PPCO / Praise First

PPCO / Praise First is a tool to enhance convergent thinking. Use this after a brainstorming session when a number of ideas have been discussed and you are now beginning to evaluate the ones that stand out the most.

  • Positives - What are the good things about this idea? What about it works, sparkles, or stands head and shoulders over other ideas? Why is it a good idea?
  • Potential - Where could we go with this idea? How might it open up other opportunities? What are some ways we might be able to build on its promise?
  • Concerns - What holds this idea back? What about it needs to be strengthened to be a solid or irresistable solution?
  • Overcoming Concerns - How do we address concerns about the idea in order to implement it?
