Brainstorming sessions are hard to implement. It is challenging to keep all participants engaged and come up with the most beneficial ideas/solutions. However, there are techniques that might make it easier and more fun. One approach is to utilize LEGO bricks to visualize the problem and its solution. LEGO realized the potential and founded a program called LEGO SERIOUS PLAY. If you are interested please swing by for this hands-on session.
