There are several brainstorming tools online but most of these are ultimately lists with nice graphics. Yutongo is a nice tool with a unique take on online brainstorming and collaboration. This website offers teams a way to think of new ideas and understand them in many different ways.
This tool starts with creating a challenge, which could be processes or issues that your team is stuck with. This is also the initial idea which other ideas will be based on. The “ideation” can be given different criterion, with each criterion taking a different angle. Each criterion is also broken down into sub-questions that can be discussed by your team members. Finally, whatever new idea that comes up from these discussions becomes your set of idea fragments.
The concept of this website seems too abstract at first, but it really is about thinking better ideas by asking better questions. This tool helps you look at things differently so you can ask questions that have never been asked before within the team, or illicit answers that a traditional brainstorming process may not be able to cover.
You can also archive the project so that you can look back on your ideas and find inspiration for new projects and challenges. Yutongo is most useful for online participants, although you can run this app while in a live meeting. To see Yutongo in action watch 4 step demo video:
