  1. 1. OPPORTUNITY AND IDEA GENERATION<br />: Role of creativity and innovation in business<br />
  2. 2. ‘Business is not about the idea of power, but the power of ideas’<br />The starting point of any business organisation is a powerful idea. An idea worth thinking about, an idea worth enhancing and developing , an idea worth converting into a business.<br />

  4. 4. APPROACHES TO GENERATING IDEAS<br />Brainstorming:Under this approach all the members of the group attempt to make suggestions. This helps in generating a large number of product ideas. <br />Improvement of an existing product:a business idea may be related to removing shortcomings in an existing product by means of technology. E.g. color TV was an improvement over black and white TV.<br />
  5. 5. BRAINSTORMING<br />Brainstorming is a method of generating ideas and sharing knowledge to solve a particular commercial or technical problem, in which participants are encouraged to think without interruption. Brainstorming is a group activity where each participant shares their ideas as soon as they come to mind. At the conclusion of the session, ideas are categorised and ranked for follow-on action.<br /> During brainstorming sessions there should be no criticism of ideas: You are trying to open up possibilities and break down wrong assumptions about the limits of the problem. <br />Ideas should only be evaluated at the end of the brainstorming session – this is the time to explore solutions further using conventional approaches.<br />
