Brainstorming 101 – Contributors

Not everyone is a brainstorming pro and that’s okay. Even if you’re completely new to the brainstorming process can still get a lot out of the Crainstorm web app. Let us introduce you to some of the basics of brainstorming, along with some tips and tricks to make sure you get the most out of your first Crainstorm.

What is a Brainstorm

First things first, a brainstorm is a group discussion that attempts to solve a problem or come up with new ideas. As a contributor, your job is to help work with the team generate ideas and offer potential solutions to your host’s challenge.
