When developing new products and strategies A.J. Brown Jersey , coming up with unique ideas is often a struggle. It is one of the reasons why, in any industry, there is so much repetition. One way to generate new ideas and "get the creative juices flowing" is by completing brainstorming exercises using props. There are several ways to incorporate brainstorming into a new product development session. Two of my favorite techniques are skimming business publications and utilizing goodie bags.
What is Brainstorming?
According to , brainstorming is: 1) A method of shared problem solving in which all members of a group spontaneously contribute ideas or 2) A similar process undertaken by a person to solve a problem by rapidly generating a variety of possible solutions.
In action, brainstorming should be uncensored. No idea is dumb or impossible. In an organization Jeffery Simmons Jersey , throw titles out the window. The janitor's ideas have the same validity as the CEO's. When implementing the brainstorming techniques below, try to pretend you know nothing about what is (or is not) possible. Write down ideas as they come up, no matter how outlandish. The task at hand is to free-associate, generating as many ideas as you can.
Brainstorming with "Goodie Bags"
There's nothing more boring than a sterile conference room. Yet, this is where many new product development sessions take place. To liven the atmosphere Jurrell Casey Jersey , you need a uli to get the ideas flowing.
One technique for providing stimuli is to gather miscellaneous items into "goodie bags" and have brainstorming groups sort through them, writing down ideas as they occur. As seasonal Marketing Manager for Nestl?'s Sunmark Division several years ago, I used this technique to hold a very productive new product development brainstorming session. In preparation, we filled colorful gift bags with small items that would stimulate new product ideas because of their texture, taste Kevin Byard Jersey , appearance, ingredients, sound, or smell.
In the meeting, we divided the team into sub-groups of three to four people and gave each a bag. After digging through the bags Derrick Henry Jersey , discussing, and writing down ideas, each group gave a small presentation. We came out of the meeting with many more great ideas than we could implement that year and it was fun for everyone involved.
Brainstorming with Business Publications and Trade Journals
If you do not have a group to work with, try using business newspapers and prominent trade journal as springboards for generating ideas. These can be effective brainstorming tools for several reasons:
- The general publications contain articles about several industries, which is good for brainstorming new ideas that can apply to your own industry.
- Marketing techniques and strategies discussed in the journals can help you brainstorm new marketing ideas of your own.
- In publications such as the Wall Street Journal Corey Davis Jersey , the editors include a mix of short articles (good for brainstorming ideas based on what others are doing) and in-depth reports (good for brainstorming new product development strategies that grow from trends).
- By skimming a variety of business related articles (news articles, features, human interest, and analytical pieces) you broaden your idea base, which results in more new product ideas.
Additionally Marcus Mariota Jersey , many print publications have integrated the Internet into their traditional business models. Besides offering both online and offline versions, many provide email alert services. Because they have successfully integrated online marketing into their own business, writers and editors are able to intelligently address both online and offline strategies, which in turn will create a more productive brainstorming session for you.
Applying the Techniques
Both trade journals and goodie bags can be used for other strategies besides new product development. They can also be used as techniques to generate ideas for online products and services, new marketing strategies Cheap Titans Hats , business taglines, and more.
Whether brainstorming alone or in a group, remember two rules: 1) no censoring and 2) use props as springboards for new ideas. Do this and your brainstorming session is sure to be a success.
Failures in project management systems can be superficially explained by anything from a lack of project detail to managerial conflicts. However, this failure often has deeper roots. Until we begin to recognize this uncontrollable factor it will be difficult to master the implementation of any management system. This factor is known as the ?Chaos Theory? or simply ?chaos?. Chaos Theory could be considered a core management theory for the 21st century. According to Wheatley (1992) when management tries to control chaos by 'shoehorning? it into a specific structure, an organization is bound to fail. Controlling chaos this rigidly is actually limiting information gathering (Stuart Cheap Titans T-Shirts , 1995) and creating the illusion of management. According to McNamara (1999), Chaos Theory recognizes that events are rarely controlled. As systems such as those in management grow in complexity, the more they become volatile or susceptible to cataclysmic events.
One way to plan for such chaos is through ?contingency management?. Contingency management is having an alternative plan to fall back on when chaos strikes, allowing for critical internal processes to continue and meet the desired outcome. Most managers do not see contingency management as a necessary step, because it takes time. In a world where efficiency and timeliness is key Cheap Titans Hoodie , this step is often the first to be overlooked. Until management recognizes the importance of contingency management and allows it to be fully implemented, chaos will continue to hinder the progress and efficiency of management systems.
