What is brainstorming?

Brainstorming is a creative technique that can be used to generate new ideas, solve problems, and develop creative solutions. The basic premise of brainstorming is to allow a group of people to share their ideas freely without judgement or criticism. This open atmosphere encourages people to think outside the box and come up with new and innovative ideas. This popular ideation method is ideal when you want to create many ideas in a short period of time.
