MITRE Innovation Toolkit Tour
Team Toolkit started as a casual group of diverse innovation enthusiasts at MITRE who began to see patterns and overlap in the types of problems and challenges that our sponsors deal with across government. We asked ourselves how we could think and work more like innovators and help others do the same.
We gathered and curated a collection of innovation tools and methods from across industry, government, and academia and paired it with our own knowledge and experience of MITRE and our Sponsors’ problems. Ever since, we have been iterating and refining the resulting Innovation Toolkit with the goal of democratizing innovation. Today our team perpetuates these innovation practices across the US government and the globe. We invite you to join our community of practitioners and innovators to share how these tools and practices work for you.
We are a cross-disciplinary team of engineers at The MITRE Corporation who are dedicated to providing a creative approach to problem-solving by offering tools, methods, and techniques that lead to data-driven solutions.
