Brainstorming: Less Storm and More Brain

Brainstorming: Less Storm and More Brain

Many innovation drives are centered on the process of brainstorming. The technique was originally developed and propagated by Alex Osborn in 1953 in his book Applied Imagination. In essence brainstorming is where a group of people come together and...

High-quality piece Gert. I agree with the recommendations on brainwriting and method 635, followed by an incubation period. You will create less behavioral inhibition to sharing ideas as well as commenting on them or adding to them, particularly by less assertive people.

Good post Gert Scholtz. I was lucky in my advertising career to have only ever had to get involved in a few of these things. Creative people are hired because they are self-contained brainstorming sessions. The most people I ever brainstormed with was one. My partner, and even then not always. The few that I did attend were exercises in futility, or designed to involve the client and keep them happy. Thank God there were goodies on the table. The best clients I ever had where the ones who always said these four words...."You're the creative expert".

How Can We Improve beBee?

How Can We Improve beBee?

Lately someone commented on a buzz saying that many beBee users are actually fake, something inevitable with Social Media overall. This got me thinking of ways we could avert that and make beBee better in the process. So, I can up with this simple...

Since you added a comment to my piece im doing the exact same thing you did. Lately someone commented on a buzz saying that many beBee users are actually fake, something inevitable with Social Media overall. This got me thinking of ways we could avert that and make beBee better in the process. So, I can up with this simple idea: if a beBee user doesn't get any meaningful interaction in their posts, the latter get less coverage. What exactly is meaningful though is something that needs to be discussed and later on defined accurately, since this is something different for everyone. However, with the right data from the beBee platform, it is possible to come to a meaningful definition of what is meaningful content and as a result, what is a real profile. Another thing we could do, and which I talked about briefly with Javier, is to have a "mark as spam" option for posts that are clearly not useful to anyone, other than the person / company that posted them. This, however, is just one example of something that can be improved on beBee. Since I have a day job, I cannot spend too much time about other things that ought to be added / changed on this platform, but hey, I'm not the only bee who cares about beBee, right? So, what potential improvement opportunities have you identified on this platform and what can we do to tackle the issues behind them? Feel free to contribute to this endeavor in the comments below, or by sharing this post in hives that you consider relevant. Thanks! Guess what ZAch I said the exact same thing you did but with my own whimsical take because its my style. so does that mean im fake or there is an an auto reply or some AI whatever is typing words into these pages. NO !! I hail from planet eartth. I am a real human being. Would you like me to send a copy of my drivers license, social security card and naturalization card? would that be sufficient to you that I have been engageed on Bebee
