Productive Brainstorming

To drive out the best solutions from our teams, we can follow a deliberate pattern when we solicit ideas and conduct brainstorms.

Be on the lookout for the following:

  1. Team members bring different strengths – Some folks are strong when it comes to creating the ideas while others have strength for executing the ideas…

  2. Psychologically safe environment – This is not a competition, this is about collaboration. Encourage sharing and respect.

  3. Inclusion – Put a limit the # of ideas that can be shared during someone’s turn. You need to go around the room (maybe several times!) so that everyone has a voice. (3.5 mins)
