brainstorming imageBrainstorming is an effective tool to cultivate creative job actions and solicit employees’ ideas to solve worksite problems. But there are certain guidelines that will make your brainstorming session more successful. It is important to ensure that you also have someone who can hold the team accountable to ensure these guidelines are followed otherwise, you are just NOT “Brainstorming”.

• No criticisms
• No evaluations
• Get ideas out; don’t discuss them
• Record all ideas
• Expect wild ideas
• Be spontaneous
• Suspend judgements
• Quantity, not quality, of ideas counts
• Build on each other’s ideas.

Happy Brainstorming!!
