Tips to Prepare a Brainstorming Session

A good method to open the mind and stimulate creative thinking is to start with asking a simple question like "What can you do with a glass of water".
Just go around in the group and let everyone answer this question a couple of times.
The answers will be more and more creative during this session.

Tips to Prepare Brainstorming Sessions

To prepare an effective strategic brainstorming, the project manager or moderator should select the team members from each of the functional areas such as finance, marketing, production, quality control, risk management, human resources etc so as to allow cross-fertilisation of ideas.
The atmosphere and environment must have bearing on the topical issues and allows for optimum participation from the team members.
You can circulate an outline of the issues to be discussed ahead of time to give room for adequate preparation and consultation. Such a draft could also be produced from the initial session which will be built upon subsequently after critical considerations for implementation.
