THE AGILE CANVAS: a single, simple and powerful model for Strategic Planning

With the "Agile canvas," we facilitate any level of planning, decision-making, problem solving, design and implementation. 

The Agile Canvas is a model that brings out the best thinking in people in ways that build trust and purpose. The model was created by Jack Ricchiuto, a 16 time author and writer who designs and facilitates workshops on a variety of topics including innovation, leadership, facilitation, storytelling planning, community building, network weaving, happiness and entrepreneurship.  Jack and Evan have used the Agile Canvas to develop more collaborative strategic plans, help startups get moving on their ideas, and bring teams together to solve problems. 

The Agile Canvas is comprised of three parts: Intentions, Questions, and Sprints

Agile Canvas: Intentions, Questions, Sprints

The Agile Canvas is organized into three simple and powerful elements: intentions, questions and sprints.

Intentions describe what we want to see possible. They are the success and progress indicators we want to create. Intentions keep us continuously inspired and focused.

Questions describe what we need to know. They are the kinds of research and decisions required to realize our stories. Questions keep us continuously learning and realistic.

Sprints describe what we will do. They are the 2-week cycles of work that will achieve our most significant stories. Sprints keeps us continuously strengths-based and productive.
