Solving that Problem.

Today I came across a problem solving technique that I have not heard of before. It is called SCAMPER.

Each letter of the word stands for a technique that you can use which will help you to look at your issue differently and to find new ways around it.

S = Substitute
C = Combine
A = Adapt
M = Magnify
P = Put to Other Uses
E = Eliminate (or Minify)
R = Rearrange (or Reverse)

I highly recommend that you visit Litemind where I saw the post. It gives you a wonderful explanation of each term as well as a demonstration of how it can be used.
