The method "Drei Gute - Drei Schlechte" provides feedback, evaluations and exchange of views on ideas and projects.
With a direct focus on bad, i.e. negative, aspects of an idea or a project, this method can also be used to involve idea deniers. It is also an easy way to find out what level of knowledge already exists about the task or product.

The knowledge gained here can then flow directly into further idea finding and idea enrichment and, as a nice side effect, also motivate strong critics for the project via the "back door".
