The GreenfieldProject #poSEEDelki was held at the Digital October Center. This time, the format of the get-together was completely different from usual: the number of ideas you could take away depended not on the lecturer, the GreenfieldProject team, or anyone else, but exclusively on your ability to listen to outside opinion and work as part of a team.
The work format we’d offered was called the “world creativity café.” Participants were divided into several groups and each group was divided into teams. The number of teams equaled the number of people prepared to share their idea. Each idea creator got a flipchart. In a short period of time, the creator described their idea on paper, explaining it to members of their team and working with them on it, writing down suggestions and thoughts that emerged in the process.
After a predetermined amount of time, the team moved onto the next flipchart. Each flipchart remained with one moderator who told each new team coming to the flipchart about the original idea and what had been thought up during the previous brainstorming sessions. The rotation continued until the flipchart describing the idea came back around to its creator. In the end, they could see how their idea had been transformed and drew on all the valuable suggestions the other teams had come up with.
