Pilot – Design Kit – IDEO.org

A Pilot is a longer-term test of your solution and a critical step before going to market. During a Pilot you’ll fully execute on your idea finding out if it truly works the way you envisioned by running it with all the staff, space, and resources necessary. You’ll learn if your idea really is desirable, viable, and feasible, and what it might look like to do it at scale. If it’s a success, you’ll head to market. This resource page also shows what the time needed for this activity, the level of difficulty, the materials needed and participants required.
