Innovation is the lifeblood of business today. And innovation is fueled by ideas - lots and lots of fresh, new ideas.
If you're like most people, you and your team rely on brainstorming to generate and develop ideas. But traditional brainstorming is an outdated, fundamentally flawed process, typically poorly planned and facilitated, lacking in structure and effective techniques and vulnerable to disruptive personalities. In fact, fewer than 10% of those leading brainstorms, in any industry, have had any training whatsoever in how to do it.
The result? An experience that is all-too-often disappointing and frustrating. And worse, the inability to consistently generate a stream of fresh new ideas can seriously threaten the very life of an organization.
