The CANVAS method allows us to analyse and further develop the agile criteria of our company in a team.

2. Customers

Food for thought

  • Who are our main customers/customer groups?
  • How do customers find themselves in the strategy?
  • What needs do these customers/groups have?
  • How do you assess the needs?
  • How do the needs flow into company?

3. Structure

4. Processes

Food for thought

  • What are the main processes in our company?
  • How are these processes documented? Who creates the documentation?

8. Environment

Food for thought

The environment cannot be changed by the company, at least in the short term.
It can only be included in considerations, i.e. reacted to.

  • Which main suppliers does our company have? How does the cooperation take place?
  • Which partners does our company have who support the performance of the company? How is the cooperation?
  • What legal requirements does our company have to comply with?

Subsequently, the participants derive first steps for a necessary transformation process from the analysis during the CANVAS process.
