The Key Skill – Deferral Of Judgement
Our first instinct when confronted with an idea is to judge it.
But with Basadur the overriding requirement is to do the opposite during ideation. It’s called deferral of judgment: moving away from judging or shutting down ideas to letting ideas come to light in the absence of criticism and instant over-analysis.
The reasoning is simple: open-ended discussion, freedom of thought and successful problem-solving can only take place when people are not simultaneously forming opinions and jumping to premature conclusions.
