Brainstorming is a regular practice in professional organizations. Several members from single or multiple departments of a company meet together for discussions and sharing of opinions. These are highly effective sessions as new and better ideas on various topics of business operations emanate from here.
The significance of brainstorming lies in the multiple ideas that get generated from these sessions. These sessions include members from different departments or divisions of an organization. Members of different divisions have separate perspectives of any single event. For instance opening of a new market in a foreign location could be inspiring for a marketing team but a matter of skepticism for finance team members. An open brainstorming session attempts to find solutions to such critical and tricky situations.
In this age of online communication, brainstorming sessions have also become digital. With offices existing in different corners of the globe the easiest way of interaction among them is through online communication. Internet or cloud computing allows offices in different locations to connect instantly and regularly. Distribution of notices or instructions through post and courier has largely been replaced by online processes. Online communication is safe, fast, and cheap and therefore has assumed a universal status.
