The latest visual collaboration trend, brainswarming (not brainstorming) - is all about generating ideas for teams to innovate better, together.
We’ve already covered the difference between brainswarming and brainstorming, where we highlighted the basics of brainswarming:
We came up with a simple example to illustrate the techniques of brainswarming:
If the main goal is to retain top talent, and you’ve got your existing set of resources, the next step is to consider what you can do to achieve the goal by using the resources to your advantage.
In our example, we brainswarmed some subgoals. To retain top talent, some subgoals could be:
Once you’ve determined your subgoals, it’s often easier to form concrete solutions mapped to your resources. Here, our solutions were:
Brainswarming is exponentially easier when you have a visual collaboration tool like ThinkHub.
With ThinkHub’s massive interactive Canvas, teams can create brainswarming graphs with ease for hybrid teams of both in-room and remote collaborators. Here’s how:
Use the ThinkHub Groups tool to create ordered brainswarming Groups: Goal, Subgoals, Solutions, and Resources.
Next, add Notes to the Canvas for each brainswarming Group - you can even automatically adjust the theme to match! Send Notes to the Canvas in-room from your laptop or from anywhere in the world with the T1V app.
Map out your brainswarming Notes using ThinkHub’s built-in annotation tools. Draw with your finger or a Stylus to bring your team’s ideas together.
