Create Brainstorming Commandos for Creative Problem Solving

Agile teams are solving real-world complex problems every day. These problems require creative problem solving by team members. In its truest sense, brainstorming is intended to be a practical approach to this task. Brainstorming entails “using the brain to storm a creative problem and to do so in commando fashion, with each 'stormer' audaciously attacking the same objective.” In this highly practical workshop, Pradeepa Narayanaswamy introduces you to a variety of brainstorming games that get the creative juices flowing to yield better collaboration and ideas among team members. Delegates practice and take back different ideas and concepts to facilitate a fun and effective brainstorming session. This session is targeted at ScrumMasters, agile coaches, managers, and any team members who are looking to add more facilitation tools to their tool belt.
