Stop-and-go Brainstorming

Stop-and-go Brainstorming technique

Types of Brainstorming

The brainstorming session is divided up into segments.
Ideas are generated for three to five minutes and then the group is silent for three to five minutes. It allows participants to gather their thoughts and peruse the ideas that have been recorded up to that point. Then ideas are given out for another three to five.

 Pauses in the Brainstorming Process ( Michael S. Slocum)

The Flow of Idea Generation includes some stages.
Initial phase: many easy ideas.
First pause. Ideas are built upon and combined.
Second pause. Fewer but deeper ideas
Third pause. Ideas are exhausted.
