What is an Ideation Checklist?

An Ideation Checklist provides a pathway to success for brainstorming sessions by highlighting both the rough and the green of such an activity. Placing side-by-side both common traps to avoid and what can boost creativity, an Ideation Checklist adds strategic structure to a sometimes chaotic exercise.

Why should you use Chris Griffiths’ Ideation Checklist?

Generating ideas is famed as the most creative part of problem-solving. However, every element of it (understanding, reasoning, analysing etc.) in fact requires a lot of creativity. They must also include structure, and this applies to ideation too. A caricature of ideation might depict it as complete and utter wackiness with no rules in sight, similar to something which might be found in a classic children’s comic strip.

With the Ideation Checklist an emphasis is placed upon fun and creativity whilst also ensuring that your brainstorming sessions possess the correct ingredients such as being in the right environment, encouraging collaboration, forming structure, listening to others, taking breaks and more. Overall, the Ideation Checklist turns an activity which can easily run away from you and your objectives into one which delivers results, energy and fun!
