Solving Problems At Work
For a brainstorming session to be successful, the problem needs to be clearly defined, enough time needs to be scheduled, participants should take time to think through the problem and generate solutions, and solutions should not be judged during the brainstorming.Once a good number of options have been gathered, the next step is to go through the alternatives and narrow down the ones that are most viable.Additionally, choosing an alternative could entail making compromises and some parties would have to make concessions therefore, there is a possibility that not everyone would be happy with the final solution.However, at some point the decision making process will have to come to an end.
The last step in brainstorming is deciding the best solution among the top alternatives available.

You can do this by volunteering to participate in brainstorming groups or sessions and offering your input and ideas as well as listening to contributions from your colleagues.
In addition, take a step back and write down the desired results, when they should be achieved as well as how the results will be measured i.e.
what is expected after the problem has been eliminated or handled – imagine how it would be like when the problem is solved.
