How ThoughtOffice Idea Software Works:

ThoughtOffice began as the classic IdeaFisher Creativity Software. Marsh Fisher, a Godfather of the lateral thinking movement (alongside Tony Buzan and Genrich Altshuller of Mind Mapping and TRIZ fame, respectively).

Marsh interviewed and studied hundreds of the world’s brightest minds. In the process, he realized that the way the creative mind works is through Associative Thinking. One thought leads to another and another based on three factors:

1) What you know (the cumulative knowledge in your own head)

2) What questions you ask, and the sequence of those questions, and…

3) Your environment. What problem you need to solve, and why.

These factors combined lead to a very specific process for brainstorming:

1) Define the problem with as much detail as possible.

2) Provide unrestricted access to lots of ideas and “Thought Particles”: components of ideas, fragments of thoughts that hold the seed of a promising solution when combined with other thought particles.

3) A simple, unrestricted but organized format to combine these idea fragments to arrive at a final solution. A palette for your ideas, so to speak.

ThoughtOffice provides all of those elements in a very fast, easy to use software appication.

Beginning with a blank canvas (a Session or Brainstorming Session), ThoughtOffice invites you to try one of three paths:

1) Start writing out your problem or idea. Add images, links and style your text to allow you to see the issue clearly.

2) Explore the Expert Topic Modules where hundreds or even thousands of questions are immediately at your disposal to help you “drill down” on an issue. Also called “peeling the onion”, these Topic Modules have the combined brain trust of 217 of the world’s greatest minds. These are the questions THEY ask when they are trying to solve real problems.

3) Find words and thoughts within these questions – and find answers within the Ideas Browser: A group of internet enabled tabs that allow you to explore, in real-time, millions of images, definitions, synonyms, quotes, song lyrics, keyword searches – the fragments of ideas that you need to generate plenty of “A-HA!” moments. Then simply add them to your Brainstorming Session with a single click of the mouse.

The process is natural. It’s the way our minds work when we turn off the filter and allow the ideas to flow. ThoughtOffice is merely an amplifier for your ideas. It’s a brainstorming partner who is always available, always sharp, never lacking in great ideas.

ThoughtOffice is an idea generating machine. Or an idea perfecting platform. It also provides the clearest sharing options available (nothing like sharing your brilliant idea, just to have your readers turning the document upside down trying to make heads or tails of it. It should be easy to decipher and fast to grok when you hand your ideas to others).

Here are some of the things you get with ThoughtOffice:

• More than 10,985,690 words, phrases, quotes, definitions and images updating at between 12,000 and 15,000 related terms per week provide creative fuel.

• An integrated Brainstorming Session – a canvas to develop your ideas.

• Up to 13,700 questions (250 to 2,200 per Topic Module) let you drill down on 16 different business and creative-critical topics.

• The ability to link documents, images, link to web pages and blogs from within your Session.

• Date and Time Stamp each entry in our outline: add time tracking to your creative process (valuable when you’re billing clients for your ideas, or coaching an executive).

• Final output as Text, styled PDF, Outline, Storyboard or HTML.

• A Slideshow presenter allows you to review or present your idea one slide at a time, one thought particle after another. A great way to share your idea yet maintain total control of the delivery.

• Add your Brand (image or text), your name and a © Copyright notice to your Session – maintain ownership of your ideas.

• Sessions can be protected (with our integrated DRM) and shared with other ThoughtOffice owners for collaborative idea generation.

• Add intelligence to MindMaps. ThoughtOffice puts Brains inside the Bubbles.

• All available at the click of a mouse.
