During the last several decades, one of the most widely used and successful brainstorming techniques has been SCAMPER. Its name is a mnemonic for Substitute, Combine, Adapt, Modify/Magnify/Minify, Put to other uses, Eliminate and Reverse/Rearrange. The reason it is so popular is because it forces you to look at challenges or problems from a variety of creative perspectives. In so doing, it whacks you out of your usual, rutted mode of thinking and often yields valuable, creative ideas. In short, it’s popular because it delivers results!
The latest addition to the Mind Mapping Insider resources is the world’s largest SCAMPER mind map, with over 200 questions, phrases and words that have been selected to help you with your next creative challenge.
To create this mind map, I compiled SCAMPER questions and words from numerous sources. I captured them in a NovaMind mind map, and then converted them to other popular mind mapping software formats, including MindManager, MindView, iMindMap, MindGenius, XMind and ConceptDraw MINDMAP. Insider members can download this map for your preferred software, and use it as a powerful catalyst any time you need creative solutions. In addition, you can attach your ideas to the SCAMPER words and phrases that triggered them. In other words, this isn’t just an ideation tool, it’s also a template that you can use.
