Online Brainstorming Beats In Person
I am now convinced that online brainstorming is how brainstorming should always be done – even after COVID.
I can’t believe I’m saying this because for over 40 years we ran Eureka! Inventing in person. Changing it, as the graph shows, when confidence declines, mindset is impacted.
The new Eureka! Inventing 11.0 version delivers BROADER & DEEPER thinking by participants. And, quantitatively – over 90% of the ideas created are scoring over the “GO” test standard and 60% over the “WOW” standard.
This is a really exciting development as it mirrors the need to do more of our work digitally. I don’t think folks are going to want to go back to all in person meetings/events. Congrats on both the findings and this methodology. I know from my research that “fear of being judged” is a big inhibitor in the brainstorming process as well as losing focus or forgetting an idea when someone else has the floor. Your solution removes these barriers.
