    Hi
    I have never heard of SCAMPER Technique analysis. Does anyone have a template they would be willing to share please, thanks

    To my knowledge, it’s not really an analysis tool, but is a technique to be used during brainstorming to stimulate thought and generate ideas, particularly when coming up with ideas for potential solutions (instead of factors).  It’s just an acronym and doesn’t require a template.
    S – Substitute
    C – Combine
    A – Adapt
    M – Modify
    P – Put to other uses
    E – Eliminate
    R – Reverse/Rearrange

    RDogg is correct.  I use it a a facilitator’s back pocket tool to help generate more improvement/solution ideas when there is a lull in a brainstorm.  You can also provide this list ahead of time to participants to get them thinking prior to the meeting (preface it by “how can we make xxx better by…”)
    Cheers,

    I don’t know where or when but I’ve seen people using two more words for M and R.
    1. Substiute
    2. Combine
    3. Adapt
    4. Magnify
    5. Modify
    6. Put to other use
    7. Eliminate
    8. Rearrange
    9. Reverse
