About my Idea Generation Methods website
By Martin Leith Skip to Index
This website lists and explains every idea generation method I've encountered during the past 15 years. It is the result of extensive research; my many sources include books, management journals, websites, academics, consultants and colleagues.
The methods have been drawn not just from the worlds of creative problem solving and innovation, but also from other worlds such as organisational change, strategic planning, psychotherapy, the new sciences and the creative arts.
The methods are listed below. Each is linked to a description, and in some cases you will find full instructions for using the method to generate ideas.
