IdeaFisher Add-On Modules

IdeaFisher Add-On Modules offer added dimensions of creative support. Each module takes a proactive approach, asking open questions that start broad then become increasingly focused. Each question is designed to generate ideas and direct the flow of creative activity to a meaningful outcome.

This process offers several benefits:

  • Your thinking is directed along the same lines as that of established experts in the topic areas. IdeaFisher solicits hundreds of professionals with expertise in the topics at hand.
  • Each expert then offers a volume of questions that represent their understanding of the field. These questions are distilled to a core group which are then carefully sequenced, fine-tuned, and tested.
  • Module topic questions are chosen to systematically drive you to key decisions. This makes IdeaFisher an “expert system” that operates exactly as would a personal consultant.
  • You can take the words from your answers and look up these words up in the IdeaBank, finding new associations that move you toward creative solutions. Each word in your answers serves as a new question: “How can I use (this word) to move toward my creative objective?”
  • IdeaBank can explode the word into thousands of new associations triggering new creative solutions.

    Here is a summary of each module…
