What is SCAMPER ?

A method used for improving Products and Services

It can often be difficult to come up with new ideas when you're trying to develop or improve a product or service.

This is where creative brainstorming techniques like SCAMPER can help. This tool helps you generate ideas for new products and services by encouraging you to think about how you could improve existing ones.

About the Tool

SCAMPER is a mnemonic that stands for:
Substitute
Which materials or resources can be changed in order to improve the product?
Which other product can be used?
Which parts can be replaced?
Does the product have different possible applications?
Combine
What would happen if the product is combined with another product? Would that lead to a new end product?
Can the product also be used for another purpose?
With what can the product be combined in order to maximise its use?
Adapt
Can this product be adapted to another use?
In which different context can the product be placed?
How can the product be adapted to make it function even better?
Modify/Magnify
How could the shape or appearance of the product be changed?
What can be added to the product?
What could be emphasised about the product to add value?
Which part of the product can be changed in order to create something new?
Purpose
Can the product be used for a different purpose?
Who else could use this product?
How would the product behave in a different context?
Can the product’s waste be reused or recycled?
Eliminate/ Minify
How would the product look if we were to simplify it?
What features and/or components can be left out?
How can the product be made smaller, faster or lighter?
What would happen if we remove part of the product?
Rearrange/ Reverse
What would happen if the product is reversed?
What would happen if parts of the product are assembled in a different order?
Answers
The answers can vary and will always include ideas that are impractical or do not suit the circumstances. However, just like in brainstorming, the goal is to generate as many ideas as possible. That is why it is recommended to use the SCAMPER Technique in combination with other creative thinking methods.
