How to Brainstorm Your Future Idea, Blog or Website

If you think about anything we have, everything started with a spark of thought, that gets generated into an idea.

Brainstorming is a popular tool that helps you generate creative ideas and solutions to a problem.

Now you can multiply the spark of thought effect, by having a group brainstorming session.

Here is why group brainstorming is very important:

1) It can help you break out of plateau thinking, by contribution of the group, to make you think of new different ways to reach your goal or solve a solution…

2) It also helps you overcome many of the issues that can make group problem-solving a sterile and unsatisfactory process.

3) When correctly facilitated, with your team, it helps you bring the diverse experience of all team members into play during problem solving. This increases the richness of ideas explored, meaning that you can find better solutions to the problems you face.

4) It can also help you get buy in from team members for the solution chosen – after all, they were involved in developing it. What’s more, because brainstorming is fun, it helps team members bond with one-another as they solve problems in a positive, rewarding environment.

There is a quote I heard once, that says, and I might be paraphrasing:

What is Brainstorming:

According to Wikipedia, Brainstorming is a group creativity technique by which a group tries to find a solution for a specific problem by gathering a list of ideas spontaneously contributed by its members.

Brainstorming combines a relaxed, informal approach to problem-solving with lateral thinking. It asks that people come up with ideas and thoughts that can at first seem to be a bit crazy. The idea here is that some of these ideas can be crafted into original, creative solutions to the problem you’re trying to solve, while others can spark still more ideas. This approach aims to get people unstuck, by “jolting” them out of their normal ways of thinking.

During brainstorming sessions there should therefore be no criticism of ideas: You are trying to open up possibilities and break down wrong assumptions about the limits of the problem. Judgments and analysis at this stage stunt idea generation, and can lead to ineffective brainstorming session, where personal issues can overwhelm the session, which end up defeating the whole purpose of brainstorming.

Ideas should only be evaluated at the end of the brainstorming session – this is the time to explore solutions further using conventional approaches.

Brainstorming can be more effective when it is facilitated properly.

How to facilitate a brainstorming session:

There are many ways to facilitate brainstorming, and there are amazing points that you can refer to here…..
