Brainstorming - Dealing with Excess of Information
Daniel Fucci Lemos
My latest brainstorming meetings for SWOT analysis generated more (much more) material than I expected, directed to several companies areas.
I have now a great deal of information to treat.
Is there a special method to solve this issue?
The ideas are pre-classified, but still it would take a lot of effort to treat them all.

Brainstorming - Dealing with Excessive Amount of Information
Emiel Veenstra, Member
After having collected a big bunch of ideas (that is what brainstorming is about) and having classified them, I would focus on a top 5 or top 10, whatever.
Ask all the participants to rate the ideas with points e.g. 1-5 per idea. Than add all points up and you get a classification in points, weighted results so to say.
Furthermore you could classify the ideas in short term or long term actions / effects

Brainstorming in the Situation Center
Alexander N. Raikov, Premium Member
BEFORE using SWOT-method in a team we usually use the analytical hierarchy process for the construction and evaluation of priorities goals, and AFTER the SWOT cognitive modeling.
It helps us to identify and prioritize the factors, achieve a high level of understanding between members of the team. It is useful to utilize the possibility of situation center.
