Electronic Brainstorming (E-Brainstorming)
Who has any experiences to share on Electronic Brainstorming? Under what circumstances would you recommend using it?

Anthony Belon, Member
E-Brainstorming? I do not have any experience. Suffice to ask: are you referring to using video-conference technique? I think it far too expensive to do so. Besides what is the need for such e-brainstorming? You might consider using chat room method for brainstorming.

E-Brainstorming Applications
Lennart Skarblom, Member
I have also thought a lot about e-brainstorming. Nowadays it's very common that people have their laptop at meetings.
It could be helpful if there was a way to handle suggestions from the participants and get them up on a common board.
It should act as a forum but you should be able to be anonymous. The system should also have the feature of being able to vote for suggestions. This could free the facilitator from some documentation and eliminates unreadable handwriting.
It could also be used moderated where the facilitator can bounce suggestions back to the sender asking for more clarifying text if the scope is too wide or difficult to understand.

E-brainstorming Software
Jeremy Lu, SIG Leader
Hi, you might this software relevant to your question about electronic brainstorming.
It has been used at university, government and other organisations to help reduce costs and allow groups of people to brainstorm in a variety of formats. It allows for independent and group collaborative brainstorming. It's useful for things like product innovation, stakeholder mapping, risk mapping, agile retrospectives as well as general brainstorming.

The best application areas to use it are when you want free independent suggestions from people anonymously. It will group the suggestions into a single map so that you can comment and vote for action. The report function also allows you to not have to worry about manual collation.
Hope that is helpful to you.
