Continuous Innovation Playbooks

Life's Too Short to Build Something Nobody Wants.

Our step-by-step playbooks show you how to go from idea to product/market fit without wasting needless time, money, and effort.

What is a Playbook?

Playbooks are curated step-by-step guides that show you how to take your idea from concept to product/market fit.

Unlike traditional courses that drown you in lots of theory, our playbooks help you focus on practicing the right actions at the right time based on the stage of your idea.

Our playbooks bundle together

  • A stage-based curriculum,
  • Integrated tools, and
  • Personalized coaching from certified mentors.

Where did these playbooks come from and who's using it?

These playbooks were created by Ash Maurya, author of 2 best-selling books and the creator of the Lean Canvas. It synthesizes learning across hundreds of workshops and bootcamps with startup and corporate teams building products spanning a broad spectrum of domains ranging banking to software.


Unlike a book that is hard to change once published, these playbooks continually evolve to reflect the latest techniques that work.

These playbooks have already been deployed across numerous enterprises, accelerators, and universities who use them as their standard innovation/accelerator curriculum.


How are these playbooks delivered?
