Initial deep dive research for The Open Innovation Toolkit, a community sourced set of best practices and principles to help you incorporate human-centered design into your product development process. Lead an industry project for Mozilla which consisted of 12 students to experiment with the future of browsing the web. Ok but what is it... ? A collection of workshops and methods that support open source practitioners to build better ideas and products.


I deep dove into the open-source universe to find best practices around open, collaborative method and how companies share knowledge, work, or influence in order to shape a market towards their business goals. The research ended up becomeing a framework of open-practices.


“Having CIID as a partner to arrive at a framework of open practices was an amazing journey. Also we had some great ideas from the IDP students for the future of browsing.”
