Brainsketching is a group creative method that uses sketching and drawing to generate a large breadth and quantity of ideas. An offshoot of brainstorming, a brainsketch exercise involves each person in the group sketching or doodling a concept solution to a particular problem. After a time, each person passes his or her sketch to the next person who then continues to build and grow the idea. After a while, all ideas are pulled together for evaluation and discussion. Brainsketching can even be done if participants are not physically in the same location: ideas can be sketched, then emailed back and forth as they are built upon by the group.
Brainsketching is just one of many techniques and tools that Product QuickStart team employs in our invention development process.
