This is also called a Cascade Session and Idea Writing and is similar to the 6-3-5 method.
- Each group member writes down ideas silently on a piece of paper. These might be stimulated by an idea already generated.
- After three minutes the person passes the paper to his or her neighbor, who uses the ideas already written as triggers for, or stepping stones to, some new ones.
- The process is repeated for as long as necessary, and the sheets are collected.
Other techniques can then be used to develop the most promising ideas.
