Negative Brainstorming

It is the opposite of traditional brainstorming. Whereas the classic brainstorming technique is used to find solutions to a problem, negative brainstorming concentrates on solutions that would lead to negative results.


It may be useful for changing the viewpoint and finding new solutions. It is also a good method to use when working with tired or demotivated teams, as finding critical issues and doubts in relation to a project is easier than being constructive and is sometimes more fun.

How to use

You concentrate on a problem and then continue to list all the reasons why it may not be solved or may not work. Then all these negative ideas are transformed into the positive equivalents.
