New product ideas don’t appear out of thin air. Instead, businesses use many creative-thinking techniques to generate product ideas, such as brainstorming, mind mapping, attribute listing, and many more. Use this LAP to help your students understand the importance of ideation to businesses, sources of new product ideas, and creative-thinking strategies.
LAPs (Learning Activity Packages) are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about techniques for generating product ideas, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, ideas (Make it Pay!) for immediate application, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. Click here for a sample of the student section. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 19 slides.
