  3. 3. BRAINSTORMING The Chemistry of Brainstorming ‣ Try and have a diverse group of people/professions present. ‣ Your group size should be 4 to 7 people. ‣ Prepare topics, goals, questions for the moderator to use, to keep the energy and pace active. ‣ Encourage outrageous ideas. ‣ If you see an unexpected, valuable trend improvise and explore it. ‣ Pick a predefined time limit(s), don’t let things drag on ‣ Keep it fun! © DePerro 2010
  4. 4. BRAINSTORMING What are the types? ‣ Structured ‣ Learn what you don’t know you need to know ‣ Test what you think you know ‣ Unstructured ‣ Test ideas, concepts, models with users ‣ Silent ‣ Solve for a given scenario © DePerro 2010
  5. 5. BRAINSTORMING After The Session Has Ended ‣ Recap the session ‣ Collect all the ideas ‣ Group like items ‣ Discuss key findings, insights ‣ Ask participants their observations/impressions ‣ Eliminate items that may not be relevant to the original topic ‣ Thank participants for their time © DePerro 2010
  6. 6. RECORDING Documenting The Session ‣ Take Notes ‣ If you’re recording write down the time stamp to revisit. ‣ Write down key quotes, along with who said it. ‣ Video/Picture ‣ Tripod of key angles, capture group vs. capture a task they’re doing ‣ Floating camera, documenting key insights ‣ Audio ‣ Capturing a conversation; be careful they don’t speak over one-another ‣ Mouse ‣ Track users mouse movements (or eye movements) over an interface. © DePerro 2010
