What We Do

Brainstorming
sessions that
bring out
the best ideas
for now
and the future.

Brainstorming is a process for generating ideas and solutions. There are many different ways to be successful at brainstorming. At its core is the notion that each person participating generates their own ideas, as well as builds off the ideas created by others in the group setting. At TIME TO BRAINSTORM, we are focused on creating the best possible environment for you and your team to generate ideas that can be used to advance your business, agency, or organization. We strive to reduce roadblocks to contributions, stimulate everyone to encourage broad participation, and work to generate a large outflow of divergent thinking - so every stone is upturned, and all ideas are on the table. Sometimes - the craziest sounding ideas are the best.

Our Capabilities

What we can do to help your organization or team.

PREPARE YOUR GROUP

Preparing a group for a brainstorming session requires a comfortable meeting environment. Sometimes, getting out of the office can be a real positive step. We can work with you to determine how much information and pre-session preparation your needs to have. Individual research or smaller team meetings can help get the juices flowing, but we want to make sure we do not create roadblocks to idea creation. We also will help identify the right people to attend the session (the right balance of diverse perspectives and backgrounds is important). When the brainstorming session is ready to take place, we make sure everyone is warmed-up and ready to get going. And as the session progresses, we assign non-contributors to capture all ideas, and make them constantly visible to everyone.

CREATE A STRUCTURED EXPERIENCE

We will discuss your goals, the personalities on your team, your target customer audience, and competition (if relevant) to help create the best structure for your brainstorming session. However, one of the most important aspects of a brainstorming session is what takes place before the session - the research and individual preparation. We have a system to prevent group-think and anchoring - where one or a few ideas get discussed and no creative expression takes place. Our team will create a detailed plan that provides all the steps your employees / team-members need to follow to ensure total participation, and idea sharing. The structure we create will go a long way to ensuring you get the most value from brainstorming.

GUIDE THE DISCUSSION

A brainstorming or ideation session needs both a guide, as well as managers who are NOT part of the idea creation process to help the discussion be a success. The last thing you want is someone on your team who you need as a contributor to not participate because they had to manage the room, or record results. We not only keep a highly detailed record of all discussion and interaction, but we connect everything together in a final report that can be used by your organization and its leadership to act on all ideas that your team-members come up with.
