Use the SCAMPER framework to help you improve your product or service.

Put two other purpose
Here are some questions you can ask for each of these steps.
What can I substitute to make this better?
How can I substitute the place time materials or people?
What would be the impact of this?
What processes people products are components can be combined to add more value?
Where can I create synergies?
What part of the product or service can be adapted or changed?
What would happen if I modified the process in a certain way?
What if I exaggerated a feature or component more?
Put to other purposes
What other market could use this product or service?
Who else could use this on a slight variation of this?
What would happen if I removed this part or that part of it?
How else could I achieve the solution if I couldn’t do it this way?
What if I did this in a different order?
The whole purpose of these questions is to help generate ideas for improving your product or service.
I love frameworks and acronym tools like this.
