Big Idea Selection

To further add value to your BigStorming® session, Marilyn can also conduct a “Big Idea Selection” workshop after the initial session. During this workshop, Marilyn will work with you to review all of the ideas generated by your team and put them through a creative and strategic filter. These workshops are a tremendous assistance in helping you to select the biggest and most strategic ideas.

Here’s how it works: at the conclusion of every BigStorming® session, Barefoot Brainstorming will supply you with a comprehensive report detailing all of the Big Ideas generated during the session. We will then construct and facilitate a workshop to generate the criteria for selecting the very best ideas.

Final Ideas

Once the team has completed the Big Idea Selection, the short list of Big Ideas might still need some additional development and polishing. A Final Ideas facilitated session offers that last layer of close attention and review – along with detailed discussions about executional excellence. Final Ideas is an offering that provides the careful and nuanced attention to detail that every Big Idea needs to get liftoff and traction.
