Section 2: Canvasing the Enterprise

Validated learning through enterprise lean startup requires coordination and communication across all areas of the organization. Two tools to help businesses align strategy and product are the business model canvas and the lean canvas. These low-tech tools give you a way to talk about your product and to brainstorm plans, in a way that everyone understands, from the coders to the c-suite executives. Let us show you how these lightweight tools can help you convey what you’d like to achieve.

David Bland walks through:

  • The basics of business model generation and the lean canvas
  • How each canvas can be used to de-risk your existing and new product initiatives
  • Designing experiments to align business and product using the canvases and kanban
