images-2It all started with the success of the Business Model Canvas and due to that success, many more canvasses for different purposes were created. In several of my posts I showed one or more. It’s a perfect instrument to avoid bulky, inaccessible, standalone, and illegible documents. It’s also a tool that increases collaboration between all involved stakeholders and it will help to create buy-in.
