The Heart-Centred Design Canvas

An adaptation of the business model canvas

The Heart-Centred Design Canvas is typically completed after a series of activities and spiritually-grounded aspirations to help achieve clarity on deep inner purpose, values and intentions when embarking on a new creative or entrepreneurial journey. This canvas is based on the popular Business Model Canvas tool developed by Strategyzer and is an adaptation of similar methodologies including the Lean Canvas often used by startups to prototype and iterate design ideas. 

The 5-Week Program helps participants to develop their own Heart-Centered Design Canvas to imagine, test and refine their own spiritually-aligned professional aspirations.
