Mensa Process has put together a bunch of MENSA members and made them available for client work and problem solving. It's an interesting approach, that brings new meaning to capturing the 'the wisdom of crowds'. It's simply a very smart crowd!
The concept is simple. A pre-selected and recruited panel of Mensa members and subject matter experts are available on a consulting basis to tackle tough problems, build brands and invent new products and ideeas. Mensa Process (which has licensed the rights from Mensa International) claims that they screen not just on brainpower, but also on creativity (not sure what their criteria is). I'm not totally convinced that using geniuses (or is it genii?) (That's why I'm not a Mensa member) guarantees better answers than you'd get from generally creative and passionate innovators.
But I would have to agree from my own experience that in brainstorming sessions, not all participants are created equal. In my experience, collaborative innovation and brainstorming is often about building upon others' ideas. Wonder how well this well-endowed group does in that category?
Any experience with this group from readers?
