A instant Brainstorming process in a box
on 25 November 2007
These cards are a distillation of the SCAMPER brainstorming technique; each card contains a `question' or a thought to be applied during brainstorming activities. The cards are nearly a word for word breakdown of the SCAMPER method as described in the Thinkertoys book. The pack comes with a small booklet which describes various way of using the cards and in addition it contains a number of cards detailing how to assess the results of the brainstorming.
If you are short of time and want an `instant' brainstorming process then these cards are very good. If you have more time buy the thinkertoys book and develop your own brainstorming approach; the book is packed with other methods and techniques.
I have given these cards 3 stars as there is nothing really new over the book and so aren't the best value for money.
