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.
