SCAMPER Method

> Explore and brainstorm together

The SCAMPER method helps stimulate creativity in order to find solutions to problems, improve products, dream up changes to an object and more.

Suggestions and variations

It’s best to avoid the whole group working on all the verbs. The activity will become too long and daunting.

  • By assigning two or three verbs to each person or each sub-group, your meeting will be more dynamic.
  • Limit brainstorming on each verb to 10 minutes and set a limit of 10 suggestions per verb, for example.
  • If creativity starts to dry up, skip to other verbs or to selection.
  • Remember to rephrase the question or keywords to reawaken inspiration.
