Pressure to be creative on cue. 7. Pressure to converge quickly!!! 8. Lack of follow up. All Rights Reserved MetaMemes © 2008

HOW IDEO DOES IT How IDEO does innovation… • Brainstorming is a pervasive cultural influence at IDEO. It’s part of every project and every day. • Brainstorming is a skill and an art to be practiced and perfected. It’s learning to play piano rather than learning to tie your shoelaces. • Brainstorming requires a structured but flexible environment. All Rights Reserved MetaMemes © 2008
