The Enterprise Canvas is an organization blueprint that lists down what you do (or want to do), how you go about doing it, and how you capture value.
According to Cheewid, it allows you to have complete and clearer overview which encourages fresh perspectives and ideas about how individual business component fit together. The practice also helps to keep the team discussion more focused and aligned. To briefly summarize the benefits –
- It structures and fosters discussions
- It’s fast and simple
- It intuitively tests solution-to-market fit, feasibility, and value proposition
Completing this Enterprise Canvas greatly reduces the risk of failure. This is a toolkit devoted towards Social Enterprise and it was inspired by DIY Toolkit, TBD Community, Steve Blank, Westminster School of Business, Strategyzer, Selnet, Unicef Fundraising, Danish Technological Institute, Global Impact Investing Network and Social Lean Canvas.
This concept is applicable and recommended for organizations either starting or sustaining. The activity can be conducted among team units or peers where ideas are bounced back and forth.
