Breakthrough projects are fraught with pitfalls – as more than 90% of new projects – whether in startups or within large firms – fail. Each attempt at innovation has a unique potential – and commensurately unique risks. To increase your chances of success you need to determine what to focus on, where and when.

The Breakthrough Innovation Loop compliments your existing Agile, Lean Startup and Design Thinking practices with a simple 5 step framework orchestrating strategic and tactical innovation activities.

This presentation provides an overview of the 5 key steps and examples of specific tools you can use at each step. The methodology helps your team maximize the impact of their unique insights into the market and technologies, so they can repeatedly create compelling, breakthrough offerings in a fraction of the traditional time and create new markets that the masses will follow.
