Storyboarding is a fantastic method for accumulating a ton of ideas in a relatively short amount of time. Plus, your team will come out of the exercise with a story that walks through your decision process to share with interested parties.
In the world of brainstorming, storyboarding isn't drawing pictures that represent a story — it's actually a way of bringing ideas together to come to a consensus. It's a great way to bring a large team together to agree on the best answer as fast as possible. Here, one approach to get started:
When you're done, you should have a set of ideas that everyone agrees on that accomplishes the goal you set out to achieve.
Say what you're trying to get out of the session (for example, "A plan for how to get people to recycle more") and why you need to reach that goal "to reduce waste and save energy".
Look at all the ideas and use them to come up with categories or headings. Write those headings on Post-it® Super Sticky Larger Size Notes. Line up ideas under each category on your meeting chart sheets. As a team, go through each idea and decide if it should stay or go.
Once you've picked out the best ideas, arrange them in some kind of order - from most to least important, chronologically, to tell a story - whatever makes the most sense for your goal.
