About ITK

Anyone with experience facing an important challenge or project understands that the job is easier when you have the right tools. The Innovation Toolkit (ITK) is a collection of methods and techniques to help you and your team be more innovative.

Use these lightweight, low-cost, high-impact approaches to frame your team’s problem, understand your users, generate ideas, evaluate options, develop plans, and reduce complexity.

MITRE experts curated this collection to promote structured, systemic creative thinking and problem solving, based on best practices and guidance. The tools stimulate insightful conversations by asking important questions and providing frameworks for capturing the results.

Go beyond brainstorming—make better decisions faster, unlock your team’s creativity, uncover uncommon results, and take action.
