Description Long

Brainstorming serves to generate many ideas in as short a time as possible. These ideas are organised and tested for their quality in subsequent steps.

It is suitable for coming up with ideas during the starting phase of the project, or for less complicated questions.


Find a topic or question.

Introduce participants to the topic.

Set deadlines.


Hints from experience

For brainstorming, it is essential for all the participants to collect ideas of their own, on the relevant subject, otherwise, they might get lost while thinking about the ideas of others. This way, more introverted individuals also get the chance to contribute, without being left out by the extroverts.
