Brainstorm with Random Words
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. 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.

So, 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.

With Miro, you can use the Random Words technique online together with your team even if you are located in differents states or countries.
Tip: Use post-its and comments to quickly pin down the ideas.
