'The Brainstorm Session' →

Good points about brainstorming in comic form. Reminds me of the many brainstorming sessions I participated in during school, and how I'd often find myself contributing more if I was given time to think alone and be "creative" beforehand. Impromptu design sessions tend to favor the noisiest thinkers.

The recommended reading at the bottom of the comic is also worth a look - particularly The New Yorker's article on groupthink, cooperation, effective teams, and spontaneity of interactions. Lots of good research cited in there; a must-read for design teams.
