Where can Project Canvas be used?

Project Canvas is made by project facilitators and project management professionals, who seek to simplify the challenge of project communication – before, in and after project execution:

project kickstart: pitching and project initiation.

project overview: project briefing and status.

project management: task assignment and project progress.

Project Canvas gives users a common communication framework for all bodies involved in the project process. Thus, decreasing changes of misunderstandings – and hereby wasted money and time – among everyone involved in the project.

Build on top of well known methodologies

Project Canvas is built on the basis of studying the similarities in the popular project management methodologies: PRINCE2, PMI and Scrum. The following 12 elements was chosen after both qualitative and quantitative comparison and empirical prototyping with both small (1-4 people) and large (12-50 people) project organizations: purpose, scope, success criteria, outcome, team, stakeholders, users, resources, constraints, risks, milestones and actions. The visual representation is inspired by the well-known and widely used Business Model Canvas and Game Plan.
