SCAMPER is used as a guide to help people improve their ideas, to make them better. SCAMPER can be useful to people whose ideas did not work out so well. They can change parts of their products, which are not good, to make it work better. The product may have some parts that would not work well. They may hinder the process of how your product works. They can have an alternate use for their products as well.
