Alignment With Mozilla Goals

Prototype the future


Teams across Mozilla are working on introducing and becoming familiar with a more agile and faster method of product development (lean start-up, design thinking, early validation etc).

By unifying on the tools and definitions used across Mozilla, we decrease the friction and thereby increase the internal adoption of relevant methods into Mozilla’s day-to-day working practices..

The toolkit aims to:

  • Define a common set of innovation tools and methods that Mozillians can use as a distributed, open workforce and community.
  • Provide support for teams that are looking to expand their use of said set of methods.
  • Help build an internal mental model for product innovation.
