The Creative Method is a way to push past your default ideas — the same ideas that you always have, the ideas that are just good enough. Learn how to create quantity, then pick and organize the great ones. Learn how to reach into the outlying areas of your mind through innovative brainstorming techniques. Learn how to routinely capture your own thoughts, becoming better and faster at new ideation. Learn how to judge and assess your ideas, how to improve on them, and how to focus them to solve a problem or meet an objective. The Creative Method and subsequent Systems will change the way you think about your own ideas.
People should be able to think on their feet, feel comfortable voicing opinions in a group setting, and enjoy creating things. Pen and paper is needed. Laptops are useful but unnecessary.
