Say No to Brainstorming!
Have you participated in, or perhaps run, brainstorming sessions only to be disappointed with the results? Do you find that brainstorms result in dozens of trivial ideas, few truly creative ideas and no implementation? If so, you are not alone! Traditional brainstorms have been proven to be an ineffective method for generating creative ideas!
Want a better approach? Try anticonventional thinking (ACT) which is based on the science of creativity and modelled after the way artists, writers, composers and other creative people collaborate on projects.
