How to create / organize an online brainstorming session?

1 Your brainstorming's title - First key factor


Your brainstorming's pitch. The stronger the pitch, the more successful the brainstorming.

Be creative! The pitch should be altogether easy to understand, stunning, concrete. It should bring out an emotion, tell a story! It can be written with very few words. Need help ? I need help for the title


2 Brief, description


Give more information about your brainstorming.
Write about the brainstorming's general context, the kind of ideas you are looking for, your values, your style. If you choose a public brainstorming, don't forget to explain technical words and abbreviations.

Do not be afraid to set a frame to your brainstorming! Contrary to general belief, creativity is increased when limitations are set.

Do work on your title and your brief! If you choose to reward the best contributors when the brainstorming is over, be sure you have decided so before launching your brainstorming. Once started, your brainstorming's rules are edited and can't be modified.
