Rawlinson brainstorming

 Rawlinson brainstorming technique

Author: J. G. Rawlinson,  1970
This technique  does not emphasize group interaction. It is especially useful for untrained groups because there is no interaction between group members and all ideas are directed towards the facilitator and scribe.

Procedure Steps

1. The problem owner simply presents his problem and the ideal situation he is looking for.
2. Then he gives simple background on routes he has tried and have failed, and what would represent an ideal solution.
3. Other group members present their solutions directly to the  facilitator in two-word phrases.
4. The facilitator focuses on those ideas that he finds most helpful and give him new viewpoints.
