Need a large quantity of ideas in a short amount of time? Brain writing might be the ideal solution. Gather up a group of thinkers and watch the ideas pour forth.
Brain writing is a brainstorming solution that uses the power of a group to generate a large quantity of ideas. Here's one way to get started: simply identify a moderator, gather six participants with paper and pens/pencils and follow these simple instructions:
Gather your participants together in a room, along with your moderator.
After 5 minutes have passed, hand your thoughts over to one of the other participants. Someone will hand you his/her thoughts as well.
Read through the ideas you received and use them as a starting point to generate an additional three ideas inside of five minutes.
Voila! After six rounds/30 minutes, your group will have generated 108 ideas...and will probably need a cold pitcher of water.
