Brainstorming For Productivity

Brainstorming:  create new ideas, solve problems, motivate and develop teams

Sometimes it’s very difficult to begin planning something new – because you don’t know where and how to start.   I feel that one technique that works well is brainstorming for productivity.

Planning a new venture, a presentation, or any new initiative, is generally much easier if you begin simply by thinking of ideas – in no particular order or structure – and jotting them down on a sheet of paper.

Doing this often helps me organize and prioritize my thoughts into goals and plans. This is personal brainstorming, and it can follow the same process as described above for groups.

Why Brainstorming?

Brainstorming with a group of people is a powerful technique ~ it’s basically the principle of “more heads are better than one.”

Brainstorming is a Win-Win

Brainstorming creates new ideas, solves problems, motivates and develops teams. Brainstorming motivates because it involves members of a team in bigger management issues, and it gets a team working together.

When you use brainstorming for productivity you will see excellent results in improving the organization, performance, and developing the team.

The brainstorming process

    • Define the objective.
    • Brainstorm ideas and suggestions.
    • Categorise/condense/combine/refine.
    • Assess/analyse effects or results.
    • Prioritise options/rank list as appropriate.
    • Agree action and time table.
    • Follow-up.
