Why Reinvent the Wheel?
Sometimes starting from scratch leaves people with a blank, but having something to improve is much easier to deal with. There's already a framework in place to hang things on. With that in mind, I found a Think Tank already in existence and thought perhaps people could improve on what is there - with an eye toward bringing forward the advantages of this group's unique contributions.
Is anyone else here is interested on improving or adopting similar or
differing features of a "think tank" group that already exists at
Of course, what would make our group different is we have the benefit of thinking tools to help generate ideas through more formalized (and better!) lateral thinking channels.
Check out this creative thinking service and give feedback what you "like" or descriptions about what you notice on some of the specific pages. Having this example solves many of the logistical problems of how to organize 1000 brains and tap their advantages while minimizing the work of "harvesting" and organizing results.
In particular, on that website under "Sample Brainlines," there are two very nice examples of how creative ideas are requested with the various goals of naming a product adding sales ideas
What do you think of these two examples in particular? How could they be improved?
Can we use the Six Thinking Hats on this topic?
hR = Red Hat - feelings
hB = Black Hat - cautions
hG = Green Hat - creative
hW = White Hat - facts
hY = Yellow Hat - benefits
hH = Blue hat - process
