies show that the most revolutionary solutions spring from group discussion of ideas hatched in isolation. http://thebuildnetwork.com/team-building/brainstorming-individual-group/

slide 38:

After having done some minutes of brainstorming the moderator could interrupt participants and ask them to do something completely unrelated to brainstorming for example take a walk around the building. Then the moderator gives participants some more time in a room to focus on developing more ideas. http://www.inc.com/christina-desmarais/this-simple-trick-can-make-you-more-creative.html

slide 39:

Step 8 Categorize ideas

slide 40:

The moderator - or someone else - categorizes the ideas that have been developed.
