Group creativity involves several techniques, like brainstorming, Nominal group technique, the Delphi technique, and affinity diagrams. Idea/mind mapping is a group creativity technique where participants first use brainstorming techniques to record their ideas. White boards or flip charts are a great tool to use with this process. The facilitator uses the white board to map ideas and, using a mind-mapping layout, group similar topics together. Mind mapping allows the participants to get an understanding of common ideas and themes, create new ideas, and understand differences.
Brainstorming might be used to discover alternative ways of achieving one of the project objectives. If project’s budget doesn’t allow for a portion of the project that the stakeholders really think needs to be included. Brainstorming might uncover an alternative that would allow the needed portion to be accomplished.
