                  Brain Storm.
• Group composition – varied, neutralise or eliminate
  persons who don’t fit in.
• Manner of work: enthusiasm, openness, eagerness,
• Facilitator.
• Work stages: I. brief; II. creative session – associations
  should be as remote as possible, looking for metaphors,
  visualisation, breaking stereotypes, just taking down
  notes without criticising or analysing; III. break; IV.
  critical analysis, choosing best ideas.
• According to the same scheme – detailed sessions
  developing selected ideas.
• Instruments: examples, props, flipchart, activating
     Brain Storm Stages and Rules:
0.    Always a group of at least 3 persons, at most 6
      persons. The facilitator takes down notes, stimulates
      the group, praises, ensures that no single person
      dominates the group, encourages timid people but
      without being too insistent.
•     Brief – clear definition of task, describing important
      circumstances and possible factors.
•     Creative session – we look for the most remote
      associations possible, metaphors, we visualise
      whatever we can (gestures, sketches, pictograms),
      we break stereotypes. MAIN RULE: all, even the
      dumbest ideas must be taken down, absolutely no
      criticism or analysis at this stage.
•     Break – take a breath, distance yourself.
•     Critical analysis, choosing best ideas.
• Brief is a clear presentation of the expectations of the
  museum with regard to a project (or strategy).
• The following things need to be stated very precisely in a
   –   work timetable;
   –   content-related, PR, artistic, educational goals etc.;
   –   recipients;
   –   budget;
   –   required features, conditions, principles.
• You must know what you WANT!
• You must be able to explain this precisely to those who
  execute the brief – staff, Commissioner...
                 Mind Map.
• It is a method of presenting complex processes,
  procedures or structures clearly.
• It allows to fit many pages of hard to understand
  notes on one page in an ordered and appealing
• A Mind Map helps us to order, remember, recall
  and inspire.
• Almost everything can be represented using a
  Mind Map.
              How to Create it?
• The initial concept – keyword, problem No. 1 – is put in
  the middle of the page – it’s best to represent it with the
  help of a visual association.
• We determine the most important groups of issues
  related to it (subjects, associations, tasks). We draw
  them, placing them evenly around the keyword.
• We draw rings around the concepts we’ve drawn; we
  connect rings with “trunks.”
• Subsequent trunks (groups of concepts) grow from the
  centres determined earlier. We have a map of
  associations, of cause-and-effect relationships.
• A well-drawn Mind Map will be our Advisor and
  Assistant, Guide and Enforcer of Order.
