Use this technique to build on options in silence.

When to brainwrite:

To generate ideas that are easier to implement
To generate options with introverted, quiet people
When an intimidating person is in the group
When you can't get everyone in the same location and you need to use a virtual collaboration system

How to brainwrite:
1.  Create one worksheet per person (plus one extra) with a grid of 3 squares across and 3 down.
2.  Write your question at the top of the page.
3.  Each individual writes one option per square across the top row.
4.  As you finish, exchange your form for the extra sheet. Build on the options already written, or create new ones.  Write three more options on a new row, then switch again.  Repeat!

Here's an example:
