Product development doesn’t always fit in a 10-week sprint

Going fast is great–unless it’s in the wrong direction. Before sinking a lot of time and money into a new initiative or product, many product teams take advantage of our customized Pilot Program.

Our experienced team guides you to apply The Lean Startup to one or more projects at your own pace. Start seeing measurable results quickly and make pivot-persevere-kill decisions with confidence.

Pilot Program

Leverage the expertise of our team as they guide your projects through the same process as the Corporate Innovation Accelerator but at a pace that works for you.

Your Goals

We spend time learning how your company already works, how the Pilot Program fits into your company goals, and how we will measure success.



We work with you to determine the best projects to run through the Pilot Program and charter your project teams to clarify vision, scope, team roles, & timelines.

Learn and Apply
the Lean Startup

We train and coach both executives and project teams to systematically vet, shape, and de-risk projects using The Lean Startup.


After the predetermined timeline running build-measure-learn loops, project teams meet with executives to make pivot-persevere-kill decisions based on validated learning.
