Selective Random Brainstorming
- Share your ideas – through discussion select one of your ideas to focus upon
- Generate Four lists of 10 words/short phrase under these headings about your focus idea:
- Use the online random picker with each heading to select a four word sentence.
- Notice your responses to the sentences you generate.
- Share with group
Each letter in the acronym represents a certain transformation you can apply to the subject of brainstorming.
- S — Substitute.
- C — Combine.
- A — Adapt.
- M — Modify.
- P — Put to other uses.
- E — Eliminate.
- R — Rearrange or reverse.
It’s necessary to illustrate each step with an example and ask participants to generate a couple of ideas themselves for the sake of training. As a result, you’ll be sure they won’t get stuck. We explained the mechanism by giving sample ideas for improving such an ordinary object as a ballpoint pen.
- Substitute the ink with something edible.
- Combine the body and the grip so that they are one piece.
- Adapt a knife for “writing” on wood like a pen.
- Modify the body so that it becomes flexible — for wearing as a bracelet.
- Use a pen as a hairpin or arrow for darts.
- Eliminate the clip and use a magnet instead.
- Reverse the clip. As a result, the nib will be oriented up, and the pen won’t spill in a pocket.
