What is this for?

The scoping canvas will help your team align on the scope of your innovation project.

The scoping canvas is your starting point in this accelerator journey. Clearly define what’s in scope and what’s out of scope, without deciding on a specific solution or problem to solve.

Step-by-step guide.

Step 1

Individually fill in the 8 boxes of the canvas with sticky notes (15 min). 

Step 2

The team leader should facilitate a discussion starting from box 2 to box 8. Don’t take longer than 10 minutes per box (70 min).

Step 3

Have a final discussion on outstanding items from the previous step (10 min). 

STEP 4

Individually reflect on box 1 and write down your challenge statement 
(10 min). 

STEP 5

Have a discussion on box 1 and agree on a final challenge statement (15 min).

Tip: Ask for feedback on your scoping canvas from colleagues, customers, etc. and revisit your challenge statement.
