Simple brainstorm

Come up with as many ideas as you can

Everyone knows what a brainstorm is. And yet, few people actually follow the brainstorm best practices.

One important practice is to focus on quantity of ideas—not quality, as you might expect. The idea is to stretch the edges of your imagination and push people into unexplored territory.

Another important piece of a brainstorm is to try not to reject any idea until after the brainstorm is over. There will be plenty of time for rational decisions later. Give your attendees the freedom to think bigger than they normally do, if only for a single session.


For this template, we kept things simple with just one question.

You can edit any template in Shuffleboard, so feel free to adjust it for the needs of your session.

Run in Shuffleboard

I loved the lightweight experience of Shuffleboard. It felt like Jackbox for a business workshop… and it really did help us get productive input from a large group of people at once. I think I’d want to use this tool even if I was doing an in person session!

The best part of Shuffleboard is how everyone joins just by clicking a link. I can immediately collect everybody's ideas in a transparent way, but stay in control of the chaos and finish the meeting with an actionable, shareable plan.
