  • + What do we mean by innovation? The purpose of this step in the strategic thinking phase is to brainstorm potential innovative ideas and opportunities that will target the leverage points, help achieve the goals, and reduce the impact of each transboundary problem.
  • + What is brainstorming?  Thee rapid generation and listing of solution ideas without clarification and without evaluation of their merits  Works best with a varied group of people from a range of disciplines and have different backgrounds  Requires a facilitator, a relaxed environment and something on which to write ideas, such as a white-board or a flip chart.

  • + Advice from the Field Planning is everything. Make sure you and key SAP development team members are familiar with the process before you deliver it. You will need to set some ground rules before beginning any effective brainstorming session. However, you must be careful not to set the rules so tight that you stifle creativity. Brainstorming is more than putting people into a room and talking about ideas. You will need to ensure that the discussion focuses in the right direction while supporting a free flow of ideas. It is not the tool you will use to determine the best solution. Your goal for a brainstorming session is to get as many ideas as possible out in the open. Discussion and analysing these ideas will come later.
