Fast Idea generator

Challenge an initial idea by generating a lot of alternatives and more developed variants


The Fast idea generator worksheet is designed to challenge your thinking with regards to your initial concept, by applying different scenarios to it. It prompts you to think differently – from a range of perspectives – to help you create ideas to solve problems, or to strengthen or expand your proposition.
There are nine approaches to choose from, all designed to stretch your thinking around your initial concept by applying different scenarios to it
Tips Clearly lay out your concept, opportunity or problem then apply the proposed approaches to it; Think of ways to bend, break and stretch the ‘normal rules’ around your concept, opportunity or problem; Review the ideas generated and select the best ones to develop further.
