The Leanstack Continuous Innovation Framework

We have curated the best frameworks, methodologies, tactics, and tools into the continuous innovation framework that help you focus on the right actions at the right time.

The continuous innovation framework was built by innovators for innovators through thousands of hours of testing

Innovation & entrepreneurship is like a martial art. You can’t simply read or teach it; you have to live it. We practice what we teach and the more we coach, the more we learn and share, the better results everyone gets.

The Leanstack playbooks are used by some of the top accelerators, companies, and universities around the world.

Lean Canvas Is Used By Over A Million People That Span Startups, Universities, And Large Enterprises

Lean canvas is a 1-page business plan template created by Ash Maurya that helps you deconstruct your idea into its key assumptions.

It is adapted from Alex Osterwalder’s business model canvas and optimized for lean startups. It replaces elaborate business plans with a single page business model.

Business plans take too long to write, are seldom updated, and almost never read by others but documenting your plan is key.

Lean canvas replaces long and boring business plans with a 1-page business model that takes 20 minutes to create and gets read.

We Help You Create More Successful Products

The Leanstack platform provides online tools, playbooks, and mentor training that help you develop your product pipeline. Our playbooks are delivered over a SaaS platform using a combination of stage-based playbooks, integrated tools, and personalized coaching.

We train your entire team on the continuous innovation framework and we provide step-by-step instructions for growing your specific business model.

Leanstack Was Designed For Virtual Program Delivery

Because of COVID-19, you are likely scrambling to flip your current accelerator to support virtual programming. Without the right tools, this can be daunting. We’re here to help.

Leanstack was built to serve a global audience of entrepreneurs and innovators and has been coaching start-up teams 100% virtually for almost a decade. To date, Leanstack has put thousands of teams through the program from 27 countries.

Leanstack Improves Outcomes

Grow Your Startups Customer Pipeline

The best way to find the next big idea is by carrying lots of ideas in your development process.

With declining costs of product development and first to market advantages, finding the next big idea has increasingly become a numbers game. Even accelerators invest heavily in top-of-the-funnel initiatives like start-up schools in order to reach and brand their offerings to promising start-ups and incubators at the earliest stages.

Leanstack helps you build the top of your customer funnel through flagship content and marketing tools to track and drive engagement. This can be done 100% virtually which helps you source the best ideas from around the world.

Increase Quality By Maximising Your Development Before Wasting Time And Money

The best time to work with teams is at the start of the development process and to determine if the product is correctly structured and can achieve the right traction required to scale.

We are also living in a new world where the playbook for building products has fundamentally changed. The challenge today isn’t building products but uncovering the right products to build. The best time to upskill is early in development — so you can then focus on spending more time accelerating.

Leanstack helps you upskill by reversing the classroom through battle-tested playbooks that teach you how to pitch their ideas, secure early customers, and build the right MVP using the continuous innovation framework.

Measure Investment Readiness Using The Correct Metrics

Good teams practice good habits. These can be measured and used to find high-performance innovation teams.

The early stage is all about investing in the right people and teams — not the solution. The only thing certain is that early solutions will drastically change.

Good teams quickly recognize and kill off bad solutions and eventually find good ideas. Bad teams can’t tell a good idea from a bad idea and they either stick with bad ideas too long or hopelessly fumble good ideas. You need a way to quickly separate good teams from bad teams.

Leanstack helps you make smarter investment decisions by identifying high-performance teams using data heuristics that track skills, activities, and traction.

Mentorship Through A Consistent Approach

The most impactful way for building high-performing teams is through 1:1 business coaching and mentorship. This is also the least scalable activity. It doesn’t have to be and as Leanstack coaches, we can help.

Predictable results come from consistent processes. This is important during the early stage of a solution riddled with extreme uncertainty. If you ask 10 advisors for advice and get 10 different answers, that doesn’t help – it creates needless chaos. This is also called the advisor whiplash.

Leanstack helps you scale by providing a coaching system derived from thousands of hours of coaching that helps you spend more time accelerating.

Track Your Results Using Analytics

Measure, Refine, Improve

The key to improving your product results is through continuous innovation of your own. Cohort analysis, i.e. Measurement in batches versus aggregate, is the gold standard for isolating changes and inferring causality in your assumptions versus wildly changing lots of things and going around in circles. Once you normalize your data across cohorts, you can more easily identify what’s working and double down.

Leanstack helps you measure performance across cohorts, teams, and individuals so you can continuously optimize your programs.
