Ok, so: your team is working on an innovation project, and you may have discussed a roadmap, filled in a nice business model innovation canvas or even set up a war room. But do you and your team have a common ground about the most important constituents of your project? Did you ever took 30 minutes to sum them up into a brief, 1-page document?
Our ING team recently designed the scoping canvas, a 1-page innovation framework aiming to make you explicitly formalize an opinion around 8 fundamental components of every innovation project.
This tool was initially designed for teams working on incremental innovation, but it very much applies to every person in the world who has an innovative business proposition.
Focus on the problem and its context and keep an open mind – the team might come up with different solutions.
