A technique used for finding solutions to problems by means of stimulating ideas. A small group of people with or without conscious knowledge of the subject meet and contribute any suggestion or idea that comes into their heads, no matter how fantastic or impossible it may sound. All suggestions are encouraged and criticism is not allowed at this stage, though contributors are later invited to explain their ideas. Subsequently, all the ideas submitted at the meeting are sifted and assessed.
