I work at home, alone for the most part, which means I rarely have the opportunity to be involved in a good brainstorming session. That's a shame because I absolutely love the process. One idea leads to another one and suddenly the room is filled with amazing creative energy and things "to do."
So, as you can imagine, I thought it was cool to see this list come up in my feed, design firm IDEO's seven "Brainstorming Rules":
1. Defer judgement
2. Encourage wild ideas
3. Build on the ideas of others
4. Stay focused on the topic
5. One conversation at a time
6. Be visual
7. Go for quantity
Over at IDEO U, the firm's online school for design thinking, they've gone a little deeper on how to be the most effective with brainstorming. This video they made does a good job showing how their techniques work in action:
