Create brainstorming diagrams rapidly from examples and templates!
Brainstorming is a creativity technique in which ideas are generated in order to solve a problem. The main result of a brainstorm session is a solution to a problem. The solution can be an idea, which is a complete solution to the problem. It can be a list of ideas, leading to an approach to a subsequent solution of the problem. Or it can be a list of ideas resulting into a plan to find the final answer. Brainstorming was originated by Alex Osborn. A good brainstorming diagram is an excellent tool to help your team arrive at the best ideas and plans. Brainstorming diagrams help you develop any system of related ideas or information by showing interrelationships among topics in a hierarchy. They improve clear associative thinking and communication, which encourages creativity and problem solving.

A brainstorming diagram typically has three main visual components: a main topic, subtopics, and peer topics. The main topic is the central theme of the diagram. In the brainstorming diagram above, "Marketing Plan" is the main topic.
A subtopic connects to and is subordinate to the main topic (or another subtopic). In the diagram above, "Promotion" is the subtopic of "Marketing Plan" and "Trade shows" is the subtopic of "Promotion."
A peer topic is a topic at the same level in the hierarchy as the selected topic. The topic "Price" in the brainstorming diagram example is the peer topic of "Promotion." The following template is some logic shapes for draw a brainstorming.
