Northeast Ohio Regional Library System - Event Information

Event Name:Brainstorming and Innovation
Competency:Adaptability, Problem Solving, and Teamwork
Description:Brainstorming is an incredibly powerful innovation tool. From solving problems to generating creative, groundbreaking ideas, the act of brainstorming can spark fresh and extraordinary concepts, vision and actions.  Is there a systematic way to brainstorm?  How can we make our brainstorming sessions most productive and efficient in order to produce innovative ideas?

There are hundreds of brainstorming techniques available, and each can produce valuable ideas and objectives, but not all are created equally.   People often think that brainstorming works best when it has no boundaries or plans, letting ideas flow. While the goal is to create an open environment, brainstorming works best when there is a framework.   Use brainstorming to get past the conventional ideas and move into new, uncharted and innovative thinking.

Learning Objectives:
  • Discover what can hinder the brainstorming process and what strategies can successfully overcome impediments, providing “out of the box” thinking for innovation
  • Work on ways to break down problems systematically and create a foundation for effective and productive brainstorming
  • Understand and apply a wide variety of brainstorming techniques to be used individually, in meetings, with groups and more, for immediate results
