PROJECT CANVAS Online – create a shared understanding of a project with all key actors

The Project Canvas by Over the Fence is a visual tool for customer centric project design.

We have always used the tool in online meetings, too. But never as often and as varied as in the past months. We ran a dozen online workshops ourselves; hundreds of applications were reported to us from the “Over the Fence” community (

In this interactive workshop you get a hands-on Project Canvas experience online. We will introduce the Project Canvas as a visual tool and powerful dialogue format to help diverse teams to “think better together”. In this session we will apply the Project Canvas to real projects of participants.

No fiction involved. Be prepared to be surprised! Afterwards, participants will be able to use the (free) tool for online project kick-off workshops on their own.
