How to use this library

Too many people fail at Continuous Innovation because they start in the wrong place - cherry-picking on tactics or prematurely focusing on outcomes.

I would suggest starting by first internalizing the key mindsets needed to succeed with this new way of working. Then take the requisite time to hone your skills. And finally, put it all together using the playbooks below.

Let's begin.

Mindsets

Start here if you're new to Continuous Innovation principles or want to start by getting the big picture first.

Skills

Hone your skills with the new Continuous Innovation toolset: Lean Canvas, Traction Roadmap, and LEAN Sprints.

    Deconstruct your idea into a set of fundamental assumptions and learn how to bulletproof your idea against the top ten pitfalls that trip innovators.
  • The Continuous Innovation Framework
    Get a bird’s eye view of the framework and tools needed to master the new rules for creating and delivering value continuously to your customers.
  • LEAN Sprints
    Stop burying your breakthrough insights in failed experiments, but rather illuminate your path using two week iterations that help you course-correct before running out of resources.
