At some point in the brainstorming process, ideas must also be evaluated. Purely objective criteria are rarely sufficient to really make a statement about which idea should be pursued or implemented. If several people meet for this purpose, it is difficult to get a uniform assessment without major discussions.

With the clear view method, a form of forced ranking, you can introduce the group piece by piece to a suitable and comprehensible prioritisation. This strengthens the motivation for the selected ideas and also helps to understand if one's own favourites do not get a chance at first.
