Chapter 18. Essential Tools > Facilitating Brainstorming

Facilitating Brainstorming

Another proven problem-solving tool is brainstorming. Facilitators use this technique to develop a “storm” of ideas in a structured format. It is most heavily used in steps 3 through 5 of the problem-solving steps. Brainstorms are most effective with groups ranging from three to eight people.

Brainstorming is effective as both a problem-solving tool and as a team builder. The team building benefits are derived from equal opportunity for participation from each team member and the subsequent trust developed from that involvement. The problem-solving value derives from the creativity and idea generation of different perspectives.
