Purpose:
To help generate new ideas by thinking differently.
This allows either a team or an individual to look at a problem/opportunity from a range of perspectives. You start with the existing concept, problem or opportunity, then apply 7 challenges suggested. Once applied you see a series of alternatives that you can then chose to action.
