New Feature: Help Guides
Innovation can be hard!
One of our primary goals in developing LaunchPath is to make innovation accessible for anyone, even those who wouldn't include "innovation" in their job title. Help Guides are a big step forward in ensuring our users feel fully equipped for the task at hand.
The main job of an innovator is to define, then test, and then refine, the hypotheses of their innovation that are necessary to evaluate its potential for success. A number of these key hypotheses are quite challenging for the novice – or even experienced – innovator. (We have found that market sizing is particularly challenging!)
Now, when an innovator is working in LaunchPath and is developing their hypotheses, they have in-context guidance to help them effectively express their idea. If the innovator doesn't need this help, they can collapse the Help Guide to focus on their work. (The app will remember their choice.)
As with most everything else in LaunchPath, Help Guides can be customized to your program, so you can be sure your innovators are getting exactly the help they need.
