module 3b: individual idea generation

This module includes:

1. Idea generation using “Brain writing”

2. Idea generation using “Person” stimuli

3. Idea generation using “Picture” stimuli

4. Idea generation using “Word” stimuli

This module consists of four idea generation tools. The participants should write down as many ideas as possible and only one idea per paper (it is a good idea to use post-its or similar). Make sure the participants understand that any idea should be written down no matter if it is a good, bad, crazy, weird or boring idea. The Brain writing tool is to make the participants write down any idea that pops up in their mind without using any stimuli. The person, picture and word tools are using stimuli (person, picture and word) to help the participants generate new ideas. Use only one stimulus at a time.

Estimated time for this module: 40 minutes
