Predictable Innovation, realized.

We are the living heritage of Diffusion of Innovations and the original creators of The Chasm model. We use this knowledge to help startups, mid-market and enterprise companies accelerate new product revenue and win new markets. We also help Series A/B scale-ups transition their market position from a technology + product narrative to a differentiated industry-insider narrative to win in competitive markets.

Our deep technology adoption and tech markets understanding comes with a big responsibility: we must fight against go-to-market and innovation misconceptions and hypes that are killing countless products.

why we exist

          Crushing inefficiencies of innovation commercialization.

95% of new
products fail.

Time and time again, we see technology and software products fall victim of growth hacks, ads, features overdevelopment, and countless hyped tactics not aligned with potential technology or innovation buyers.

We help new
join the 5% club.

We're are focused on helping B2B Tech/SaaS leaders strategize, validate and execute winning go-to-market and positioning strategies to accelerate revenue by making products and brands more "buyable" and desirable by buyers.

Backed by our proven methods
for B2B tech-based products.

Our strategy frameworks for tech, popularized in "Crossing The Chasm" book, have been proven and refined in over 200+ products during 30 years. With them, we've helped CEOs, Founders, Product Marketers and Commercialization leaders accelerate their P/M Fit and drive mainstream buyer acceptance.

We want all innovations to have a fighting chance.

We love technology — we specialize in it! From the first manmade fire to AI/ML and other world-changing technologies, we believe each innovation has the potential to move humanity forward. They just have to follow the Technology Adoption pattern to succeed.

That's why we challenge the go to market misconceptions and hypes that destroy meaningful product survival chances. No product should fail before it has a shot at being the next greatest thing.


Pledge for carbon removal innovations

Innovation will play a critically important role in helping fight climate change. We’re building the capabilities to support these world-changing technologies to succeed, and in the meantime, we donate a fraction of our revenue to help new carbon removal technologies scale.

Hi there! Thanks for your interest on learning more about us. As a founder, every single sign of interest and curiosity on what we do counts!

Since I was born, I've learned the arts of the old entrepreneurship: my grandfather was a farmer entrepreneur, my father a carpenter entrepreneur, and my mom was a real estate entrepreneur. I helped all of them and learned every single day with them.

I define myself as a management and strategy scholar. I don’t stop learning both from the field and from continuous education. I’m MBA from IESE Business School and Disruptive Strategy certification from Harvard University. Probably my next step is to teach what I’ve learned over all these years.

My curiosity drives me to create new methods and frameworks by putting together the sciences of management, go-to-market, and innovation, with a strong foundation on human behavior and motivations — human-centered design —  to help founders and leaders succeed with their ideas, products, and commercialization plans.

I founded Predictable Innovation to help innovations and technology-based products succeed fastest so that we can push human progress forward through better innovations and products.

Throughout my career, I led business development, sales, and go-to-market teams as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) in B2B software companies in the United States and Europe.

In 2015, I also ideated and launched a B2C commercial real estate innovation that disrupted the market with a new, digital business model.

As Chief Commercial Officer for software companies,  I've helped to drive 2x growth and 3x EBITDA.

Warren Schirtzinger
Senior Strategy Consultant... and an authentic marketing pioneer!


My grandfather was a professor at Ohio State University along with Everett Rogers, so I learned all about “Diffusion of Innovations”.

I pioneered the development of the Innovation Adoption Lifecycle, “The Marketing Chasm" (later popularized in Crossing The Chasm), the Customer Alignment Lifecycle™, and the Low-Risk Recipe™. Some of the frameworks we have at Predictable Innovation to accelerate tech-based products diffusion and adoption.

Among my key achievements are the development ofthe go to market strategy for several of the most significant technological innovations of the last twenty years, including the likes of Apple, Adobe, Harman International, Intermec, MicroConnex, Audion Labs, BioScan, Pacific Horizon Ventures, and many others.

Along my 30+ years of career, I've helped to bring to market 200+ technology-based products.

How your buyers decide?

Our 6 frameworks — 3 intellectual property— uphold the science of how humans buy innovations and technologies. They follow the predictable patterns of the Technology Adoption Lifecycle, a sociological model popularized by Everett Rogers in The Diffusion of Innovations, and later in the book "Crossing The Chasm".

During the last 30 years we've been refining these models, uncovering the 12 key decision-making drivers for tech buyers in every maturity phase of a market category.

Use the graphic on the left to explore the 12 intangible elements that technology-based products must have in order to differentiate and win in the mainstream or past P/M fit.

Learn our key frameworks

              Five principles we live by.


Market first.

The market knows best, that's a fact. Every strategy we craft is driven by qualitative market data about your category, our deep experience in technology adoption and the key drivers in technology buying decisions.


Bring the market to you.

We believe the market positions your product, not you. And we also believe your product’s buy-ability is more critical than your sell-ability to sustainably attract and convince buyers.


Fit with the market, again.

We recognize the ever-changing motivations and needs of technology buyers, and we work to fit your strategy with the market lifecycle phase your product is in as the key to outperform average growth.


Seek to sustain.

We believe a strong go to market strategy outperforms short-term tactics by building differentiators and moats — other than technology and features — that make businesses hard to copy or fail in the long-run.


Drive impact.

Strategy impact may be difficult to measure, so we offer ways to build observable value to clients, partners, and society.
