Our JSYB™ Tools

Having been innovation practitioners for 40 years, we’ve seen the results of having incredible tools at your disposal.  We’ve also seen the effects of being limited by tools and systems that are lacking.

When you want staff to think innovatively, you increase your odds that they will take action with that thinking when your tools help them do it effortlessly, like these. 

Every tool in the collection has been designed with 3 critical requirements:

  1. It is truly useful & relevant.  Every tool must help your staff advance in ways they couldn’t have on their own. 
  2. No training required.  Up and running instantly.  Takes only minutes to use.
  3. It reinforces the right behaviors.  If it’s easy to be innovative, people will be. If it’s not, the odds go down.  These tools make it easy for help your people to apply smarter, faster more innovative thinking to everything and anything.


Classic project management tools are great for projects that don’t change.  But they don’t work well for innovation projects that are fraught with risk and continual change.

Our Innovation Pipeline and Project Management tool gives staff the best of both worlds: the agile, adaptability needed for innovative projects with the discipline and transparency of project management.
