Brainstorming is a technique for gathering a wide variety of ideas.

Guidelines:
  • All ideas will be written down
  • There are no "bad" ideas
  • Don't worry about what it would cost
  • Don't worry about who would do it
  • Move quickly to get as many ideas as possible
  • Don't get bogged down in evaluating any one idea
  • Brainstorming is not about evaluating; it is about generating ideas
  • "Wild" ideas are OK, and can often lead to other ideas
  • Don't worry about or keep track of who offered an idea
  • Don't categorize the ideas into group; just let them happen
  • Don't sift through the list. Keep everything that is mentioned
  • No one "owns" and idea, either for discussion or for later implementation
