Consulting module: Brainstorming

Collecting ideas in a brainstorming session is an easy and well-known method. The Consultants express a great variety of ideas that might be helpful to the Case Presenter.

In order to increase the number of ideas and to extend the effectiveness of brain-storming, the Consultants should obey the following essential rules of brainstorming:

  • Every idea is allowed!
  • Ideas of other participants can be taken and modified!
  • No negative comments on any given idea!
  • Quantity before quality!

Since a brainstorming session always results in a lot of ideas, a “secretary” should take notes of every idea.
