In this brainstorming exercise, delegates get to think about the most unlikely solutions or ideas in a systematic way. The aim of this brainstorming technique is to encourage out-of-the-box thinking and encourage the participants to be bold in proposing non-obvious solutions. The competitive and fun atmosphere of the exercise which is run much like a game encourages everyone to suggest unusual solutions without the fear of being ridiculed or criticised.
Suggest the most unlikely solution to the problem and then pick the best one.
