Working with the Canvas

What is a Canvas?

A canvas is the fastest way to show off all the important bits of your product or business. This one pager pulls together all of the elements included in a section. It’s designed to give internal stakeholders a high-level view of what products are on the product team’s plate, and what each one is looking to achieve. The canvas is available for products, product lines, and portfolio.

The following options are available by default on the product and product line levels:

  • Product name
  • Vision
  • Description
  • Strategy
  • Value

The following options are available on the portfolio level:

  • Value proposition
  • Customer segments
  • Problem to solve
  • Solutions to your problems
  • Advantages
  • Channels
  • Key resources
  • Cost structure
  • Social Good/Sustainability
  • Revenue Streams

All sections are editable, so feel free to change the headers, description and details as needed.

Quick Links to Ideas and Feedback

On the individual product level, the canvas includes quick links to access ideas and feedback linked to the product. By clicking on either, you will be sent to the ideas list with the preset filters for the product in question.
