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.
