From Mycoted The Productive Thinking Model (sometimes also known as thinkx ) was developed by Tim Hurson , a Canadian author, speaker, and creativity theorist. It is a structured approach to solving problems or generating creative ideas that is based in part on Creative Problem Solving (CPS) and NASA's IDEF . The Productive Thinking Model is a framework rather than a technique; that is, various creativity techniques such as brainstorming and lateral thinking can be applied at different stages of the process. Uses
From Mycoted Bodystorming is a technique sometimes used in interaction design or as a creativity technique. The idea is to imagine what it would be like if the product existed, and act as though it exists, ideally in the place it would be used. The proponents of this idea like to point out the fact that you get up and move, trying things out with your own body, rather than just sitting around a meeting table.
From Mycoted This technique emphasises the ‘rational’ rather than the ‘creative’, it is essentially a method for fault diagnosis and repair rather than for disorganized or systemic problem domains, or those where freshness of vision is essential.
From Mycoted There are various descriptions by several authors where pictures are used as idea triggers, Brainstorming , BrainWriting and Excursions . Warfield, et al (1975) put together a description ‘BBB’ – Battelle-Bildmappen-Brainwriting – developed at the Batelle Institute in Frankfurt, and input from Schaude (1979) describing visual Synectics . Sometimes the group creates the pictures first (see Greetings Cards and Component Detailing ), however it is more regular to use the pictures as part of a wider battery of idea triggers, rather than on there own.
From Mycoted Talking Pictures is from the book Instant Creativity by Brian Clegg and Paul Birch . When you need a little extra boost for a group that have got a little stale during the Idea Generation phase, split up into teams, giving each a digital camera and access to a printer (you could use a polaroid, or provide a set of bizarre photgraphs you have, but it's best to get the teams to capture them).
From Mycoted When traditional thinking has become stale or dried up, visual brainstorming using graphic ideation may be a useful alternative Idea Generation Phase , set a high target: e.g. to generate 20-30 basic idea-sketches on a specific problem in 1hr. If in groups you could begin with private sketches which you then pool, perhaps a round robin. Quick, impulsive ideas put into sketch can help to avoid undeveloped ‘lost’ thoughts/ideas.
From Mycoted The focus and content of a problem statement can be adjusted and developed in a variety of ways. However after the development stage it is valuable to ensure that the way it is expressed will support the workings of the problem solving method you are using. Isakesen, Dorval and Treffinger (1994) developed this straightforward checklist, which is supportive of this procedure
From Mycoted Several authors have recommended the use of random stimuli of various kinds (see Creative Thinking, Lateral Thinking, Problem-Solving through Creative Analysis), which suggests there is a fundamental significance for being open to possibilities from everywhere. Although the concept is often used informally, a formal approach may look like this: Identify your criteria for ideas – e.g. ideas for solving a problem or tackling some aspect of it, an idea to be built on, a hypothesis to be investigated, etc. Spend some time on this stage for better-quality outcomes later.
