How do I help people be more innovative?
My view on brainstorming is it's just one tool to use for creative problem solving... and like all tools, has its strengths and weaknesses. Its strength is with an enthusiastic cooperative group + skilled facilitator, you can generate a lot of ideas. Its weakness are that speed is generally favored over deeper introspection, and the more vocal people tend dominate. Brainstorming can also be used as a great team-building exercise.
