Now it's time to dive in and learn about ideation techniques that you can use to unleash the creativity of your team and explore many potential ways forward for your product. So let's get started.
In this installment of UX Design Techniques, Chris Nodder explores a variety of ideation techniques. Chris explains how to brainstorm in a way that lets all members of a team, not just the designers, contribute to a product's overall direction.
