Brain Storming

One TV program my kids watch that has an tool for business is - "The Imagination Movers".  It is a light and fun program that introduces  a number of different key concepts and problem solving skills and practices for kids (and adults as well!).

The show in brief - a person comes to the Movers with an issue or a problem.  The Movers are then engaged to help find a solution to the particular problem. 

How do they do it?  The Movers employ the 'Brain Storming' process.  They even have a song about it.  They think about all the possible solutions and avenues that a possible answer could come from and then they start experimenting. 

So what can we learn from these guys?
  1. Finding solutions for problem situations can be fun.
  2. There are no wrong ideas when searching for a solution.
  3. It takes a lot of trial and error before you will find the solution that fits.
  4. Teamwork creates more ideas and reduces the time for implementation.
Here's a clip from the show that highlights the Brainstorming emphasis.
