Generating Ideas in a Group
September 9, 2011
Larry Port, the co-founder and CEO of Rocket Matter posted an interesting series of suggestions about generating ideas in a group, ranging from buying lunch to using mind maps. 6 Ways to Generate Ideas in a Group on the company’s Legal Productivity blog offers a variety of ideas for creating forward momentum in an organization. One of the most compelling is #6 — Regularly Schedule Start, Stop, Continue Meetings. Port explains that every two weeks, his team meets for 15-30 minutes and answers the following questions:
* What should we start doing that would help us?
* What’s not working that we should stop?
* What have we recently implemented that we should continue?
These three questions are just as applicable to individuals as organizations. They prompt reflection and action.
