Chapter 11. Let’s Make Steel > Create Many Options

Create Many Options

The two biggest problems that occur during this part of the process are that people limit themselves and offer premature judgments. Nothing kills the group’s progress faster than the person who constantly offers “That will never work” or “No way will this ever get accepted.” Put off limited thinking and judging while you create options. You will have plenty of time for that when you compare your options to the criteria. This is the time to have fun. Brainstorm ideas and options. Suggest options that are totally against your requirements to demonstrate your willingness to get all options out on the table. Play with the options by combining aspects of each. Pretend that you are in a different profession and ask yourself what options you would present. If you are working on an engineering problem, ask yourself how a farmer would solve the problem. Sometimes silly things lead to a different way of solving a problem.
