What’s inside S.C.A.M.P.E.R. Meeting Template:

1Step 1: Align your team on the problem you’re trying to solve.

This goes without saying for every brainstorm, but it’s important to set clear goals before you start scampering.

Step 2: Begin working through each letter in S.C.A.M.P.E.R.

Here is a breakdown of the method, and some questions to help you get your team’s creative juices flowing.

2 🔄 Substitute

What can be switched out in the current idea?

  • What can you substitute or change from your product, problem, or process?
  • How can you substitute it for something else entirely?

3 🤝 Combine

When you get to this stage, you should consider how to combine two or more parts of your process or product in the hopes of achieving something new and different.

  • Perhaps two of your product features are getting in each other’s way.
  • Can they be combined to create a more efficient customer experience?

4 💡 Adapt

During the “adapt” phase of your brainstorm, think through what can be added, tweaked, or modified in your product or process to make it better.

  • How can we adjust the existing product?
  • How can we make the process more flexible?

5🚀 Modify

Ask what could be possible with major changes.

  • Could you modify the product, problem, or process to improve results?
  • Can you change the process to work more efficiently?

6 ♻️ Put to another use

Can you use this product/process somewhere else?

  • Can the product or process be used in another way?
  • Can you change the process to work more efficiently?

7 ❌ Eliminate

This step is all about purging aspects that do not bring anything to the table.

  • What can be removed or simplified?
  • How can you achieve desired results without it?

8 ⬅️ Reverse

This step is all about purging aspects that do not bring anything to the table.

  • Could your team rearrange or interchange elements to improve results?
  • Is flipping your process on its head something your team should consider?
