    What Is Brainstorming?

    Brainstorming is the process where a team gathers to discuss and produce new ideas around a specific area of interest.

    How to Conduct a Brainstorming Session?

    • Invite the right people. Include members from the team or teams who are affected by and have the expertise on the problem or the subject brainstormed. Using Creately, you can facilitate an online brainstorming session allowing those who are working remotely to participate as well.
    • Clearly outline the brainstorming process and guidelines. Keep a flowchart highlighting the steps, so you can easily share it with anyone before starting the session.
    • Clarify the problem which you are trying to solve or the question you are trying to answer to the team. It will help you focus better during the session.
    • Set a logical time limit depending on the problem the team is trying to solve. Remember to state how long the session will last at the beginning.
    • While you can use visual frameworks such as mind maps, concept maps or fishbone diagrams to structure your brainstorming session. Use different colors or sticky notes to highlight ideas provided by various participants on the Creately workspace.
    • Use an affinity diagram to group ideas in a logical manner to identify themes and patterns in collected data for better analysis.
    • Once the session is complete, sort through ideas gathered to find the most promising ones. As necessary, refine, modify, and synthesize them and hold a vote to select an idea favored widely.
    • Prioritize the selected ideas and discuss the next set of steps you need to take to move the ideas along. Convert your mind map or idea tree to an action plan or a Kanban board on the same Creately workspace to keep context and content in the same place and centralize information and communication around your plans.
