Brainstorming Tools

If you are stuck for a way to solve a problem, check out Idea Generation Methods, a comprehensive list of idea generation methods from Martin Leith, a consultant based in the UK who designs, plans and manages collaborative meetings. One of my favorites is Backward Mapping in which you imagine that the future has arrived and the problem has been solved or the outcome has been achieved and then you look back at the significant steps you took to arrive there.
