What does blamestorming mean?

Brainstorming who to blame

Blamestorming is when one or more people hold a brainstorming session on who to blame for a mistake or problem. It combines "blame" and "brainstorming."

It is typically done in school or business settings where the stakes for making errors is higher. Blamestorming is not a productive use of time because it takes the place of brainstorming, where ideas can actually be formed.
