Things to remember 
 

1.     Preparation. Make sure you have the right kit: flip charts, post-its, pens, time, the right people in the room

 

2.     Define the problem or the opportunity. Write up a statement describing this, but be careful that it doesn't suggest a solution as this will hinder idea generation

 

3.     Stand up, shift position, move around

 

4.     Use nonlinear note taking methods - post-its are great

 

5.     Aim for 20-30 ideas in 5-7 minutes

 

6.     100% participation is best e.g. all write on flip charts/post it notes

 

7.     Giving people permission to freewheel doesn't necessarily mean they have the learned skill to do so

 

8.     You should not plan a brainstorming session if you already have several solutions and all you want to do is to decide which one to use; this is best done by analysis

Great plan of action in facillitating brainstorming sessions.

SUCCESS: I heard that you take issue with the term “out-of-the-box thinking.” Is that true?

 

Tim Hurson: There seems to be this attitude that creative thinking or productive thinking is separate or apart from the way we should think normally.
