In Ideanote you can launch goal-driven idea collections that center around a challenging question to inspire people to come up with ideas.
We recommend to pose focused, open-ended questions with the How Might We (HMW) method. How Might We questions help people think differently and come up with new, valuable ideas. The better the question, the better the ideas.
Posing too narrow a question might mean you’re already pre-defining the solution. For example “How might we deliver food via drones?”
Posing too broad a question might leave your people wondering what exactly you are looking for. For example “How might we earn more money?”.
It’s all about striking a balance. A good mission question provides people with focus, yet leaves enough room to explore even the boldest of ideas. Ask a question that inspires, instills purpose and is easy to understand.
