Finding Solutions > Brainwriting Pool

Renderas:sect2. Brainwriting Pool

This technique maximizes task orientation and minimizes interpersonal conflict and pressure to conform. First, team members generate ideas silently and write them down. Then team members swap ideas for further inspiration.

  1. State the issue or problem.

  2. Instruct team members to write down their ideas on a sheet of paper. No discussion is allowed.

  3. After listing four ideas, team members place their papers in the middle of the table and exchange them for someone else's. They then examine the new sheet and add any new ideas or modifications.

  4. Continue the exchange, still in silence, until an agreed-upon time limit is reached.

  5. Collect the papers. Review and evaluate the ideas at a later time.
