and use the 3 steps listed above: gather ideas from your team, discuss and combine related ideas, then vote on the best ones to prioritize as action steps in your workflow.
How do you run an effective brainstorming session?
The best way to get the most out of a brainstorming session is to make sure that team members come to the meeting prepared with their ideas so that the meeting can focus on the flow of ideas, rather than ideation. It is also useful to adopt a problem solving lens and keep an open mind to creative solutions that might come up during the discussion.
How do you brainstorm online?
A lot of brainstorming is done online, especially with remote teams becoming more common. A good way to keep everything on track is to use a template that communicates expectations, big picture goals, and how the team will prioritize ideas clearly. The facilitator should also ensure that all stakeholders get a chance to participate.
