In this brainstorming exercise participants take different roles to contribute to the problem solving activity. This allows them to contribute without fear of being laughed at or criticised. The roles are defined by a facilitator prior to the brainstorming session to bias it towards a particular direction.
Adopt several roles when considering a problem and contribute as if looking at the problem from a specific perspective.
Explaining the Exercise: 5 minutes
Activity: 10 min deciding roles (optional) + (3 min idea generation * N roles) + 10 min free discussions = 44 minutes for 8 delegates
Group Feedback: 10 minutes
