Enhance Productivity and Efficiency with Stephen’s Innovation Insights

Innovation Insights by Stephen Shapiro

In today’s episode, we explore how changing just one word in a  problem statement can unleash an entirely new range of possible solutions – including new business models.

We explore 3 lenses in particular:

  • #15: SUBSTITUTE – change a word, including but not limited to synonyms.
  • #10: HYPERNYM – use a word that is less specific (more abstract)
  • #15: HYPONYM – use a word that is more specific (more detailed)

I share a wide range of stories from NASA, book creation, meat companies, and restaurants.

This is a powerful example of how subtle changes can have a profound impact on your solutions.

If you really want to better understand how to use the lenses, this is one that you don’t want to miss!
