TAKE THE QUIZ

DEFINE: I

Experimentation is the fundamental standard and foundation of Innovation.

Innovation, defined

The very concept of innovation is going through change. Companies take existing innovation models and further advance the frameworks through relentless experimentation and iteration. We help companies employ this process through Rapid Prototyping and various forms of Agile Software Development. We are masters of what we define "Innovation" -  the process of building, customizing, and improving existing systems to discover volatility and accelerate change in order to learn.
