“I used the concepts and material presented in this course to demonstrate to my PM
team the value of Lean Canvases in product development. They loved the idea so
much that we’re currently piloting Lean Canvases as part of our product
management “playbook”. I highly recommend this course to product managers and
other product professionals!”
Sonia Meskini, Product Manager at Prophix Software, Inc.
This course takes you step-by-step through the process of creating a Lean Canvas, a variant of the Business Model Canvas. The course is designed to be brief, giving you an overview of the canvas and deep dives on each building block with a goal of helping you create a compelling, one-page representation of your product's business model. You can then use the Lean Canvas to:
- Drive alignment on the product development team
- Identify gaps in product ideas
- Build a compelling business case to get funding for your product ideas.
