CTS Assignment 03
After working in some workshops facilitated by your
tutors regarding mind-mapping and other exercises,
you would have obtained and generated some ideas!
There would have been some strategies, which you
have used to provide the subject matter to work with.
But would this be enough? Can we take this further?
Can this be an original idea? How far can you go to
innovate? Remember the formula:

Imagination + creativity = innovation!

Imagination: your mental abilities to brainstorm and
present your ideas!
Creativity: the ability to translate the imagination onto
surface! Sketching and illustrating them.
Innovation: modifying them further and bringing them
to life!
Synectics is the process of bringing all the process of
modifications and hybridization together to form an
original idea! However lets use SCAMPER!

The Brief:
Use SCAMPER technique to stretch the existing idea
and create an original idea! This will involve
combinations and the synectic process!
Select the best idea from your ideation mind-maps,
workshops/exercises and subject this idea to seven
processes of SCAMPER.

Idea 01

Substitute - Idea 2

Eliminate - Idea 7
Reverse or rearrange
- Idea 8

Pick one of the SCAMPER ideas, which best fulfills your

goal and objective!

Use that final idea to create the final prototype!

Bear in mind, that you might subject it to more
modifications as you are constructing it! That is okay as
along as you indicate this in your IDJ!
