When you’re looking for better solutions when faced with a challenge, what do you do? Do you pull everyone together and brainstorm? Do you break out the whiteboard? Do you break out Doug Hall’s new book, Jump Start Your Business Brain : Ideas, Advice, and Insights for Immediate Marketing and Innovation Success ?
How about this idea from Creating Customer Evangelists: How Loyal Customers Become a Volunteer Sales Force : when you’re looking for a solution to a problem/challenge, tape a sheet of paper to your office door. Anyone visiting your office must add an idea to the sheet before entering the office.
That’s got possibilities!
