Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
Ideation requires a process.
There are specific steps required to reach a successful outcome.
Here are the steps to follow for your ideation program:
Define the problem.
Write out a problem statement to define clearly the problem to be solved.
Set the criteria.
This defines what criteria the idea must meet to be considered.
There are several methods to generate ideas including mind mapping and inversion.
Mind mapping starts with a core focus and then draws out related concepts.
Inversion is the process of reversing the problem and creating a list of ideas to solve it.
Apply your criteria to the generated ideas and eliminate those that don’t fit.
Test the ideas.
Take the ideas that meet the criteria and test them out.
Ideation is a process just like every other business function.
