Brainstorming is another known method for encouraging random interaction of ideas.

It takes quite extended practical exercise in order a person to express his non logical thoughts and refrain from criticizing such thoughts when expressed by others. In such circumstances there is always the hope that mutual encouragement will create many ideas and their random interactions will produce even more ideas which none team member would have thought otherwise.

A useful technique for the production of impressive new ideas is one to expose himself deliberately to a multitude of stimulation by hanging about in a place full of things not likely to be exposed to under normal circumstances; a big store or an exhibition or even a library could be the suitable environment -even better when this environment has nothing to do with the problem.
