Client PitchAn architectural firm pitches multiple design concepts to the same client. The firm has competition for the contract and multiple concepts increase the chance the firm will be selected.
InnovationA standard innovation approach is to experiment with as many ideas as possible in a lightweight way. This may involve multiple teams and individuals developing concepts and prototypes on a regular basis that are quickly evaluated. In many cases, only a small fraction of early ideas become a product.
