How to Use Affinity Diagrams (KJ Diagrams) in Brainstorming
I have been using the Affinity Diagram method for a long time now and this has proven to be a hit when it comes to selecting criteria and then categorizing ideas. It's participative, silent, quick and very effective. Another variant in brainstorming is using the 6 minus 1 thinking hats, just avoid the Devil's Advocate hat, this can be used in the concerns stage of Brainstorming.
