Weekly Tip Three

Generating Creative Ideas

Create winning ideas....

• Use a flipchart and marker pens to capture ideas.

• Appoint a facilitator to write up ideas.

• Get as many ideas from as many people as possible.

- use the ball passing technique ie a group member starts by holding the ball and expresses an idea, then randomly passes the ball to another group member who repeats the exercise.

• Don’t evaluate or criticise ideas only seek clarification as necessary.

• Keep going even when you think the ideas have dried up.

• Everyone should stand up.

• Run more than one session to exhaust all ideas.

• Have a methodology for evaluating the ideas shared once all ideas have been generated.
