Lean UX Canvas
A lean UX canvas is a popular workshop tool that serves as a step-by-step guide to both understand the current landscape of business and customer needs, and acts as a catalyst for the creation of hypotheses to validate. It was created by UX consultant Jeff Gothelf.
According to him the lean UX canvas help teams frame their work as a business problem to solve (rather than a solution to implement) and then dissect that business problem into its core assumptions. Then weave those assumptions into hypotheses. Finally, it helps design experiments to test the riskiest hypotheses.
If you’re asking yourself when to use this tool, the site Miro explains that the Lean UX canvas is beneficial during project research, design, and planning—especially the discovery phase. When your team is developing a variety of projects at the same time, traditional UX methods often won’t work. You simply cannot use standard methods to deliver UX in such a short time. Luckily, Lean UX helps you deliver a high-quality user experience without sacrificing efficiency.
The process for completing a lean ux canvas is actually very easy to follow! Each topic is ordered by number from 1-8 and descriptions are provided so each section is easy to understand. What is important, is making sure the right members of the team are included – a mix of management and customer-focussed staff will help fill out both business needs, identifying customers and their needs as Pixel Fusion explains.
