What It Is Used For
- To generate a “storm” of ideas or thoughts.
When to Use It
- Anytime a team/group needs to identify sources of data, potential causes of problems, or possible solutions.
- Establish a clear objective for the brainstorming session to ensure the group is focused.
- Round-robin brainstorming works best. Each person offers one, and only one, idea in turn. This keeps an individual from monopolizing the session.
