We find that an innovation funnel is a useful visual to see what steps or gates there are to move an idea through to development. We attach one to this post which is useful. To us it represents high level steps in a project. You can see more about projects on other blog categories.
We have never used this particular one but the critical think for all creators is to eat the elephant in small bites. So many creators simply jump mentally to the finished product. You ahve to go through the steps or gates or high level deliverables to get to the end. There is no other way.
You will need to lean into your team, your resilience, and your patience to follow this up. Don’t expect miracles, wait for the steps. Enjoy the journey and keep the next gate in mind.
