Description

The 6-3-5 method was developed in 1968 by Professor Bernd Rohbach. It also works very spontaneously without much preparation. It also offers a guarantee of success with untrained participants. As a problem-solving method, this technology particularly promotes the generation of new, unusual ideas or solutions in a group of people.

Within a short period of time, a maximum of 108 ideas are generated with 6-3-5.

The designation resulted from the optimal way six participants, who each produce three first ideas and then develop five times each three first or derived ideas further (6 participants, 3 ideas each, pass 5 times).
