Book Description :

Brainstorming and Beyond describes the techniques for generating ideas verbally, in writing, or through sketches. The first chapter focuses on brainstorming, the foundation method for ideation, which is a complex social process building off of social psychology principles, motivational constructs, and corporate culture. Brainstorming is commonly portrayed as an easy way to generate ideas, but in reality, it is a complex social process that is often flawed in ways that are not self-evident. Chapter 2 discusses Brainwriting, which is a variation on brainstorming in which each person writes ideas down on paper and then passes the paper to a new person who reads the first set of ideas and adds new ones. Since there is no group shouting out of ideas, strong facilitation skills are not required, and more often than not, Brainwriting results greatly exceed those of group brainstorming in a shorter time because ideas are generated in a parallel, rather than serial, fashion. Brainwriting is useful when time is limited, groups are hostile, or you are dealing with a culture where shouting out wild or divergent ideas might be difficult. Finally, in Chapter 3, readers learn about Braindrawing, a method of visual brainstorming that helps practitioners generate ideas for icons, other graphics, user interface layouts, or Web page designs. Each of these methods provides readers with ways to generate, present, and evaluate ideas so they can begin building a strong foundation for product success. Learn the proper techniques for generating ideas with limited time, hostile audiences, and limited facilitation support Explores efficient processes for analyzing the value of ideas Examines ways to generate visual as well as textual ideas

Creative ability is most frequently the opposite of good judgment. Creative ability includes the tendency to experiment with novel ideas that might be unsound. It includes a good deal of the gambler’s spirit where the individual “sticks his neck out” and tries something new, perhaps even “wild” or “crazy.” Therefore, by its very nature, creative ability is on the opposite end of the scal...

Book Description :

Embracing the Counterintuitive Side of Collaboration Think of your to-do list at work. Chances are the most important tasks require you to work with others—and the success of those endeavors depends on the effectiveness of your collaboration. According to management expert Leigh Thompson, collaboration that is conscious, planned, and focused on generating new ideas builds excitement and produces what she calls a “creative conspiracy.” Teams that conspire to organize themselves, motivate one another, and combine their talents to meet creative challenges are the hallmark of the most successful organizations. In this book, Thompson reveals the keys to the kind of collaboration that allows teams to reach their full creative potential and maximize their results. She also reveals a host of surprising findings; for example: • Left to their own devices, teams are less creative than individuals • Providing “rules” to teams actually increases inventiveness • Striving for quality results in less creativity than striving for quantity • Fluctuating membership enhances a team’s innovation • Most leaders cannot articulate the four basic rules of brainstorming Thompson combines broad-ranging research with real-life examples to offer strategies and practices designed to help teams and their leaders capitalize on what actually works when it comes to creative collaboration. Creative Conspiracy challenges managers to adopt an unconventional approach to leading teams that, done right, will lead to the creative success of every team—and every organization.

Book Description :

In every decision problem there are things we know and things we do not know. Risk analysis science uses the best available evidence to assess what we know while it is carefully intentional in the way it addresses the importance of the things we do not know in the evaluation of decision choices and decision outcomes. The field of risk analysis science continues to expand and grow and the second edition of Principles of Risk Analysis: Decision Making Under Uncertainty responds to this evolution with several significant changes. The language has been updated and expanded throughout the text and the book features several new areas of expansion including five new chapters. The book’s simple and straightforward style—based on the author’s decades of experience as a risk analyst, trainer, and educator—strips away the mysterious aura that often accompanies risk analysis. Features: Details the tasks of risk management, risk assessment, and risk communication in a straightforward, conceptual manner Provides sufficient detail to empower professionals in any discipline to become risk practitioners Expands the risk management emphasis with a new chapter to serve private industry and a growing public sector interest in the growing practice of enterprise risk management Describes dozens of quantitative and qualitative risk assessment tools in a new chapter Practical guidance and ideas for using risk science to improve decisions and their outcomes is found in a new chapter on decision making under uncertainty Practical methods for helping risk professionals to tell their risk story are the focus of a new chapter Features an expanded set of examples of the risk process that demonstrate the growing applications of risk analysis As before, this book continues to appeal to professionals who want to learn and apply risk science in their own professions as well as students preparing for professional careers. This book remains a discipline free guide to the principles of risk analysis that is accessible to all interested practitioners. Files used in the creation of this book and additional exercises as well as a free student version of Palisade Corporation’s Decision Tools Suite software are available with the purchase of this book. A less detailed introduction to the risk analysis science tasks of risk management, risk assessment, and risk communication is found in Primer of Risk Analysis: Decision Making Under Uncertainty, Second Edition, ISBN: 978-1-138-31228-9.

Inspired by true events, Brainstorm chronicles a handicapped family's struggle to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. A story of personal transformation, it documents their life-and-death struggles and their ability to give so much when they have so little. Their plight is set in stark contrast to the materialism of contemporary society and the ridicule and social rejection they suffer as a result of their handicaps--short term memory loss and epilepsy. Garnet Dewitt has been having epileptic seizures for as long as he can remember--some so severe he wakes up in the hospital bruised and battered with no recollection of what happened. Finally, doctors are able to isolate the area of his brain responsible for the seizures. But during surgery, something goes terribly wrong and it's unclear if he will ever recover. In the meantime, his handicapped wife Ella, struggling with rejection and dwindling finances, has a terrible fall that lands her in hospital and doctors discover she has a brain tumor that must be operated on immediately. But, she slips into a coma and enters a dark and eerily surreal world. Debbie Dupree, a successful realtor and the epitome of a capitalist machine, is her only hope for survival. Debbie starts helping them to ease her guilty conscience just as her own life begins to unravel. But is she too late?

It often feels chaotic rather than dynamic being a woman. Every day is different. Am I a size 10 today, or a size 14? Do I feel energised or do I feel like crawling under the duvet and watching Eastenders? Even our interest in sex bobs about, seemingly from minute to minute. And we mentally cross off the days when our hormones are in flux - chalking our bad moods up to PMS and waiting impatiently for our bodies to return to 'normal'. But if we are not 'ourselves' for so much of our lives, then who are we? In Consciously Female, Tracey Gaudet gives women the tools and the techniques to consciously reframe what it means to live inside a woman's body. So instead of crossing off the days we feel bad, we will learn to understand them as part of an important cycle which adds emotion and physical feeling to our lives - we will become 'consciously female'. Integrating conventional and alternative medicine, the book provides us with a complete wellness programme, including advice on nutrition, exercise, rituals and mind-body techniques. It's wonderfully positive, practical and inspirational - it's for every woman.

Book Description :

Callsign: King - The Brainstorm Trilogy is a complete collection of three novellas featuring Jack Sigler, aka, King, the lead hero in Jeremy Robinson's Chess Team. The collection is 144,000 words, far longer than any of the Jack Sigler novels and jam-packed with cool science, high-octane action and strange creatures. The trilogy is less than buying each novella separately. Summaries: CALLSIGN: KING - Book 1 The fabled Elephant Graveyard has been discovered. It contains enough ivory to make Ethiopia a wealthy nation. But the cave contains more than physical riches—it also holds the means to control the world. Fifteen scientists enter the cave. Only one leaves. Jack Sigler, Callsign: King (field leader of the covert, black ops Chess Team) receives a cryptic text from Sara Fogg, his girlfriend and CDC ‘disease detective’. A catastrophic disease has been reported in Ethiopia’s Great Rift Valley, but Fogg suspects something more is going on. Her suspicion is confirmed when King’s arrival in Africa is met by a high speed assassination attempt. As King fights against two competing, high-tech mercenary forces, each struggling for control of the deadly discovery, Fogg disappears. Working with the surviving member of the science team that made the discovery, King begins a search for Fogg and the source of the potential plague that takes him back to the Great Rift Valley, back to the Elephant Graveyard, and brings him face-to-face with modern man’s origins. CALLSIGN: KING - Book 2 – UNDERWORLD Strange things have always happened in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona… Bizarre lights, reports of cave entrances that appear and then vanish, hundreds of mysterious disappearances…and rumors of monstrous creatures that inhabit a labyrinthine underworld. When a terrifying accident on an Arizona highway leads to a military exclusion zone and a cover-up of staggering proportions, Jack Sigler—Callsign: King, field leader of the elite and ultra-secret covert Chess Team—joined by his closest friend, archaeologist George Pierce, sets out into the desert, intent on discovering the truth. Assisted by a beautiful paranormal investigator, dogged by soldiers intent on preserving the quarantine, and pursued by a relentless legendary hitman, King soon finds himself in a race against time to prevent all out war with the creatures that inhabit the underworld. CALLSIGN: KING - Book 3 – BLACKOUT Twice before, Jack Sigler—Callsign: King—has stopped the mysterious ‘Brainstorm’ from destroying all life on earth. Twice before, he’s survived Brainstorm’s assassins. So when the mastermind behind Brainstorm surfaces in Paris, King goes on the offensive. As the final showdown unfolds in the legendary City of Lights, the villain’s scheme to plunge the world into literal darkness is revealed. But even Brainstorm isn't ready for the destructive force that has been unleashed…an entity of darkness imprisoned for more than a thousand years, set free now to devour...everything. The blackout has begun… When the sun rises, the world will end. PRAISE FOR THE JACK SIGLER THRILLERS “Rocket-boosted action, brilliant speculation, and the recreation of a horror out of the mythologic past, all seamlessly blend into a rollercoaster ride of suspense and adventure.” —James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author THE DEVIL COLONY “With THRESHOLD Jeremy Robinson goes pedal to the metal into very dark territory.

Book Description :

Idea generation has been a topic of creativity research for over half of a century. First proposed by Osborn, brainstorming has grown to be the most popular idea generation technique. Brainstorming is an idea generation technique that focuses on using quantity to breed quality. Laboratory studies show that brainstorming productivity can be greatly improved by reducing hindrances such as evaluation apprehension, production blocking, and social loafing. Based on these findings, researchers have attempted to build electronic tools that allow brainstorming participants to propose ideas to the group anonymously in parallel to assist the idea generation process. Although these electronic systems show great promises in laboratory conditions, they have failed to reach critical success in the field. Creativity research shows that there is a lack of understanding of how creativity is evaluated in the domain of software development. We conducted an observational study on Microsoft's idea generation practices. Based on the field study results, we designed a survey and deployed it at Microsoft and Google. Our findings suggest brainstorming is used very differently when compared to Osborn's original vision. Although software teams at Microsoft and Google have different idea cultures, they use idea generation to iteratively discover constraints that could be used to shape the solution boundary and verify feasibility of a proposed solution. Instead of trying to generate ideas in quantity, software teams use brainstorming meetings to encompass different possibilities and alternatives whereas impromptu idea discussions are used to explore an idea in greater depth. We propose an idea generation model based on the empirical results. We discuss design implications and propose future studies that could lead to better understandings and improvements of the idea generation process.
