Conference Room AI love a good brainstorming session.

Something about taking a group of smart people and throwing ideas on the wall. Be they good, bad, or otherwise — it’s a great way to get all the options & all the issues up in your face.

I recently toured some facilities with white board walls all around and realized that was something we wanted more of at our Akron Office Space Coworking facility.

So this weekend, we completed the first installation of white boards in our Conference Room ‘A’ — nice, big 4 x 8 dry erase boards ready for members to get together and go nuts.

Over the coming weeks we’ll complete installation of additional boards for all four of our conference / team rooms. In fact, the team rooms will feature entire walls covered with the dry erase boards. Each of which can be booked online by members for client meetings, off-site team meetings, training & education & product brainstorming sessions.

Ahhh but before you get started – here’s a great article with detailed guidelines for running a successful creative brainstorming session.

An outline of these guidelines includes:

  • Suspend judgment
  • Think freely
  • Improve, modify, build on the ideas of others.
  • Concentrate on generating a large stock of ideas

And the article goes on to explain the practical methodology for running the session — including making sure you have an official recorder, keeping the session relaxed & playful, & organizing the chaos.

Anyway – I encourage you to read the full article at Virtual Salt and to plan your next brainstorming session at Office Space Coworking in Akron or Cuyahoga Falls.
