尽管可能的人的观点是可能的，但是在可能的情况下是优选的，remote ideation can be just as effective, and opens up more options如何构建和运行思想生成过程。
In同步ideation sessions, all participants meet together at a specific time to discuss design problems and contribute ideas.
Asynchronousideation does not occur at a specific time, but instead allows each participant to view and contribute to a shared digital space (document, message thread, or other tool) whenever they choose, over a longer period of time.
When we hear the term “meeting,” we immediately picture two or more people getting together. Video meetings, screen-sharing platforms, or even conference calls (perhaps paired with a digital-ideation tool) are common ways to facilitate synchronous ideation.
Benefits of Synchronous Ideation
- Fast exchange of ideas:同步通信有助于快速讨论，以及迅速建立彼此的贡献。
- Focused attention:因为有一个设定的时间限制 - 商定会议的长度 - 团队成员将专注于任务，因此同步会话可以在短时间内获得结果。
- Team building:Direct communication among coworkers (whether on the phone or through a video-communication tool) builds camaraderie and thus facilitates the exchange of ideas in a remote team.
- Scheduling:Finding a common time when all team members are available to meet can be difficult when the team is spread across different time zones or when members have a range of workloads.
- Difficulty selecting the right tool:超出分享一个人的屏幕或流媒体参与者的网络摄像头的工具，并支持同时共享多个想法草图可能很难找到。当然，远程共享工具继续发展，所以希望这个问题在不久的将来会失去相关性。
Sending an email or text message is the simplest form of asynchronous communication, as you don’t necessarily know when the recipient will view or respond to your message. Remote asynchronous ideation may occur through a message thread (e.g. a Slack channel), a collaborative document (e.g. a Google Doc), or another ideation tool.
Of course, asynchronous ideation could also be conducted using a physical channel — for example, ideas can be posted to a bulletin board or a white board in a shared location such as a meeting room or hallway, and team members view and contribute to this space according to their own schedules. But in practice, such physical channels for asynchronous communication are less common than the digital ones.
- Freedom to contribute when convenient:Asynchronous ideation avoids the tricky scheduling issues that synchronous sessions suffer from. People can share their ideas whenever they have time. That means each teammate can work around their own scheduling conflicts and deadlines, while still being able to contribute. Asynchronous ideation can be particularly useful if your company has only a few UX people, who are overloaded and support multiple teams. For the same reason, asynchronous ideation might also work better for fast-paced敏捷schedules.
- 孵化的想法的时间：Asynchronous ideation gives people time and space to think through ideas on their own and frees them from the pressure to be a genius on demand. Often, people need to “mull over” a design problem before they can generate potential solutions. If you have some confident and talkative teammates who tend to dominate synchronous sessions, asynchronous ideation will allow the quieter teammates time to formulate their ideas and contribute without getting talked over.
- 更多的时间追赶：Teammates will need to spend time getting back up-to-speed each time they revisit the shared space, reading through anything that has been contributed since the last time they looked. Depending on how many people are involved and how many ideas are generated, this process may end up taking quite some time.
Asynchronous ideation is great when there isn’t a fast-approaching deadline, giving you the luxury of a longer timeline to contribute ideas. Gathering ideas asynchronously can be a life saver when everyone’s schedule is packed or when the team is spread across multiple time zones.
You can always blend the two methods! You could conduct a synchronous ideation kickoff meeting to talk through the issue at hand and perhaps capture some of the team’s initial ideas, then open up a shared document or thread for people to contribute additional ideas asynchronously for a designated period of time after that meeting. Conversely, you could gather the team’s ideas asynchronously for a few days, then follow up with a shared, synchronous, ideation session.
