Monthly Method Spotlight: Starbursting


When/why: Bombard an idea or topic with questions to provide valuable brainstorming insight. This is a useful tool for helping you to understand all aspects and options fully.

How: Brainstorm questions starting with each of the question words. Don’t try to answer any of the questions as you go along. Instead, concentrate on thinking up as many questions as you can.

Tips: Approach this tool systematically and create a list under each question word as you go around the 5 points.
