Tools, Community Innovation, Galen MacLusky

Have you ever been asked to come up with new ideas to solve an old problem, or been stuck on how to get a group to approach a challenge in a different way? Sometimes, the best way to spark creativity is to think carefully about the question being asked.

This tool will help you:

  • Foster new ideas in brainstorming questions
  • Achieve clear definition on the challenge you face
  • Generate multiple new perspectives on the challenge
  • Make your assumptions and understanding of your challenge explicit
