When I think of creativity, brainstorming pops out as a natural easy activity. All you need to do is:
- defer judgment while generating ideas
- generate as many ideas as possible
- record ideas as they occur
- elaborate or improve upon these ideas
In other words, splatter as many off-the-wall ideas as possible up onto a white board without thinking twice about them. To further amplify your success, you can apply the SCAMPER technique:
- Magnify & modify
- Put to other uses
- Rearrange & reverse
And when it’s all said and done, you can create a nice pretty bubble chart for everyone to see.
It almost sounds complicated.
