Creativity tools are now part of the practices of many organizations, and each new trend comes with a new tool. And what if we went back to the basics? Developed in the 60s by advertising executive Alex Osborn, brainstorming is the most used tool – and all too frequently misused tool – in organizations. However, facilitating a successful brainstorming session and grasping its social-cognitive challenges is not as obvious as it seems. Beyond the use of colored post-its, the success of a brainstorming session lies in its preparation, facilitation and debriefing. Based on the most current studies in psychology and neuroscience of creativity, this master class aims to bring a fresh look at brainstorming as a creativity tool, and to propose implementation levers to organize successful brainstorming sessions.
