What is the Innovation Pipeline® and H4X®?

Open Question Icon

The Innovation Pipeline® is an end-to-end framework for teams to select and advance the right opportunities through discovery and experimentation. It clarifies how and why specific methods and tools can be useful for government teams at scale, whether you are using agile development, design thinking, change management, Scrum, and more.

HACKING 4 "X" (H4X)® is our problem-centric approach for making rapid progress through transition points. It was designed for government program managers to connect activities from the invention of an idea to the adoption of a new capability.

Both are in use at diverse organizations like the Office of Naval Research, Advanced Research Project Agency for Health (ARPA-H), Defense Logistics Agency, Transportation Security Administration, Defense Intelligence Agency, Army Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office, and more.
