The Innovation Pathway is Jende’s proprietary approach to creating idea-to-impact, technology-driven change. It is used to develop deep understanding of anti-fragile tooling within higher education and healthcare organizations.

Innovation Pathway Medium


Run, Enhance and Grow

The Innovation Pathway is based on close to a decade of experience and the deployment of anti-fragile innovations at institutions like the University of Texas System, HIMSS, DaVita, US Oncology, Envision Healthcare, and AMSURG. It combines the most important elements of running quick experiments, rapid prototyping using agile frameworks, and creating an extremely disciplined process through which great anti-fragile innovations can mature.
