Traditional brainstorming pales in comparison with a technique called Brainwriting. Brainwriting can easily lead to more than double the ideas generated in a typical brainstorming session. Also, it’s not as tricky as brainstorming to work well for you. The Shortcomings of Brainstorming Brainstorming is by far the most widely used group idea generation tool.
