Innovative Exploration is a virtual tour of the Menlo Innovations Software Factory™. It describes Menlo's unique approach to software design and development which has been featured in Forbes Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, and other local and national publications. Menlo Innovations was inspired by the creative and productive work environment demonstrated at Thomas Edison's Menlo Park, New Jersey "Invention Factory." Like Edison, the driving factor behind everything Menlo does is to create useful and marketable products that deliver real business value. To ensure project success, Menlo employs techniques from across the technical and managerial spectrum: the Project Management Institute, Alan Cooper's user-centered design, Kent Beck's extreme programming and test-driven development, W. Edwards Deming's quality teaching and more.
