So, on one of my telework days, I had to take a required security training. While in the learning management system I also found another little tutorial on a different topic – reverse brainstorming.
Interesting concept – start the brainstorm with the problem and start finding ways to make the problem worse. Somehow through that process of thinking through the problem in this way, the opposites (the way to make the problem better) emerge.
Reverse engineering, reverse thinking, reverse approach to problem resolution…
Sometimes little changes in our work approaches can reverse the typical results – in a good way.
