The Jazz of Innovation



The ability to make strategic decisions quickly is vital to your success and survival in the increasingly competitive marketplace.

At the end of an  ideas campaign, or the idea generation phase of the brainstorming session, you should also be able choose the ideas you wish to take further quickly. A good brainstorming session can generate a lot of ideas. If you have no means of determining which ideas will best meet your needs, it is all too easy to become overwhelmed by ideas and select none of them, or to choose to implement one of the most obvious but least effective ideas. The best approach is to choose the best ideas from all ideas generated in the brainstorming session and then evaluate them.
