Three Types of Brainstorming
: unstructured; few rules; free-for-all; someone should record ideas.
: start with no talking, silent period; assigned homework ahead; each individual presents own ideas; each member has a turn.
: shortens meetings, increases ideas, and reduces personalizing ideas because an idea’s author remains anonymous.
