RichRelations

 

Synopsis

 

 

OverviewEach participant will review the results of the brainstorming exercise and select two items that express a relationship. The relationship will be recorded and the repeat until there are no more ideas to consider.

 

This brainstorming pattern is designed get participants to expand the breadth of ideas beyond their existing views. The goal is to get the participants to work on a shared vision of the merged company composed of a new, heterogeneous team. This is in keeping with the purpose of FreeBrainstorming.

 

Purpose: The brainstorming session should give us a lot of ideas about a complex problem that forms no clear category or set of categories. The RichRelations process will create categories that will eventually capture the main threads of the brainstorming session. The remainder of the retreat will refine these threads until they are reduced to a generally agreed upon description of the corporate culture.

 

Time: 30 min

 

Input: Brainstorming results

 

Output: A list of categories that represent the brainstorming results
