Crawford Slip Method: How to Mobilize Brainpower by Think Tank Technology
School of Public Administration, University of Southern California, 1983 - Creative thinking - 60 pages
The Crawford slip method involves two main principles: a) The Functional or Behavioral approach to improved performance. b) The Looseleaf (one-sentence-per-slip) technology for assembling and organizing ideas. Of the two, the first is by far the more important. With its How To emphasis you can mobilize many minds in a search for better ways. Attention is on difficulties, troubles, or deficiencies, and on remedial insights matched to them. Materials which you produce are then directive, not merely descriptive. The essence of what this book is all about is: (a) You collect slip information from a variety of people. (b) You classify it into meaningful configurations. (c) You make it available to wider audiences. This technique of writing down ideas, evaluating them and developing procedures from these slips of paper is particularly good for brainstorming think tanks.
