• Ask questions that provoke responses and inspire creativity

• React to and record ideas in a way that encourages participants and prompts more input

• Sort and categorize lengthy lists

• And more

Containing sample dialogues, as well as resources for virtual team brainstorming, this indispensible book gives readers the activities they need to generate great ideas, fast.
