Random Word Brainstorming Template

Generate and collaborate on creative ideas with your team.

With Miro's Random Word Brainstorming template, you have a structure to conduct the random words technique online with your teams to come up with new, creative ideas. The random words technique is used to spur new ideas and creative thinking around a problem or challenge you have. By using an unrelated word as a starting point for brainstorming around a new team project, members can think outside of the box and build associations between the random word and the task at hand to think of innovative ideas.

About the Random Word Brainstorming template

What is the random word technique?

Random Word Brainstorming technique is the most basic, simple and creative technique where you use a random word to generate new ideas and find creative solutions to your problems. By getting a random word as a prompt and forcing yourself to use it to find a solution you are almost guaranteed to go beyond the boundaries and attack the problem from a different direction to normal.

How to start a random word brainstorm

The first thing you need is the random word itself which is classed as the initial stimulus. Next, you establish a bridging idea, which is an idea based on the stimulus. This is used as a connection between the stimulus and an idea which you could add to your solution.

The simple way to get a word is a random word generator, but if you want, you can use any source (tweets, books, etc.). After finding a word, extract its underlying principles and then apply them to your case to see how they can be connected.
