The SCREAM strategy can help guide your organization to come up with innovative solutions that will work effectively and productively. As long as you are in a leadership position you will need to quickly get to the root of your problem and find a way and a way to solve the problem.
The first step in being innovative and creative is to look for areas in your work environment that allow for innovation. It can range from managing your customer relationship, improving your workflow to new processes and new services, developing new products or improving the quality of your existing products. The list is not exhaustive.
Once you find an area to innovate in a new step, you need to identify and frame your opportunity to come up with an action plan on how you are going to innovate. You need to study your current situation and think of some way forward to see which way you want to go. You need to gather relevant data that will ultimately bring you to the forefront with a workable solution. Once you have done this you need to see if the solution works and if necessary the concept works again.
Scream is an ideal tool to assist you in this process. Here’s what you can do:
Replace your current situation with something else
Replacement allows you to come up with new ideas and see what works and whether there are more efficient systems. There have been some babies in the past who were born with a rare condition of lactose intolerance. This means they cannot drink milk because these babies do not make the enzyme lactase which helps break down milk protein which is the only source of nutrition in their constituent years. Therapeutic nutritionist was able to develop an alternative Somilk for children with Durga vitamins and other ingredients that give these fort children a chance to fight for survival.
Combine your ideas with other ideas
On paper it may look perfect but when tested it can prove to be irreversible and unreliable. To see if you can come up with something unique and functional, you need to show that you need to combine your ideas with someone else’s. Think about shampoo and conditioner. There are now conditioner shampoos through two separate products and combinations. These shampoos have more combinations of adding certain types of essential oils and now there are shampoos for different types of hair.
Reverse the situation and rearrange the events
Innovative solutions sometimes reverse the existing situation and can come through the rearrangement of information. Henry Ford asked a common question if the worker did not have to go to work, the work would come to him instead. With some strategic thinking, Ford came up with the idea of a production line where each worker stands next to the conveyor belt and the work comes in its place.
Eliminate redundancy and expand on features
Armal Freze wondered if there was a better way to open a can without using a can opener. What will happen if the can opener is left out? Pop-ups can be born with some creative insights. Ask yourself what protocols, features, and other unnecessary things you are doing that will make you more productive, efficient, and effective without compromising on quality, safety, health, legal, and ethical issues if they are removed.
Adapt and correct
The art of innovation is the ability to adapt to existing situations and come up with effective and efficient solutions. It is possible to bring new ideas in different industries by changing the basic ingredients in a product. The purpose of the Guglielmo Marconi was to promote the use of radio for communication on ships and on shore. It was the beginning of radio broadcasting that is still a part of our lives.
So go ahead and innovate.
